Cyprus Companies

The offshore companies and trusts are well-established concepts in Cyprus and have been widely used in international tax planning and succession planning for the last 20 years. As a full member of the European Union, Cyprus offers a secure, well-regulated financial environment for international clients to incorporate companies and place the shares of such companies into trusts. The favourable tax regime offers one of the lowest corporate tax rates within the EU.
