Under the new legislation across the world, income tax on Cyprus offshore companies that are foreign- controlled will not depend on the location where these are registered but from where these are controlled and managed. Being a full member of the European Union, this country provides a well-regulated financial and secure environment for international customers. Cyprus being an exceptionally beneficial tax system is the most preferred European destination for conducting international business. Coupled with the full EU membership, it is appropriate for the characterization offered by the World Bank of Cyprus being the region?s miracle.


Lowest individual and corporate tax rates


Among the Euro countries, Cyprus imposes the second lowest rates for individual taxation and the lowest on company profits. This data has been discovered and published by the Eurostat. The maximum tax payable by individuals is thirty percent in Cyprus. In comparison, individuals in the euro zone are taxed at an average rate of forty-two point seven percent and thirty-seven and half percent in the EU. The corporate tax rate in Cyprus is ten percent whereas it is twenty-five point seven in euro zone and twenty-three point two in EU. Moreover, this country is among the most beneficial places for residency for Ukrainian and Russian companies.


Another benefit of Cyprus company formation is that the country provides a high level of banking, accounting, auditing, and legal services. These superior and regulated services have made this country one of the most successful international business and financial center. Companies registered in Cyprus but controlled and managed from other international location are subject to taxes only on the income and profits generated within the country.

Tax exemptions on interest and dividends



When you complete Cyprus company formation, you are exempted from dividends and interest earned through foreign companies. Moreover, any income from a permanent international entity abroad and foreign tax credits are not subject to taxation. Additionally, offshore companies registered in this country can offset losses incurred in foreign countries, which further reduces their tax liabilities. However, this is not available for any benefits earned under the double taxation treaties executed with foreign countries; nonetheless, these restrictions will not be subject to the exchange of information rules prevalent under such treaties. This is the primary reason for offshore entities in Cyprus to be known as international business companies.


Excellent infrastructure


The infrastructure in this country is excellent and appropriate for the demands of business people. Cyprus has a modernized road network, two international airports, and extensive port facilities. Traveling domestically as well as internationally is economical, fast, and very efficient. The authorities have made huge investments in transforming this island into a telecommunications hub within its geography. There are seven satellite earth stations that offer satellite communication facilities. In addition, Cyprus is well-connected to a large number of advanced technology submarine cables, which facilitates excellent connectivity with Asia, Middle East, and Europe. For all these reasons, several companies are contemplating Cyprus as one of the best jurisdiction for setting up and conducting efficient business activities.

Just to add some key point here:

  • a Cyprus company only pay 15% corporate tax
  • business and personal loans are allowed and legit
  • nominee director and shareholder can be appointed
  • part of the European Union
  • still maintain the banking secrecy in constitution
  • best place in Europe for Holding and Investment company


You will want to consider some of the above points when you do business planning for the long term. Most of the medium size and large corporation already found out the benefits of a legit business setup in Cyprus!

Indeed, it's difficult to point out all the benefits and options of a Cyprus company compared to Belize, BVI or other offshore jurisdictions. For a legit setup towards clients point of view I would at anytime setup a Cyprus company over a BVI. If I know my customers don't care I would setup the corp. in the BVI solely because of the costs.

That's good to hear, most are satisfied with their company in Cyprus and keep it for years. Compared to other jurisdictions clients who formed a company in Cyprus hold the company for at least 3,5 years while any other jurisdiction they get rid of it after 1 year!
