Tax Regime in Cyprus

Why confine your business within borders when you can operate and prosper on a global scale? Cyprus presents an array of remarkable opportunities for international expansion, reducing your tax obligations, and facilitating a transparent and convenient business process.
Cyprus operates on a worldwide taxation principle, making it highly attractive to resident businesses of all sizes. Your profits are taxed on a global income basis, irrespective of service location, business counterparts, or company structure.
The country’s modest income tax rate, standing at a mere 12.5%, is worth highlighting. This is among the lowest in Europe, enabling you to retain a substantial portion of your profits.
Intend to distribute your success amongst shareholders? Excellent! Cyprus imposes no withholding tax on dividend payouts. More dividends for your investors translates to more investments for your business.
As for Value Added Tax (VAT)? In Cyprus, it’s set at 19%, but for specific categories of goods and services, discounted rates of 9%, 5%, or even zero are applicable. This unfolds vast opportunities for diverse business sectors
Don’t miss your chance to broaden your global reach and streamline your tax obligations. Cyprus is the perfect environment for your business to flourish and thrive.

Financial Reporting in Cyprus

The cornerstone of a successful business is responsibility. Operating a company in Cyprus brings with it certain obligations that significantly impact your success and the robustness of your enterprise. Rest assured, we’re here to assist you through this process.
Cyprus law mandates that every company, without exception, submit audited accounts. The annual reporting period spans 12 months and aligns with the calendar year, commencing on January 1 and concluding on December 31. However, in your company’s inaugural year, the reporting period may be extended to 18 months. If your company is registered in July, the reporting period will span from the registration date to December 31 of the subsequent year.
Reporting is not solely limited to tax authorities but also extends to the Registry. To evade penalties, every company must submit the HE32 form to the Registry.
Income tax should be remitted by July 31 of the year following the reporting year. It’s crucial to bear in mind that in order to maintain your business in good standing, all companies are required to pay a Levy fee of 350 euros by June 30 each year.
Please note that if the Levy fee is remitted post-June 30, penalties will be imposed. The later the payment, the higher the penalty.
Your business warrants your attention and diligence. Don’t allow fines and penalties to impede your growth and prosperity. A responsible approach cultivates a culture of reliability and stability that reaps rewards in the form of a thriving and prosperous business. Remember your responsibilities, and your business will reciprocate with gratitude.
