Advantages Of A Cyprus Company
The establishment of a Cyprus company may, if structured correctly, offer a tax efficient way for businessmen around the world to conduct their business internationally. Below you may find a list of advantages which should be taken into consideration and which will assist you in determining whether a Cyprus company is in fact the ideal corporate structure for your business:
Advantages of a Cyprus Company:
1. The incorporation of a Cyprus company allows businessmen to carry out their business activities in Cyprus and abroad at a very low corporate tax rate of 12.5% (among the lowest rates within the EU).
2. The registration of a Cyprus company may be achieved with 100% foreign shareholders, noting that Cyprus Company Law requires that a company has as a minimum, one shareholder and one director. Corporate shareholders and/or corporate directors are permitted and they can be of any nationality, however, care should be taken to ensure that the companyís management and control is exercised in Cyprus. The management and control principle is the only test for tax purposes.
3. Dividends paid to a company resident in Cyprus are exempt from corporation tax notwithstanding that such dividends emanate from a foreign (under certain circumstances) or a local company. There is also no withholding tax on dividends repatriated to a non-resident individual or corporate shareholder.
4. A Cyprus company can also benefit from more than 60 double tax treaties entered into between the Republic of Cyprus and Greece, Russia, Poland, France, India, China, Singapore, Ireland, South Africa, the United Kingdom, the United States and Luxembourg, to name a few.
