Corporate
and commercial

Situated in the Mediterranean Sea on the crossroad between three continents, Cyprus offers unique advantages for international investors and businessmen.

Cyprus offers a favorable investor-friendly tax rate of 12.5%,
which is one of the lowest corporate tax rates in the EU.

Location privileges

Companies registered in Cyprus benefit from the double taxation avoidance treaties between Cyprus and 45 European, Asian, Middle-Eastern and other countries. These treaties, in their majority, follow the OECD model. As a result foreign investors do not have to pay additional tax in their home country.

Multiple conventions

There is a significant network of bilateral and multilateral conventions and treaties with other countries and organisations.

Quality standards
