Cyprus has always been a center of companies’ incorporation and corporate structures, a sector which has been significantly upgraded since its EU Accession on 1st May 2004. With the enactment of its New Tax Legislation and the abolition of the “offshore regime”, Cyprus has put in place a simplified, effective and transparent tax system that is fully EU, OECD, FATF and FSF compliant. The result is a stable EU, “non-offshore” tax-competitive jurisdiction with exciting tax planning potential for EU and non-EU clients alike, whilst maintaining one of the lowest corporate tax rates in the European Union.
Cyprus Law provides that only Cyprus lawyers may incorporate Cyprus companies, and the long experience of local firms has evolved this into a very straightforward procedure. Panagos & Panagos LLC and their associates provide prompt, comprehensive and specialised legal advice and services, with of course strict compliance to the clients’ instructions, in all aspects of domestic and international business and is able to guide and assist clients in all steps of the incorporation process such as:
- Cyprus Company Incorporation / Formation.
- Cyprus Company Management and Administration.
- Mergers and Acquisitions.
- Corporate support.
- Offshore companies.
