Cyprus company: registration, deadlines, cost

Registering a company in Cyprus is quite easy. If needed, it could be done with an authorized capital of €1 within 10 business days (though the standard authorized capital amount is still €1,000).

Cyprus offers favorable tax conditions:

  • 19% VAT (its application depends on the activity area);

Registration cost

The final cost is the sum of the services selected:

  • company registration — €999;

This includes:

  1. providing a registered office;
  • director — legal entity: €49 per month or €495 per year; individual — €99 per month or €999 per year;

This includes:

  1. representing interests of a company;

When choosing an individual, fewer documents will be required to open an account and for any other procedures.

  • accounting — €999 per year, if no more than 10 transactions (incoming and outgoing) are expected monthly;

The scope and cost of services will be negotiated with each client individually.

Procedure and deadlines for registration

In Cyprus, the company registration procedure consists of 5 steps only:

  1. The client selects services by answering the following questions: will the secretary be enough or is a local director required? / does he/she need a bank account straight after the registration? / will the subscription be monthly or annual?

What is the minimum set of documents to register a legal entity? Details of the beneficiary shall be provided:

  • color scanned copy of the foreign travel passport;

A similar set of documents shall be provided for all shareholders/directors. Documents in any foreign language require certified translations (documents in English and Greek will be accepted).

The minimum period to register a company is 10 business days, but this is applicable under ideal conditions. Within 24 hours after meeting the client and obtaining the necessary information from them, a set of documents will be prepared (the period may increase, if the client chooses any name that is not on our list, which will be checked for uniqueness within 4–5 days). After signing prepared documents, it will take up to 7 days to register the company and perform further certification and apostilling of the corporate documents.
