              Taxation and financial reporting for companies in Cyprus

              Cyprus is not a classical offshore jurisdiction, so resident companies are committed to paying corporate income tax of 12.5%. However, if the company conducts its commercial activities and is managed outside Cyprus, it is exempt from paying tax. The annual fee, which is 350 euros, is obligatory.

              The following categories of profits are exempt from the payment of fees to the treasury:

              • Dividends received outside Cyprus;
              • Profits from stocks and other securities;
              • Income from a foreign branch.

              The standard VAT rate is 19%, there are also reduced rates of 9% and 5%, which apply depending on the type of activity carried out. If the company exports goods, a zero VAT rate applies.

              Cypriot companies are required to submit financial statements containing the opinion of an independent auditor; tax return and annual report.
