Incorporate in Cyprus
Set up a Cyprus Private Company Limited
Due to its favorable tax regime, Cyprus is the gateway to the European common market chosen by many non-EU companies and a portal for investment from the West into Russia, Middle-east, Asia and South America. It is also a shipping hub, the Cypriot-registered vessel fleet is the fourth largest in the world, and provides large revenues.
Cyprus has one of the lowest corporate tax rates across the European Union (12.5%). In addition, dividends received by Cyprus companies are exempt from all taxes, with the exception of foreign-source dividends that are deductible for tax purposes for the paying company, being an interesting option for holding companies.
The new Cyprus IP box allows for a deductible notional expense calculated as 80% x qualifying profits from qualifying IP.
For the purposes of the 80% deduction, qualifying IP may be legally or economically owned and comprise:
- copyrighted software
- utility models, IP assets that grant protection to plants and genetic material, orphan drug designations, extensions of patent protection, and
- other IP that are non-obvious, useful, and novel, that are certified as such by a designated authority, and where the taxpayer satisfies size criteria (i.e. annual IP related revenue does not exceed EUR 7.5 million for the taxpayer, and group total annual revenue does not exceed EUR 50 million, using a five-year average for both calculations).
Marketing-related IP, such as trademarks, do not qualify.
Cyprus companies are commonly used for E-commerce, Yachting, Financial Services and as Holding companies.
