It is important to note that Cyprus is neither an offshore nor a tax haven anymore – it is a credible EU jurisdiction. Cyprus is a competitive international financial centre that offers comfortable business environment, being an ideal platform for investment and growth, particularly in the EU and MENA regions, as well as by offering efficient corporate taxation solutions. Cyprus companies are considered onshore and, apart from the benefits of being registered in Cyprus, they enjoy the same EU benefits as the companies from the other countries of the EU.

Cyprus complies with all EU directives and is on the OECD white list of territories conforming with international best tax practices.
