Headquartering and Economic Substance

Cyprus is undeniably a key jurisdiction for the headquarters of multinationals and substance offices of small and medium-sized entities. Cyprus’ strategic location, quality of life, highly educated workforce, and corporate taxation make the country an emerging destination for businesses and high-net-worth individuals.

Over the past few years, there was an enormous step towards the de-offshorization of companies, with many companies shifting to actual economic substance, in which corporate activities are transparent and substance together with rationale is no longer questioned.

Cyprus follows the OECD model convention and offers a favorable 12.5% corporation tax on income generated from tax residents of Cyprus. Companies may also benefit from other schemes related to tax residents of Cyprus which allow companies to have tax relief and thus not be taxed in a group of incomes such as dividend income, interest income, FX gains, gains arising from loan restructuring, and many others.
