Taxation and Other Considerations
Cyprus offers advantageous tax incentives:
Corporate tax rate: Cyprus companies enjoy a 12.5% corporate tax rate, one of the lowest in Europe.
Personal tax optimization: Individuals can benefit from tax resident and non-domicile status.
Location and Networking
Cyprus’s strategic location within the EU makes it an ideal base for businesses. It provides access to Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, and Asia.
