Why Cyprus

Cyprus an International Business Centre and at the same time an enjoyable island to live.

Why Cyprus?

Cyprus, a Member State of the European Union (EU), is a winning combination for Investors to register a Cyprus company and/or operate an international head quarter (HQ ) in the island, as many multinational companies have already done.

Setting up a Cyprus company can be ideal because of the island’s strategic geographic location, being in the Eastern Mediterranean at the crossroads of three continents. Moreover, Cyprus has good relations in the region giving the Cyprus Company an access to both the EU single market and at the same time the markets of Middle East (M.E), Asia and Africa.

A Cyprus company will be benefited by/from the transparent legal and tax system, the extended network of EU trade agreements and Double Tax Treaty Agreements ( DTTA ), the free movement of goods as EU state, backed up by excellent quality life and high-quality professional services.

Cyprus offers to investors great investment opportunities in emerging markets like real estate, technology, investment funds, shipping as well as oil and gas.

Cyprus is most appealing for setting up an international head quarter (HQ) due to all the above plus to the efficient and transparent legal and tax system based on common law, the modern banking sector and the beneficial tax regime to investors, companies, and expatriates in Cyprus.

Annotating your acronyms from the beginning is useful so that you can then freely use them throughout the text.
