Answers


1.Do I have to come to Cyprus for registering an International Business Company?

No, you do not have to be physically present in Cyprus either during the registration procedure or later when the company is operational. If you do not choose to set up a fully-fledged office and you use our address as the registered office of the company, you can send us instructions on any aspect of the company’s administration by fax or e-mail and we will carry out any necessary work. A number of our clients have never visited Cyprus and yet they are operating very profitable and efficient IBCs.
 

2.How is confidentiality ensured?

When a Cyprus International Business Company is registered in Cyprus, the company’s file at the Registrar of Companies (which contains details of the directors, shareholders, company secretary and registered office) is open to inspection by the public. IBC’s can avoid this by appointing nominee directors and shareholders i.e. persons to act on their behalf, in such a case it is the names of the nominees which will appear in the company’s file. The identity of the true owners will only be disclosed to the local Banks if the company chooses to maintain a bank account in Cyprus. Information regarding the identity of the true owners is not disclosed to any third party or government authority.


3.If nominees are appointed, how am I safeguarded?

If you choose to appoint nominee directors and shareholders (our fiduciary services can be used for this purpose), then for your protection you will be provided with the following documents:

  • An undated transfer of shares from the nominee shareholder to the true owner, which can be dated by you at any time and filed with the Registrar of Companies.
  • A declaration of trust which is signed by the nominee shareholder stating that he is holding the shares in a trustee capacity and that he has no legal rights on those shares
  • An undated letter of resignation from each nominee director and the company secretary. You are then able to put a date on this letter at any time and file the change at the Registrar of Companies, thus removing the nominee director and appointing another director of your choice.


4.Can I get a company or personal credit card?

You can get both a personal and company credit card, and also a debit card which is connected to your company or personal bank account.


5.What is share capital?

The share capital is the amount of capital, which the first shareholders will subscribe for, expressed in euros, and is stated in the company’s constitutional documents as part of the registration process. Normally IBC’s are registered with a share capital of € 1.000 in order to avoid extra stamp duties at the Registrar of Companies. The capital is deposited by the shareholders in the company’s bank account and can be utilized in the normal course of the company’s business.  


6.What is tax resident?

An International Business Company is tax resident in Cyprus if management and control is exercised in Cyprus. Management and control is defined as where the majority of the directors reside, where the board meetings take place and where the general policy of the company is formulated. It is therefore imperative to establish tax residency in Cyprus in order to be able to be taxed under the Cyprus Tax Law and to enjoy the Double Tax Treaties benefits. The appointment of local nominee directors is an excellent structure for achieving Cyprus tax residency.  


7.How much will it cost me for core and specialized services?
