Registration of Cyprus International (offshore) Company


In simple terms, a Cyprus International Business (offshore) Company (IBC) is a normal limited liability company which is used as a tool, legally, by corporations and individuals throughout the world to direct profits out of high tax countries into offshore jurisdictions or international financial centers thus taking advantage of low or zero tax and double tax treaties. The beneficial ownership and business activities of the Cyprus International Business (offshore) Company lie outside Cyprus.

Tax Advantages

A Cyprus IBC enjoys substantial tax incentives:
-Flat rate of 10% tax on net profits
-Zero tax if management and control is outside Cyprus
-No withholding tax on payment of dividends, interest and royalties
-Dividend income received is wholly exempt from Cyprus tax
-Profits from sale of shares and other securities wholly exempt from Cyprus tax
-Interest received wholly exempt from Cyprus tax (unless it arises from the ordinary course of business)
-No capital gains tax on sale of immovable property situated overseas
- No exchange control restrictions
-Wide network of Double Tax Treaties to avoid double taxation

Registration Procedure

Global Consultants can assist you in registering an IBC efficiently, timely and at low costs. Normally it will take approximately five working days to register an IBC.

The following information is normally required in order to register an IBC:
-Proposed name of company
-Brief description of main activities

Note: For each shareholder and director a copy of his passport together with a utility bill as proof of his residential address must be forwarded to us together with the above information.

Where confidentiality is important, Global Consultants can assist clients in providing fiduciary services such as nominee directors, nominee shareholders, company secretary and registered office for a small annual fee. Furthermore, it is important for tax purposes to establish that management and control of the company is exercised from Cyprus by using local resident directors. The local directors will act always upon receiving authorization and instructions from the beneficial owners. A series of documents such as trust deeds, undated blank instrument of transfer of shares and undated letters of resignation by the local nominee directors and nominee shareholders are drawn up and are in place in order to safeguard the interests of the beneficial owners.
