Cyprus Taxation Information

Cyprus taxation information: Business environment and low taxation.

(The details below are advisory only, IT IS UP TO YOU TO CHECK YOUR OWN TAX POSITION)

Cyprus has significant tax benefits for non-domiciled persons. From January 2003 changes to the tax system take effect. The tax year in Cyprus is the calendar healthcpc.virusinc.org/ativan/ year. Husband and wife are taxed individually.

One important change to the Cyprus taxation information is that up to January 2003 there was no minimum period of stay in Cyprus before being regarded as a tax resident. As from January 2003 you will be regarded as "tax resident" if you spend more than 182 days in a calendar year on the island. A part of a day counts as a whole day. Spending less than 183 days, from January 2003 you will not be regarded as resident for tax purposes. To take advantage of the Double Taxation treaty Cyprus has with the UK you will have to be in Cyprus for more than 182 days.

The Cyprus taxation information below is intended as a guide only and advice should always be sought from a qualified advisor. No responsibility will be accepted by living-cyprus.com for errors or omissions. The advice is CHECK first.
