Cyprus – prominent hub for businesses located in EU
12,5% corporate tax rate (one of the lowest corporate tax rates in EU) is the obvious advantage for choosing Cyprus as EU location for company registration. Due to this tax rate Cyprus is often referred to as European tax haven. While it is not zero, with numerous further exemptions and incentives, it can further be reduced to as low as 2.5%.
Over the past three decades Cyprus has systematically and rapidly grown into a prominent business hub located in Europe. Being a full member of European Union and Eurozone, Cyprus further benefits of its location. The perfect location in Eastern Mediterranean, close to the Middle East and North Africa for Cyprus plays a role as a significant shipping hub.
