With a business-friendly environment and low corporate tax, Cyprus continually proves itself as more than a summer holiday destination. Ranking 54th in ease of doing business by the World Bank (and in the top 50 of ease of starting a business), the Cypriot government boasts many initiatives that have improved its professional climate. These include; establishing an attractive non-domiciled status for foreign investors which opens the country up to more investment opportunities and providing tax credits for fund managers, as well as tax exemptions on dividend income, profits from permanent overseas establishments, sale of securities and international transactions. Cyprus also ensures that profits less than 17,088 Euros are not subjected to capital gains tax, and resident businesses only pay their corporate tax at 12.5%, further creating a favourable business climate. They also effectively utilise their EU membership by allowing EU citizens to set-up a business without requiring a local partner. Companies can be incorporated in as little as 15 days, and with their low corporate tax; 12.5%, one of the lowest in the EU, it is a prime location for business formation.
Cyprus has the additional advantage of being located at the crossroads of Europe, Africa and Asia, allowing optimal networking, trading and business operations. Animo Cyprus is located in Nicosia, the capital, giving us a prime local location.
