Cyprus is fast becoming one of the top emerging investment fund centres in Europe and Middle East, offering unique access to high-growth markets. This is the result of continuous efforts to enhance its legislative and regulatory regime, backed up by a strong network of financial and professional service providers, offering high quality services at highly competitive prices.
Low operating costs, a simple and effective legal system based on the Common Law and an attractive tax framework offering one of the lowest corporate tax rates (12.5%) in the EU and access to an extended network of 65 Double Tax Treaties and a range of incentives for both companies and individuals, contribute greatly to Cyprus’ increased competitiveness in relation to other EU jurisdictions.
