Cyprus Corporation Tax

 

Companies that are Tax Residents in Cyprus are liable to tax on their worldwide income, which is received both in Cyprus and abroad. Companies, which are non tax residents, but carry out business activities through a permanent establishment in Cyprus, are liable to tax only on the income derived in Cyprus. Companies are considered as Cyprus Tax Residents provided that they are managed and controlled in Cyprus.
