Incorporation of Cyprus companies
Cyprus is considered to be one of the most attractive jurisdictions in Europe to form a limited liability company due to its advantageous tax system. As a full member of the EU as of 1st of May 2004, Cyprus can offer one of the lowest corporate tax regimes in Europe of just 12.5%. Pagecorp Group assists diligently and broadly on the setting up of a company in Cyprus.
Provision of ready-made Cyprus shelf companies
At any time, a number of already registered Cyprus companies are available at Pagecorp Group. The list of already registered companies is available upon request. Such types of companies have not conducted any business and have no liabilities.

Shelf companies can be delivered to a client within 24 hours.

Cyprus Holding Companies
Cyprus is one of the most attractive countries within the European Union in which to set up a holding company. In essence, holding companies are set-up as an effective means of consolidating ownership of operating subsidiaries. A great number of international businesses have established Cyprus holding companies mainly due to the low corporate tax and the completely tax-free income from dividends and the reduced (or eliminated) withholding taxes, as a result of Cyprus’s extensive network of Treaties for the Avoidance of Double Taxation. Pagecorp Group has abundant expertise in establishing Cyprus holding companies.
Registration of Branches in Cyprus
Under the Companies Law, Chapter 113, foreign companies may register a branch in Cyprus. For the incorporation of a branch of an overseas company, several documents need to be filed with the Registrar of Companies, which, firstly, must be certified by the Registrar of Companies or by a Director of a company as true copies and legalized by an Apostille or Notary Public and translated in Greek. Pagecorp Group’s company administrators process all required papers and assist clients all the way through.

Re-domiciliation of companies
Many jurisdictions allow foreign companies to change their jurisdiction of incorporation. The legislation usually permits the transfer of a company’s “seat of incorporation” into or out of the jurisdiction. Cyprus is included amongst the jurisdictions which allow re-domiciliation in and out of Cyprus and has achieved it by enacting an amended Companies law and a set of regulations explaining its practical application. Pagecorp Group assists collectively on all re-domiciliation matters with the utmost care.
