Cyprus is currently one of the most favorable countries in the world for business set up and development. The country has a straightforward business registration process, advantageous residency programs and tax incentives for businesses and residents alike.

The corporate tax rate is only 12.5 percent, the lowest in Europe while also providing the full range of benefits of being a business in the European Union. Additionally, a Cyprus Limited Company can be set up in as little as a few short weeks.

Contact the Aspen Group Trust today to learn about why more businesses are choosing to relocate to Cyprus over other European destinations and let us tell you how you can make it happen in a few weeks.

The simple answer is no. Cyprus offers several easy and efficient ways to become a permanent tax resident or citizen of the country.

Options at a glance:

  • Golden Visa Program: Non-EU individuals may deposit a minimum amount into a bank for three years, demonstrate proof of annual income and buy residential property to gain a visa. While in the visa program individuals are not allowed to work, but they are able to set up a business and receive tax-free dividends. Spouses and children are also eligible to gain visas.
  • 60 Day Rule: Non-domiciled individuals need to stay only 60 days annually in Cyprus in order to qualify as a permanent tax resident. Non-domicile status is for those who have not previously been a Cyprus resident or national.
  • Residency by Investment: Individuals may purchase property, commercial or residential, to quickly gain residency status. There are several ways to achieve this and the team at the Aspen Trust Group can help you explore this route in more detail.

For a complete breakdown of the immigration options available to you, contact us today and let us help you navigate through the system.

Cyprus is quickly gaining international attention with a favorable business environment and an attractive tax system. Moreover, Cyprus is a wonderful place to live and work. This gorgeous island is ideally situated in the Mediterranean Sea and connects Europe, Africa, and Asia.

The weather is sunny and warm all year-round and picturesque nature surrounds the island. It is also one of the safest countries in the EU.

Cyprus is home to a thriving business market, a growing real estate market, vibrant Greek culture and history, advanced healthcare systems, and an affordable cost of living estimated to be 25 percent lower than that of the rest of Europe.

We feel Cyprus lives up to its title as the ‘Jewel of the Mediterranean’ which is why we love having our office in Nicosia, Cyprus. Reach out to us and let us share all the reasons why Cyprus makes our lives better.
