Cyprus offers one of the lowest corporate tax rates in the EU, a sophisticated network of double tax treaties, no capital gains on profits from share and securities, liberal tax incentives and a well-developed financial and commercial infrastructure.
Cyprus is the mythical birthplace of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty.
The island's status as a member of the EEC brings further benefits to international business and complements its traditional links with central and Eastern Europe, Russia, India and China. The Cyprus authorities are also continually striving to create an environment conducive to international business. As a former British colony, the legal system in Cyprus broadly mirrors that of the UK.
