Cyprus companies that are registered for VAT must charge VAT on their supplies of goods and services and submit periodic VAT returns. The standard VAT rate in Cyprus is 19%
Cyprus companies must deduct withholding tax from payments made to non-resident individuals and companies for certain types of income such as dividends, interest and royalties.
Cyprus companies must ensure that all related-party transactions are conducted on an arm's-length basis and that documentation is kept to support the pricing of such transactions.
Cyprus companies must file annual tax returns within specific deadlines.
Cyprus companies must pay corporate income tax and VAT on a regular basis, usually on a quarterly basis.
