Kindly note that a webinar will be held on Wednesday 04/06/2014 entitled Cyprus commercial companies and the need for ‘Substance’.

The webinar starts at 11:00 EEST (Limassol / Athens).


Cyprus is not only an attractive business location for holding, financing and other passive investment activities. Thanks to a wealth of fiscal and other advantages, Cyprus also forms a very appealing proposition for establishing companies with commercial activities. If the structure is set up and operated wisely, it can not only generate substantial benefits, but it can also ensure that any chances of disputes by foreign tax, and other authorities, are kept to a minimum. Your business needs ‘Substance’.

There are limited places available so REGISTER NOW to secure your participation.
