Types Of Cyprus Company

Any physical person of age and any legal entity irrespective of nationality can own a company. A company in Cyprus is also called an IBC, or Cyprus IBC which means a Cyprus International Business Company. The most common Cyprus company formation is a private company limited by shares, and of course as the name suggests it is of limited liability. That means that its members (the shareholders) of the company are only liable to the extent of the value of the shares they own in it. The large majority of companies involve limited liability companies. However, the law in Cyprus allows for the formation of other types of legal entities too such as:

1. A private company limited by guarantee.

2. A private exempt company.

3. A partnership either general or limited.

4. A public company limited by shares.

5. Cyprus sole proprietorship (Law , Cap 116).

6. A non-profitable organization.

7. A Cyprus local or offshore or international trust.

8. A club.
