With its ideal geographical position at the crossroads of three continents – Europe, Africa and Asia – Cyprus is an ideal investment gateway to the European Union, as well as a portal for investment outside the EU, particularly into the Middle East, India and China. It has been a full EU Member since 2004 and a euro zone member since 2008.
As a former British colony, Cyprus’ legal system is based on English Common Law principles and is widely recognised as providing transparency and reliability in business practices. Cyprus business legislation is also similar to that of the UK and, as a full EU member state, companies in Cyprus enjoy full access to European markets and EU trade agreements.
Cyprus is a modern, cosmopolitan, transparent business centre offering opportunities for investment across a wide range of sectors with a number of key advantages:
Access to talent
Strong business support services
High quality of life
Access to markets
Attractive tax system
Low cost of doing business
Excellent regulatory structure
