GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE COMPANIES OF THE REPUBLIC OF CYPRUS:
In the Republic of Cyprus, an offshore regime for international companies was in force from 1977 to 2004.
After the Republic of Cyprus joined the EU (May 01, 2004), the territory is no longer an offshore zone, but is still a fairly reliable and attractive low-tax jurisdiction.
The peak in the number of newly registered companies in Cyprus was in 2007. There were 29,016 registered companies. But since 2008 the number of companies established in Cyprus has been gradually decreasing. Thus, in 2015, 11 270 companies were established in Cyprus.
Cypre, as a member of the EU, has no disadvantages inherent in classical offshore zones (BVI, Bahamas, etc.).

CYPRUS COMPANY NAME
In order for the proposed name to be approved, it must not be too similar to the name of an already existing business entity or be misleading or undesirable.
Following the submission of application for approval of the proposed name, the Registrar of Companies will carry out a search, in relation to the proposed name of a company, which will not be limited only to Cypriot business entities. As a result of this search, the Registrar of Companies may reject a name for the purposes of protecting the reputation of an international organisation not registered in Cyprus (e.g. Coca Cola, McDonalds, etc).
At the same time, if the name contains restrictive words or expressions, the necessary consent of the competent governmental authority or other body should be obtained and submitted.
Once the name is approved, the application for the companys incorporation must be submitted, in accordance with the legal form of the proposed entity/business, within six (6) months; a period during which the approved proposed name is reserved.

ADDRESS
The company must maintain a registered office in the Republic of Cyprus, which must not be a mailbox. At the registered office of the company is where, all notifications and notices are sent (e.g. letters from the Registrar of Companies), and where the various companys registers (e.g. members, directors, charges etc.) and other documents are maintained.

It is noted that the directors and secretary are responsible for submitting the relevant documents and notifications, regarding the updating of the companys particulars, to the Registrar of Companies.

MEMBERS AND SHARE CAPITAL
The liability of the companys members depends on the type of company which will be selected.
For private companies there is no minimum share capital requirement, while the minimum nominal and issued capital of a public company offered for subscription is twenty-five thousand, six hundred and twenty-nine euros (25.629).
