Corporate Secretarial services in Cyprus

The governing legislation for Corporate Secretarial services in Cyprus is the Cyprus Companies Law, Cap. 113. This is based largely in the English Companies Act 1948, however since Cyprus became a member of the EU in 2004, there has been a major revision of the laws to ensure compliance with European standards. The Cyprus Companies Law supports the establishment of five company categories.

They are:

  • Private and public limited liability companies
  • General and limited partnerships
  • Sole proprietorships
  • European companies
  • Branches of a foreign country

If you require our corporate secretarial services to set up or administer a company, our professional staff can assist you.

Any physical or legal person is entitled to form a company in Cyprus. The person may be of EU origin or not, however, under Cypriot law only a lawyer registered with the Cyprus Bar Association is permitted to prepare the memorandum and articles of association as well as the required declaration form for the Registrar of Companies.

We prepare and hold general meetings and make subsequent reports to the Registrar of Companies when required. We arrange all necessary documentation for company decision making processes and submit any reports to the Registrar of Companies. We can keep your corporate file and registers in the proper and required order.
