Types of Cypriot companies
The most popular business structures for registering a company in Cyprus are:

— Sole Proprietorship
This form is suitable if you do not need to hire employees and you can run a business on your own account. Income from activities is subject to personal income tax at a rate of 0 to 35%.

– Private limited company (LTD – Private Limited Company)
This is the most popular type of company in Cyprus and does not require a specific minimum share capital. The number of shareholders is from 1 to 50.

— Branch of a foreign company
Branches of companies are registered during the expansion of the parent company and are treated as separate structures. The parent company is fully responsible for all debts of the branch.
If there is a branch, it is possible to obtain a work and residence permit for TOP employees from the parent company under the Intra Company Transfers program.
Intra Company Transfers (ICT) provides for a simplified procedure for obtaining a residence permit for a manager and key employees and is issued upon transfer from a parent company to its own branch in one of the EU countries.

— Cyprus Trust
Trust is a mechanism of legal relations, according to which the founder of the Trust transfers his assets (property of the trust) to the trust property of the Trustee/Principal (Trustee), who is obliged to manage the assets in favor of the Beneficiary or to achieve a specific goal on the terms provided for in the Trust Agreement ( trustdeed). A Cyprus Trust can conduct business in Cyprus and abroad.
