The equivalent of cross-border corporate immigration for those companies wishing to change the jurisdiction under whose laws are being registered and incorporated while maintaining the same legal identity and enjoying more favorable tax regimes and benefits. Cyprus Law provides for the re-domiciliation of companies in and out of Cyprus and due the islands’ exact unique position to invest, restructure or hold underlying assets in addition to its rather most favorable tax regime, Cyprus has become one of the most favorable jurisdictions of choice for international corporate structures.
The Re-domiciliation process includes many steps, provided that such is allowed in the foreign company’s’ M&A by applying to the Cyprus Registrar of Companies starting from name pre-approval in the country of registration, registration and supporting documentation. Once the Registrar is satisfied with the documentation submitted a Temporary Certificate of Continuation of the Company in Cyprus is issued. The foreign company is thus considered a legal person duly incorporated under the Laws of the Republic Cyprus for the purpose of the Companies Law Cap 113 and has the same liabilities and powers that registered companies have according to the Laws of Cyprus. Within six months from the issuance of the Temporary Certificate of Continuation, a confirmation of the official transfer of the company and the issuance of a certificate which indicates that it is removed from the companies’ registry in the country of origin must be submitted to the Cyprus Registrar of Companies. Failure to maintain the deadline, save for special circumstances, will render the procedure of re-domiciliation cancelled. A Certificate of Continuation is consequently issued confirming that the company continues in Cyprus. Note should be taken in that, such registration will nonetheless be deemed unlawful in cases where the purpose (among others) of the re-domiciliation was to create a new legal entity or where dissolution or liquidation procedures have been initiated with regards to the foreign company.
Intellectual Property Registration
Cyprus has become an even more attractive jurisdiction for companies from all over the world further to the new tax exemptions arising from the IP rights use. Intellectual Property Rights holding companies add value and enhance their competitiveness while taking advantage of the favorable tax deductions and exemptions.

With Cyprus been a signatory in multiple EU and International Agreements on IP rights including WIPO (Word Intellectual Property Organization), the Madrid Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Marks (the Madrid Agreement) and Protocol to the Madrid Agreement, in conjunction with the extensive network of Double tax avoidance agreement, an attractive taxation scheme on the exploitation of the IP rights through Cyprus has been established.
