Cyprus is a leading center for International Business and a combination of favorable factors has made Cyprus one of the most attractive places in the world for the registration of international entities. Among these we might cite the geographical location of Cyprus, the beneficial tax regime, the double-tax treaties with a large number of countries, the excellent telecommunication networks and infrastructure, the high level of legal, banking and accounting services, the fact that company law is based on the English model, the extensive use of the English language and the respectable status enjoyed by Cypriot companies.
