Doing Business Investment in Cyprus

In our view, there is no straight alternative to Cyprus as a International Trade and Shipping is far too advanced
and flexible. There are other jurisdictions that contain a number of features, but not in full length. One would need
to use several jurisdictions, with several layers of

1. Increase in built area (density)

a) Rural places for golf courses etc. by 10%
b) Tourist Zones (existing 20-40%) by 30%
c) Inhabited district areas by 20%
d) Town areas on main and secondary roads by 20%, 25% or 30%.

Overall 5% addition in density for projects built on renewable energy systems.
Fast track process for securing planning permission, building licence and even provisional permission
that greatly helps investors, developers very greatly for obvious reasons.

2. Free tax re-investment profits from one project to the other for new developments started to be developed from June 2013 to May 2015. It
is expected that his law will be renewed for another two years during this Government’s ruling period.

3. Non-EU Investors for 1-2 houses by €300,000 and over are entitled to Investors for €5 million
and over Cyprus permanent Cyprus residency and EU visa.

4. Quite a number of other incentives and relaxa-tions have already been granted and others are
said to follow. Among those already granted is 100% depreciation on technologies and innovation and 25% of all other assets.

EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT OF ENTERPRISES 2012

Hi, do you remember when I was posting an article about the European Parliament of Enterprises of 2008? Where I had been as a member of European enterprises.

 

It’s coming soon again. When? 18th of October, 2012.

 

Contact your chamber of commerce and register your company. I’m not really  sure when is the application deadline for each country however, it’s just a reminder.

EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT OF ENTERPRISES 2012

EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT OF ENTERPRISES 2012

It has been already 4 years since I have been chosen to represent Czech Republic as the entrepreneur ( 20 in total) in EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT OF ENTERPRISES 2008. It allowed businessmen and businesswomen to become Members of the European Parliament for one day, debate and vote on some of the most crucial topics currently at the heart of the political debate. If you are an entrepreneur one of the EU country and would like to rise your hand and say your opinion in the Hemicycle infront of 750 fellows, send a request to your chamber of commerce. The next event is going to take a place in Brussels during the autumn, 2012.

 

One of the most important matter for this event is networking and find potential customer or even to start new project! It’s not a vacation or politics its about your company, your deal!

 

good luck
