How to Register a New Company in Cyprus – Requirements

The actual time to register a company in Cyprus depends on the existing workload of the registration department of the Registrar of Companies.

However, to register a company from the beginning, it takes approximately 10 to 18 working days.

Steps to be followed while registering a company in Cyprus.

  • The first step in any registration is to give the company a name. A name or names, must therefore be submitted to the Registrar of Companies for approval. This can take between 3 – 6 working days. Once approval has been received, it is possible to proceed onto the next step which is the company registration. The process of registration takes additional 5 to 8 working days.

To start the registration process we require a completed questionnaire to be submitted to us by e-mail (info@impklawyers.com)  together with the following documents:

a) Where the shareholders of the company are natural persons, then in respect of each shareholder the following will be required:

  • A copy of the passport, preferably scanned, showing the photograph, personal details and signature of the individual.
  • A document evidencing the shareholder’s residential address. P.O. boxes are not accepted as a residential address.

b) In the case where a corporate body will be a shareholder in the company, then in respect of each corporate body the following will be required:

  • A copy of the incorporation certificate.
  • A copy of the certificate showing where the registered office of the company is situated.

* Where the documents are not in English, they should be translated, certified and apostilled.

c) According to the Cyprus Law the company must appoint at least one Director and a Company Secretary, where directors may be either natural persons or corporate bodies.

In respect of each officer of the company the following are required:

  • A copy of the passport, preferably scanned, showing the photograph, personal details and signature of the individual.
  • A document evidencing the residential address of the officer. P.O. boxes are not accepted as a residential address.
  • In respect of Directors only, information as to their profession.
  • In respect of Directors only, information as to whether they hold directorships in other companies. A simple “yes” or “no” is sufficient.

Where any of the officers of the company is another corporate body, then in respect of each corporate body the following are required:

  • A copy of the incorporation certificate.
  • A copy of the certificate showing where the registered office of the company is situated.

* Where the documents are not in English, they should be translated, certified and apostilled
