Introduction to accounting-audit-tax in Cyprus

What is it? Accounting and auditing services in Cyprus analyse and communicate financial information for all types of company formations, as well as individuals. They help ensure such entities run efficiently, by having accounts and financial records maintained accurately, and taxation properly submitted. Whether you consider your company full-fledged onshore or a company offshore, accounting, auditing and tax services are absolutely essential in successful management. They are anyway required by company law in Cyprus.

Primary duties revolve around preparing, analysing, and verifying the company's financial documents, namely for audits and taxation purposes. Further to this, services can span to company budget analysis, performances, financial and investment planning, banking services, as well as limited accounting and tax sector legal services. Internally, accounting services can examine and evaluate a firm's financial information and systems, management procedures, and internal controls to ensure that records are accurate and adequate. They also review a company's operations, evaluating efficiency, effectiveness, and compliance with corporate policies, as well as government regulations.

Who is it for? Accounting, audit and tax services can be for a broad range of entities/clients, including corporations, governments, non-profit organisations, or individuals.

Agents that are affiliated to Investment Gateway and Investment Gateway associates are particularly specialised in accounting and tax solutions for Cypriot international business companies, including full foreign-owned entities establishing a company offshore in Cyprus. A wealth of experience ensures companies receive utmost service and care in international accounting-auditing-tax strategies. Meanwhile, extensive contacts and distribution channels ensure all proceedings are executed effectively.

Cyprus maintains an impressive network of double tax treaties, which combined with the low tax paid by companies, offer great possibilities for international investment tax planning.

Certification, Qualifications and Experience

Industry recognition is first and foremost gained through certification, ensuring all work is approved by government authorities in Cyrus and in line with standard practice – or any other jurisdiction required.

Then, excellence and professionalism is attained via higher qualifications. This provides competence in a specialised field, whilst also furthering industry knowledge beyond the boundaries of the Cyprus accounting sector. Indeed, since Cyprus positioned itself as a global financial centre over 30 years ago, the local labour force studying the industry increased significantly. To this say, it is the most popular education for young students and the most popular profession in the country. Hence why infrastructure in professional services, namely in accounting-auditing-tax, but also legal is so well developed in Cyprus. Beyond this, Cyprus has become a popular destination for foreign workers in the industry, particularly from emerging markets in Eastern Europe, Russia, CIS, Central Asia and the Middle East, but also from Western Europe, especially the UK.

Finally, extensive experience and a wide network of contacts provide Cypriot agents a crucial edge in international accounting and taxation solutions. Experience means the accountant has "been there and done that", comfortable in knowing what to do in all types of situations and making sure progress is truly smooth and functional. Meanwhile, the accountant's local and global network is a key channel of distribution.

Indeed, Cyprus has a long history in international accounting and tax services, and is fast becoming the world's most popular destination for such activities offshore/abroad.
