Register a retail company in Cyprus

In order to register a company in Cyprus, the investor will have to propose a trading name to represent the business at the Registrar of Companies, the institution which gathers information on any company registered in Cyprus
The application for the procedure can also be performed online, through the online platform available at the Registrar of Companies
The next step refers to the establishment of a legal entity prescribed by the local legislation. The investor will have to draw the statutory documents of the company, represented by the memorandum and articles of association. The procedure requires the assistance of a Cypriot attorney, as stated by the provisions of the Companies Law
The main documents of the company will be registered at the Companies Section of the Registrar of Companies Department
Further on, the business will need to register for tax purposes, social welfare and social insurance; our team of company incorporation consultants can assist in these procedures. 

Business license and permits in Cyprus 

Retailing businesses set up in Cyprus are required to receive business licenses and permits, issued in accordance with the specifics of their activity. For example, retailers which will provide alcoholic beverages will need a license attesting the legal right to sell intoxicating liquors. In order to obtain such a license, the investors will have to address to the District Administration Office.
