Register a bar in Cyprus

In order to start the procedure of company formation in Cyprus, the investors should first decide on the legal entity under which they will carry their operations. Most of the businessmen in Cyprus register their companies as limited liability companies, but we mention that Cyprus provides several options in this sense and investors should choose in accordance with their investment plans and budgets. 

All companies in Cyprus are required to register with the Registrar of Companies, which will issue the approval on the company's trading name

With the assistance of a specialist, the investors should then draw the company's statutory documents. Later on, the company's documents mut be registered with the Companies Section of the Department of Registrar of Companies and Official Receiver. The institution will issue the Certificate of Incorporation, thus allowing the company to register with other relevant local authorities for taxation purposes

Businessmen who want to obtain a license in Cyprus must know that there are several criteria related to this subject. As a general rule, such licenses are awarded to both natural persons and legal entities and our team of specialists in company registration in Cyprus can offer more details on this matter.

At the time in which the application is made, the person should have already received a planning permit and a building permit and, at the same time, the manager of the bar should own an approval issued by the Cyprus Tourism Organisation
