A Cyprus Offshore Company is a company which does not do business in Cyprus. It is widely used by international investors to carry out their business through Cyprus but not in Cyprus.

It is a private limited liability company.

A Cyprus Shelf Company is a ready made company. A company off the shelf. It can be used by investors who are in a hurry to sign a great deal, or to take advantage of a legislation which may be on the way out. A Cyprus Shelf Company has Directors, Secretary, Shareholders appointed. So if you prefer to be one of those positions yourself a change has to be made. A shelf company does not offer you more speed if you want to be appointed yourself Director or Secretary or Shareholder because the changes require a minimum of 15 days. A new company can be set up in about 6 days. However a Cyprus Shelf Company can be used to sign a big contract immediately and after you can make the changes you want. A shelf company if it is older than a couple of years will normally cost you more than a new Cyprus IBC because you will have to pay 490 Euro per year for renewal fees to the registrar.
Any physical person of age and any legal entity irrespective of nationality can own a Cyprus Shelf company. A company in Cyprus is also called an IBC, or Cyprus IBC which means a Cyprus International Business Company. Follow this link if you want to read more about a Cyprus IBC.
The most common Cyprus company used is a private limited liability company limited by shares, and of course as the name suggests it is of limited liability. That means that its members ( the shareholders) of the company are only liable to the extent of the value of the shares they own in it. The creditors cannot confiscate the personal assets of the shareholders to satisfy debts of the company.
Types of Legal Entities in Cyprus
If you want to read more about company formation and the Cyprus company generally Cyprus Company Incorporation is a very interesting article full of technical information.
Our Firm will provide you with the services of qualified, professional and honest Nominee Director and Secretary to satisfy the legal requirements of your company and to enable you to benefit all those tax advantages when your company is tax resident.
A Cyprus company can have as many directors it needs. The minimum is one director. There is an answer to all your questions. Let’s take them one by one. Any male or female person of sound mind and of age, who has not declared bankruptcy, can be appointed to act as a nominee of any company in Cyprus.
The directors can exercise all the powers as those are provided for by the memorandum and articles of association on the Cyprus company registration!
A Cyprus company can have 50 shareholders maximum and one minimum. A nominee shareholder is usually appointed to provide confidentiality for the real owner of the company. He is a person whom we will use to be the shareholder, in each case that the beneficial owner needs to keep his anonymity. This person again, is one who is closely associated with our firm, and the real owners are persons of the utmost trust, integrity and honesty.
A Secretary is appointed as required by the Company Law. A company can have one or more secretaries. Here again, the same questions can be asked for the nominee secretary, as for the other nominees. Again for confidentiality reasons a nominee secretary is appointed. A nominee secretary does not have many. A nominee secretary`s participation in the day to day and the serious running of the business is minimal and peripheral. His powers are formal.
