Letter from Mr. Costas Markides, KPMG Board Member

Acquisition of the Cypriot Citizenship by Investment 

On the 13th of September 2016 the Ministry of Interior proceeded with the third update in the last three years of the Cyprus Citizenship by investment scheme.

The scheme for the acquisition of the Cyprus citizenship by investment is in line with the main economic objectives of Cyprus, encouraging further foreign direct investments with the aim to attract high net worth individuals for their family’s relocation to Cyprus and the establishment of their business activities in Cyprus.

It is a fact that in the last few years alone, the sector of land development has attracted more than four billion euros of fresh money in Cyprus with positive repercussions on various other sectors of the Cyprus economy.

Cyprus tax residents who are NOT DOMICILED in Cyprus, that means they have not been Cyprus tax residents for 17 years out of last 20, by the July 16, 2015 tax legislation will now NOT BE SUBJECT to taxes on dividends, rental income and bank deposit interest on a worldwide income and income generated in Cyprus. This is indeed revolutionary!
