In Cyprus, an organization’s establishment documents and its yearly return must be filed in Greek; the same shall hold true to accounts when they are required for filing. Financial statements of the companies are to be prepared in accordance with the company law requirements in Cyprus.
To register a Company in Cyprus, an application has to be made to the Registrar of Companies for the approval of the Company’s name. Any name that is identical or similar to an existing name on the Registry or that implies illegal activity or royal or government patronage will not be approved. After the name of the name is approved, a Cyprus lawyer has to file with the Registrar the following documents:
- Memorandum and Articles of Association
- Form HE1 signed by lawyer in the form of an affidavit confirming the Memorandum and Articles comply with Cyprus Law.
- Form HE2 denoting the Company’s address
- Form HE3 denoting the Company’s first Directors
Once the Company is registered, the Registrar may, upon request, issue copies of the Company’s main documents:
- Certificate of Incorporation
- Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association, signed by the Subscribers of the Company
- Certificate, issued by the Registrar of Companies in confirmation of the Registered Address of the Company.
- Certificate, issued by the Registrar of Companies in confirmation of appointment of the Directors and Secretary of the Company.
- Certificate, issued by the Registrar of Companies in confirmation of the shareholders of the Company.
