If your intention is to open a company in Cyprus, as well as open an account in Cyprus, then, according to experts from YB Case, you will need a non-resident firm. A Cyprus company will be a tax resident of the island, if it is managed and controlled in this jurisdiction. Such a firm is a taxable structure with a rate of 12,5%.
