Cyprus Trusts


Cyprus International Trusts benefit from important tax advantages, providing significant tax planning possibilities. Income and gains of an international trust derived from sources which are outside of Cyprus are exempt from all kinds of tax in Cyprus and no Cyprus estate duty is chargeable in respect of assets belonging to an international trust created in Cyprus.

Protection against high tax

In high tax jurisdictions it is possible to minimize tax on income/wealth by transferring property to a Cyprus International Trust. With a proper tax structure and the beneficial double taxation treaty network Cyprus has with many countries, the tax benefits of a Cyprus International Trust are significant.

Holding property that cannot personally be held

Under some laws a minor who is not of legal age may not be able to have property registered in his own name but the property can be held in a trust for the minor’s benefit.


A Cyprus international Trust can be set up to provide for a charity or other not for profit organization or simply to promote a worthy cause.

Protection of assets

Assets can be placed in a Cyprus International Trust to protect the assets and the interests of the beneficiary

Transferring of personal assets

For tax or other reasons personal assets may be transferred to a Cyprus Trust.

Investing in business overseas

For an individual who wishes to invest overseas a Cyprus Trust can be set up and the profits and dividends received from the overseas business may be not remitted to the country of his residence.


An individual who does not want to disclose ownership of a company for confidentiality purposes can do this by setting up a discretionary Cypriot trust to own the shares in the company

Estate planning

A trust is a useful tool which can be used for transfer assets to a beneficiary who would otherwise not be allowed any inheritance due to the laws of the country

It is important to note that all matters which relate to a Cyprus International Trust are determined in accordance with the laws of the Republic of Cyprus and the Cyprus Courts have jurisdiction.
