Registration of a Cyprus Company


Time Frame

The formation and registration procedure normally takes eight to twelve working days. It usually takes two to three days to obtain approval for the company name and another five to eight days are needed from the submission of the required forms and documents to the Registrar of Companies. The exact time frame depends always on the workload of the Registrar of Companies.

For those clients that wish to save time and they have no special naming or shareholding structure requests, we have a number of ready-made (“Shelf”) companies which are available for immediate use.
