The level of privacy in Cyprus is similar to many other offshore jurisdictions around the world.
Directors, shareholders, and the company secretary names and personal information must be filed in the company registration with the Company Registrar in Cyprus. It is important to note that Cyprus allows a nominee director and a nominee shareholder to be appointed. This ensures that anonymity of the beneficial owners may be retained.
The only time the beneficial owners’ information must be revealed as per local law is if and when an offshore company in Cyprus also wants to open an offshore bank account in Cyprus as well. As discretion is also of the utmost importance to the banking industry, this information will never be divulged to a third party or a government unless there is a criminal investigation and the beneficial owner is legally required to submit via a subpoena.
Ways an offshore Cyprus company remains confidential:
- Directors’, shareholders’, and the company secretary’s names and personal information must be filed in the company registration in the Company Registrar in Cyprus
- Nominee directors and shareholders services can be used.
