Cyprus is a renowned maritime centre offering numerous benefits and advantages for the shipping companies and/or clients who choose to establish their business and/or manage their operations from Cyprus.
One of the main benefits of a Cyprus shipping company lies in its distinct tax treatment. Unlike other businesses in Cyprus, which are taxed at a 12,5% tax rate on their earnings, ship-owing companies, ship management companies and certain types of chartering companies, if they meet certain prerequisites, may opt to be taxed under
the Cyprus tonnage tax system.
