What documents are required for outsourcing your accounting and auditing services to FormationWise?

The management of your Cypriot company’s accounting and auditing process requires extensive skills and a number of documents due to the intricate and sometimes changing laws and regulations that apply to Cypriot companies. Here are some of the documents you’ll need for your Cyprus business in order to manage your finances, file your taxes or do an internal audit:

Auditing services in Cyprus

According to Cypriot legislation, firms that do business within the nation must undergo an audit of their financial records. The accounting records of the company must be maintained by the directors, who must also create the financial statements in compliance with International Accounting Standards requirements. These accounts must be audited by accredited accountants.

All Cyprus firms are required by law to undergo a corporate audit, which must be carried out by an accredited firm of accountants. During the audit, the auditors will determine if the financial statements fully portray the company’s activities for the given year. A team of certified auditors from Formationwise is available and prepared to handle your auditing duties in Cyprus.

Our auditors will provide their audit opinion which will be included in your company’s financial statements and will describe the financial health of your firm, after carefully examining your entity.

We will then create and submit your business’s tax return to the Cyprus income tax authorities based on these audited financial statements, ideally, before the 31 March that follows the calendar year, at which stage all company taxes must be settled to avoid penalties and taxes.

With our experience and knowledge, we strive to be the best in audit and assurance services. We look beyond the legally mandated yearly audit to provide assurance and in the end, independent counsel to each and every one of our customers.

We examine your systems and processes in more depth than just the figures to make sure they are running smoothly in a controlled environment. By carefully analyzing the transaction patterns that make up your business, we can get critical insight into the structure, markets, threats and opportunities that surround it. With this knowledge, we can then provide you with crucial information and assistance.

Mandatory reports required in Cyprus on an ongoing basis

Records and books

Companies formed in Cyprus must maintain accurate books of accounts at the registered office or another location chosen by the directors. Other than the directors and auditors, a company’s books and records are not accessible for general inspection. However, when reviewing accounts for tax or VAT reasons, the Inland Revenue as well as the VAT authorities have the right to seek the production of any papers. All amounts received and spent, as well as all sales and purchases, assets, and liabilities must be documented in the accounting records.

Yearly returns

Every company is required to submit an annual report that includes information on the capitalization of the business, mortgage information and details about the registered shareholders, directors and secretary. A copy of the annual financial statements must be attached to the yearly return, along with an auditors’ report and a management report when required must be included with the annual return. The paperwork submitted to the Registrar of Companies must be submitted and should be available for public review.

Financial statements for the year

All Cyprus-incorporated businesses are required to produce financial statements once a year and submit them to shareholders at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). They may be in any language, but a Greek or English translation must be submitted with the company’s annual report and lodged with the Registrar of Companies. The twelve-month accounting period should expire on any day that the directors choose. Financial statements must be produced in compliance with the Companies Law, Cap. 113, as well as the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) established by the EU and International Financial Reporting Standards released by the IASB. If no alternative date is specified, the accounting year end is assumed to be December 31.

Important accounting deadlines in Cyprus

VAT returns

VAT returns must be filed, and whatever VAT is owed must be paid, within one month and 10 days after the reporting period has concluded. If the due date occurs on a weekend or a public holiday, the filing and payment deadline is postponed to the next working day.

Tax returns

Companies must submit provisional tax on their annual income. This provisional tax payment is paid in two equal installments on the tax year 31 July and 31 December. A final balancing payment must be paid on or before 1 August of the next year on a self-assessment approach to bring the total tax payments to the sum really owed according to the tax return.

Financial statement

In the case of recently registered firms, the first financial statements and tax returns must be submitted within 18 months after establishment. Other Cypriot businesses are expected to provide audited financial papers by December 31st of the following year.

Annual return

Each company prepares an Annual Return once a year, which provides important information about the company as of the day it is prepared. The Annual Return is supplemented with the Financial Statements for the preceding fiscal year. The annual return, together with the financial statements, must be prepared up to date until the company's annual return date and must be submitted to the Department of the Registrar of Companies within twenty-eight (28) days after its drafting date.

All businesses are required by Cypriot Company Law to prepare their financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). National law now incorporates the implementation of EU Directives and Regulations. Regardless of the size of the firm, obligatory statutory audits are now required under the 2016 revisions to the Companies Law. Each year, financial statements must be prepared in accordance with IFRS as adopted by the EU and the requirements of the Cypriot Companies Law. All Cyprus companies are obligated to maintain accounting books and records that provide a true and accurate picture of their financial position and their profit or loss.

When taxes are levied on the same income by at least two different jurisdictions, this is referred to as double taxation. Taxation agreements should be reached in order to avoid double taxation. Cyprus, a reliable jurisdiction because of its adherence to EU laws, provides a vast network of double taxation treaties. Double taxation agreements in Cyprus are designed to safeguard businesses against the possibility of having their revenue taxed twice—once in Cyprus and again in the country where the parent company is based. Tax treaties ratified by Cyprus also protect international commerce and shield domestically incorporated Cypriot companies from unfair tax treatment.

All corporations are required to maintain records of all the minutes of the proceedings and annual general meetings of the company’s shareholders under the corporate compliance standards established by the Cypriot Commercial Law. Every Cypriot company is required to pay tax on its global revenue. According to the corporate compliance requirements, businesses are required to pay taxes on their company earnings, interests, royalties, rent and any other revenue earned from their operations. All businesses in Cyprus are required to abide by the 1996-enacted Anti-Money Laundering Law as part of their corporate compliance obligations. Companies in Cyprus are expected to abide by various administrative procedures and adopt special rules under this law, particularly financial institutions.

Companies doing business within Cyprus must have their financial statements audited, according to Cypriot Commercial Law. The accounting records of the corporation must be maintained by the directors, who must also create the financial statements in compliance with IAS requirements. Accredited accountants must audit these accounts. To clarify a company’s transactions, the audited yearly financial statements must be filed with the Cypriot Registrar of Companies. International Financial Reporting Standards must be followed while creating financial statements (IFRS).

All Cyprus companies, with the exception of small businesses, were formerly compelled to conduct obligatory statutory audits. The Law was changed in September 2016, and audits are now required for all registered businesses, regardless of size. The Auditors Law stipulates that audits must be conducted in line with the global standards for auditing that have been approved by the European Commission (EC). The Council of Ministers offers advice on whether ISA is applicable in Cyprus by the Cyprus Public Audit Oversight Body, which has been designated as the relevant authority and given the authority to impose audit processes or requirements.

The deadline for filing tax returns in Cyprus is April 30th, however, if the tax return paperwork is done online, the deadline may be extended until July. Cypriot workers are required to make both a statement of their taxable income and a request for deductions and allowances when filing their tax returns. Non-residents are only required to pay taxes on their global income if they have resided in Cyprus for at least six months. People who stay in Cyprus for less than six months must pay taxes on their local income. The Cypriot agreements that prohibit the application of the same tax twice will also benefit foreign nationals who reside on the island.

For international businesses operating in Cyprus that are tax-registered in their home nations, there is no VAT registration threshold. On the other hand, for EU VAT-registered enterprises selling goods online to clients in Cyprus, the threshold for VAT registration for distance selling is €35,000 per year. People who must register for VAT in Cyprus as well as those who are entitled to register voluntarily may do so by submitting an application for registration in the VAT Register together with the necessary supporting documentation that is requested by the VAT authorities. Formationwise can submit a VAT application for your business in Cyprus.

The Republic of Cyprus uses the euro as its official currency. You can also use other currencies like GBP, USD or Euros in your business operations since we provide processing solutions that handle multi-currency payments in a range of currencies. Simply email us the payment information from your customers and we’ll take care of the required currency conversions and make sure the right amount is sent to the right overseas account.
