A “nominee shareholder” is the legal owner of the shares of a company. The nominee is obliged to hold the shares for the benefit of the beneficial owner and act under his instructions. A Trust Deedis signed between the beneficial owner and the nominee shareholderwho secures the rights of both parties. Our firm discloses the name of the beneficial owner only to the Bank. Neither our firm, nor the bank will share this information with any governmental or other institution. Exception to this rule is only in case there is a disclosure order by a Cyprus court.
According to Cyprus law, it is obligatory that every company must have a company secretary and a registered office address in Cyprus. From a tax planning point of view it is important that the company is managed and controlled in Cyprus. Accordingly it is recommended that the majority of the directors appointed are Cyprus residents. As a result, the company will be a Tax resident in Cyprus and utilize beneficiary the Cyprus Double tax treaty network and the Cyprus low tax rates.
