Cyprus Tax Rates

Cypriot companies are taxed at a rate of 10% and 20% for a company’s immovable property assets. Moreover, certain actions are not subject to tax, such as the sale of immovable property and income from interest and dividends.

VAT is normally charged at 19% but this rate is reduced to 8% for hotel services, taxis and buses, and 5% for gas, newspapers, books and pharmaceutical products.

Personal income tax is progressive and is levied in accordance with the following table:

Personal income (EUR) Tax rate
0 to 19,500 0%
19,501 to 28,000 20%
28,001 to 36,300 25%
36,301 and above 30%

Reducing the amount of tax to be paid is possible since deductions are allowable for donations to charities, rental income, insurance and life insurance contributions and premiums.
