Cyprus Branch


Cyprus Branch

The legal procedure of a branch registration
A branch of a foreign company may be registered in Cyprus under section 347 of the Companies Law, Chapter 113:
Under the Companies Law, Chapter 113, foreign companies may register a branch in Cyprus. The registration procedure is again essentially the same as for companies. However, as an additional requirement, every overseas company wishing to create a branch in Cyprus must file with the Registrar of companies, within one month of establishment the following documents:
  • Certified copy of the Memorandum and Articles of Association, or the charter or other instrument defining the constitution of the company.
  • Details of directors and secretary of the company.
  • Name and address of at least one person resident in Cyprus who is authorized to accept service of notices on behalf of the company.
With regard to the certification of the above documents, experience has shown that the documents must be legalized and “apostil” in the country of origin by a notary public. Alternatively, legalization is required both by a notary public and the Consul of the Republic of Cyprus in that country.
 
Branch Documents
In the case of international business companies and partnerships, it is advisable that the manager of the branch and the overseas company are provided - upon the registration of the branch - with a full set of documents, properly legalized and translated, where appropriate, into English or any other language.
In the case of a branch such documents normally comprise:
Certificate of registration
The charter of the overseas company or other instrument defining its constitution
List of directors and name of the person authorized to accept notices
Letter headings, invoices and other branch stationery
Any other information and documentation pertaining to the activities of the branch to the date of its establishment.

3.2 Requirements
Overseas companies may establish a branch in Cyprus by applying directly to the Department of the Registrar of Companies and Official Receiver, within one month of such establishment.
With regard to the certification of the above documents, experience has shown that the documents must be legalized and “apostil” in the country of origin. Alternatively, legalization is required both by a notary public and the consul of the Republic of Cyprus in that country.
 
3.3 Branch documents
As in the case of companies it is advisable that the management of the branch and the overseas company are provided, upon the registration of the branch, with a full set of documents, properly legalized and translated, where appropriate, into English or any other language.
In the case of a branch such documents normally comprise:
  • Certificate of registration
  • The agreement of the overseas company or other instrument defining its constitution
  • List of directors and secretary of the company, name of at least one person resident in Cyprus authorized to accept on behalf of the company any notices required to be served on the company.
  • Any other information and documentation pertaining to the activities of the branch and to the date of its establishment.
3.4 Effect of registration
By registering a Cyprus branch of an overseas company, no new incorporation is effected since there is an already incorporated company abroad which is simply establishing a place of business in Cyprus.
The name of the branch is the same with the name of the overseas company.
3.5 Annual Financial Statements
The branch must file with the Registrar of Companies, a certified copy of the balance sheet and profit and loss account of the parent corporation, translated into Greek.
