VAT & TAX in Cyprus
OUR TEAM MAKES SURE TO HELP CLIENTS BY REVIEWING THEIR VAT SYSTEMS AND HELP DEVISE THE APPROPRIATE STRATEGIES TO MITIGATE FUTURE ERRORS AND REDUCE RISKS.
Value Added Tax
Non-compliance with VAT regulations can be costly and the fines for failure to comply with the legislation may result in excessive penalties. McMillan Woods Cyprus makes sure to help clients by reviewing their VAT systems to determine their effectiveness. If these are found to be lacking, we help devise the appropriate strategies to mitigate future errors and reduce risks.
VAT Returns And Registration
Trading companies engaged in general trading may register with the VAT authority in Cyprus which when trading within the European Union is mandatory. Registration is compulsory for businesses which have a taxable turnover from the supply of goods in Cyprus in excess of €15,600 during the twelve preceding months.
Our expert team assists clients with:
- VAT registration
- VAT investigations
- Completions and submission of VAT returns.
Intrastat Returns And Registration
In addition to VAT returns, companies trading in Cyprus may be required to complete statistical reports, ‘Intrastat’, on the movement of goods across the national borders. This can include both sales to other companies, but also the movement of goods by the same company.
We assist our clients with:
- Intrastat Registration
- Preparation and submission of Intrastat forms.
VIES Returns And Registration
V.I.E.S. declarations are necessary for the supply of goods and services between EU Member States. VAT registered traders involved in the supply of goods and services have reported responsibilities in the form of submitting a V.I.E.S return. This enables traders to check the validity of VAT registration numbers of their customers and detect the unreported movement of zero-rated goods between Member States.
Our team assists our clients with:
- VIES Registration
- Preparation and submission of VIES returns
