  •   Portfolio Investment
    The Cyprus Stock Exchange (CSE) is a regulated exchange where all transactions concerning corporate and public securities are carried out. Trading of shares by foreigners on the CSE is as easy as on any modern stock market. Foreign investors are subject to the same rules and regulations of the CSE as Cypriots or other EU nationals regarding capital distribution.

    Provided that the investment is in line with the CSE’s laws and procedures, investors may acquire up to 100% of the share capital of all Cypriot companies listed on the CSE, except companies operating in specific sectors, such as the banking sector.

    As far as the banking sector is concerned, no person, either resident or non-resident, may own directly or indirectly 10% or more of a banking company's share capital or voting stock without the Central Bank's approval.                              

    Non-residents only need to remit foreign funds to an account in their own name. A stockbroker is entitled to possess the necessary documentary evidence for the acquisition of shares.

          It is to be noted that profits gained from the disposal of securities listed on a recognized stock exchange are exempt from tax for all companies. Securities include shares, bonds, debentures, founders' shares and other securities of companies or other legal entities incorporated in Cyprus or outsite as well as options thereon.
