We can hold shares in trust for the benefit of the client and deal with or dispose of the shares, as the beneficial owner shall instruct. We ensure that the personal information of the beneficial owner is not disclosed under any circumstances, unless it is required to do so by the Courts or as part of an investigation into certain specific criminal activities.
We can provide a registered office address together with any required facilities in the desired country of incorporation, as required by law.
Every Cyprus company must have a secretary who is responsible for maintaining the company’s statutory registers and records in accordance with the standards imposed by the laws of Cyprus.
