Recently there have been new developments in the Cyprus tax legislation. A new law “domicile law” is now prepared which is similar to that of the UK and is expected to pass as a new law during the year 2015. The proposals under discussion relates to “non-domicile” individuals. Based on our understanding, individuals who are tax resident in Cyprus and also considered as “non-domiciled” in Cyprus would not be subject to special contribution for defense tax. In general, this would mean that the “non-domicile” individuals’ income from dividend and passive interest should not be subject to Cyprus taxation. However at present, we can not confirm the exact content and time frame for such proposals.
