  • Identify your shareholders: The laws governing Cyprus company formation, stipulate that there must be at least one registered shareholder.
  • Appoint directors: There must be at least one director — directors can be of any nationality.
  • Decide on a secretary: Companies formed in Cyprus must have a company Secretary.
  • Establish your registered office: Every company formed in Cyprus must have a registered office in Cyprus.
