Some of the changes expected in 2022 and beyond is the ratification of the Transfer Pricing legislation, the implementations of BEPS 2.0, and the so-called global minimum tax, as well as the introduction of green taxes, and a digitized tax department.

Taxpayers need a guide, such as EY Cyprus’ Tax Facts, to stay well-informed on the shifting tax landscape, especially those contemplating new markets. With this new edition of Tax Facts, we provide a high level, yet comprehensive, guide to the Cyprus tax system.”
