    Bizserve Consultants Limited

    Bizserve Consultants is a leading administrative service provider in Cyprus, regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company was established in May 2002 but its presence in the fiduciary industry dates back to the mid 90’s at which time it was operating under a different umbrella of companies.

    The Company’s main line of business focuses on incorporating and managing entities, providing nominee and trustee services in Cyprus and other jurisdictions as well as catering to banking, office set up, staff recruitment and any kind of complementary requirements our clients may encounter whilst setting up their structures.

    Our team consists of professionals – lawyers, bankers, accountants – with extensive experience in servicing international clients, able to operate in any business environment and ready to give bespoke solutions to any inquiry. At the same time, we have an extended and reliable network of associates that adds value to the solutions offered to our clients.

    Services:

    International Tax Planning

    Over the last few years the international tax environment has been affected by the regulatory changes that underline the need for transparency. We, at Bizserve Consultants, strive to provide our clients with professional tax advice and proficient solutions to tax, estate planning and other commercial endeavors.

    Company Formation

    Our firm provides expert advice in setting up corporate structures and incorporating and managing legal entities based on our clients’ needs. Our services include:

    • Company Formation in Cyprus and other jurisdictions
    • Provision of nominee services – directors, secretary, shareholders – and trustee services
    • Provision of registered office
    • Secretarial and administrative services
    • Legal and fiduciary services
    • Banking services – opening and administration of bank accounts at Banks in Cyprus and abroad

    Banking

    Our Firm provides a range of banking and investments products, including:

    • Issuance of credit and debit cards
    • Setting up access to online banking services

    Provision of corporate offices

    The concept of ‘Substance’ is a cornerstone in today’s tax planning. The absence of substance can be considered from foreign tax authorities as double-tax treaty abuse thereby increasing the likelihood of a challenge against the tax residency of the Cyprus Company. Our Firm may assist in enhancing the substance of the company by analyzing the requirements and implementing tailor-made solutions. Within this context, we provide services which ensure that the company has physical presence in Cyprus.

    Office Rental – Fully-furnished office space at the heart of Nicosia’s Business Center
    Support Services – Provision of telephone landline, personalized telephone answering services etc.
    Staff recruitment – We can assist the company to find and employ qualified personnel for the Office in Cyprus.

    Services for the acquisition of Cyprus Citizenship

    The Cyprus Government in an effort to enhance the competitiveness of Cyprus implemented a flexible scheme for the acquisition of Cyprus Citizenship by Investment (CBI) that provides attractive incentives to Foreign Investors and/or Entrepreneurs.

    A non-Cypriot citizen who satisfies one of the four financial criteria set by the Government, either personally or through company/ies where he/she participates as a shareholder, either through investment made by his/her spouse or they have made together, either as a senior executive of company/ies, may apply for the acquisition of Cyprus Citizenship.

    For any further information and/or clarifications regarding our Firm and services, please contact us via the several contact options provided here in. Our personnel will be glad to assist with any inquiry you might have.
