Fintech and the Cyprus Tax System

ΠΕΡΙΓΡΑΦΗ

As FinTech investments can give rise to a range of taxation issues and opportunities it is important that tax is considered up-front as part of the FinTech strategy. Although not originally designed with FinTech companies in mind, even today, it is often necessary to apply “old world” tax law to the new world economic and business models that arise in a FinTech context.

In addition to managing tax risks, avoiding double taxation, and establishing your FinTech investments in a tax-efficient way, it is also important to be aware of the changes to the international tax system and how intellectual property and cross-border technology-related business models are taxed.

The aim of the seminar is to train participants on the basic principles of the Cyprus Tax Legislation and the more specific aspects of the Cyprus tax system for Fintech business.
