The Cyprus Tax Department has issued a circular (EE 33 dated 29 January 2019) giving guidance on the tax residence provisions for individuals introduced by Law 119(I)/2017. With effect from the beginning of 2017, individuals who are physically present in Cyprus for one or more periods amounting to at least 60 days during a tax year will be deemed to be tax resident in Cyprus as long as they meet all of the following conditions in respect of that tax year:
The circular makes clear that an individual who holds office as a director of a Cyprus tax-resident company and delegates this office to an alternate or nominee director at any time during the tax year does not satisfy the third condition and does not qualify for Cyprus tax residence under the 60-day rule.
