New royalty privilege of Cyprus tax regime

New amendments to the Income Tax Act have come to effect since January 1, 2012 in Cyprus. They concern the taxation of income from any type of intellectual property (royalty). Now, the effective tax rate on such payments will not exceed 2%.

Apparently, Cypriot authorities understand that the efficient collection of taxes does not follow from increase in rates, but from their reasonable reduction.
