If you move to the South of Cyprus there are no difficulties in settingup in business if you are EU citizens (which I assume you are). As Cyprus is a member of the EU any EU citizen can start a business.Dear all
We are considering moving to Cyprus (undecided about North or South) and would like to know the rules and experience concerning self-employment. I am currently a Brit working as a massage therapist (my husband is a photographer) in France.
We look forward to hearing if it is straight forward to work in Cyprus or if there are any rules that would make it difficult?
Many thanks in advance,
It is wise to do it legally though, as in paying your taxes and social insurance as the social insurance is now gunning for anyone who tries to get aways with it. The penalties are severe if caught so it isbetter to do it properly from the word go.
The good thing is that if you are paying social you dont need to have private health insurance and also you will be entitled to retirement pension from Cyprus when the time comes.
