International Trusts Law

The new Law is only applicable in the case of non-residents and for all intended purposes, non- residents are not only individuals that are not permanent residents in Cyprus but also international companies and international partnerships.

The most important provisions of the Law are summarized as follows:

Definition of International Trust

The Law defines the international trust as the trust of which:

  • The settlor is not a permanent resident of Cyprus
  • No beneficiary other than a charity is a permanent resident in Cyprus
  • The trust property does not include any real property situated in Cyprus
