Cyprus provides opportunities for people to register companies they are interested in for both offline and online businesses. Established companies may also wish to expand by opening a company in Cyprus that will be operating online too. You only have to register the company before you can be allowed to operate. The benefit with forming a company in Cyprus is that it allows full ownership to foreigners apart from the fact that corporate tax rates are considerably low at 10% and this has attracted many individuals and corporations who wish to register Cyprus Company.

All companies in Cyprus require registration so do the online businesses. You can decide to make your application online but the information needed is more or less the same. You will be required to provide contact and company details as well as a summary of the activities the company is intended to perform. When it comes to the director details, specify whether it's an individual, corporate or nominee and the title to be used. You will also give the names and address information as well as the country of residence.

For the shareholders, the number of shares to be issued will have to be specified.

The whole process can be facilitated by an online solicitor especially if you don't want to go all the way to Cyprus to take care of it or when you are not sure how the system functions.

Since it is an online business, you should have a ready website from where you will be operating or where your clients can get you. The website will have the company name and address as well as the terms and conditions to be applied if sales are to take place over the internet. You will need a Cyprus business bank account too which will enable you carry out financial activities through the internet for your online business. The banking system in Cyprus is well established and this is probably because the area is popular with investors who will need banking.
