Shipping & Maritime Law

Cyprus is a well-established shipping centre in a very interesting geographical location at the crossroads of prosperous financial regions of three continents. The Merchant Shipping Legislation enacted on 1 January 2010, placed Cyprus in a very competitive position.

Cyprus plays an outstanding role as a leading ship management centre and will continue to strengthen its position in the world’s economy by maintaining and attracting its sound maritime infrastructure, favourable tax regime and competitive ship registration and annual tonnage tax rates.

The tax incentives combined with the aforementioned economic and strategic advantages, along with an excellent infrastructure, present Cyprus as the ideal choice for ship owners, charterers and ship managers.

The tax system is in full compliance with both the EU requirements and also within the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development requirements against harmful tax practices.
