The United States is the third largest country in the world in terms of size and population. It borders the North Atlantic and North Pacific Oceans and shares land and borders with Canada and Mexico. The term “United States” includes the non-contiguous states of Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Northern Mariana Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam and American Samoa.

The United States is a federalist system. Federalism is a system of government in which power is divided between a national (federal) government and various state governments. In the United States, the U.S. Constitution gives certain powers to the federal government, other powers to the state governments, and yet other powers to both.

States have their own legislative branch, executive branch, and judicial branch. The states are empowered to pass, enforce, and interpret laws, as long as they do not violate the Constitution.

The federal government determines foreign policy, with exclusive power to make treaties, declare war, and control imports and exports. The federal government has the sole authority to print money. Most governmental responsibilities, however, are shared by state and federal governments and these include taxation, business regulation, environmental protection, and civil rights.

Business Activity
It goes without saying that businesses who invest in the United States will benefit from its many competitive advantages. The U.S. has one of the most open markets in the world, and the largest consumer market with a GDP of $20 trillion and 325 million people. It is consistently ranked among one of the best places to do business internationally for its overall competitiveness and ease of doing business.

About United States (Module Test)

The Republic of Cyprus is the third largest and third most-populated island in the Eastern Mediterranean. It is located south of the coast of Turkey, west of Syria and Lebanon, northwest of Israel, north of Egypt, and east of Greece. Its location at the crossroads of three continental zones act as a vital gateway to Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

While Cyprus has a population of 1.7 million people, over 2 million tourists visit the island each year to experience this “jewel of the Mediterranean,” which boasts pristine beaches, cuisine, climate, history, and the comforts of modern technologies.

Cyprus joined the EU in 2004 and the Eurozone in 2008, giving the country a greater competitive advantage. This, in addition to its attractive tax system, legal system, the infrastructure on the island, and high quality of life it has to offer are just a few reasons why Cyprus remains a popular option for international business. International corporations with substance in Cyprus can have access to more than 2,3 billion consumers within a 4 hours flight!

TAXATION

  • 65 Double Tax Treaties
  • 12,5 % Corporate Tax
  • OECD compliant
  • 0% Tax on Dividends
  • No withholding tax on dividends, interest and royalties paid from Cyprus
  • 50% of income from interest derived by a Cypriot registered company is exempt from corporate tax
  • Profits realised from the sale of securities are exempt from tax.

  • Any profits arising on the transfer of assets and liabilities between companies during a reorganisation plan are tax free.

With one of the lowest EU corporate tax rates at 12.5%, the tax system in Cyprus is one of the most attractive regimes in all of Europe. Its system is progressive, meaning that tax rates are higher based on income. Cyprus’s association to the OECD guarantees its adherence to the internationally agreed tax standards. Significant fiscal benefits exist for IP, royalties, dividends and interests and many more, all of which allow foreign investors to gain a competitive advantage on their overseas ventures.
