In 2007, Cyprus implemented in its Companies’ Law, Cap 113 the European Directive 2055/56/EC which has introduced a uniform and simple framework for cross border mergers of limited liability companies.

The directive allows entities to restructure their groups on a cross border basis within the EU without negative tax consequences.

Following the implementation of the said EU Directive, Cyprus legislation allows for the merger of two or more EU member companies, and as a result Cyprus has become a popular destination for this purpose.

The law applies to the merger of limited liability companies formed under the law of a Member State, having their registered office, central administration or main place of business within the community, provided that at least two of these companies are governed by the law of different Member States.
