The Ministry of Finance of Cyprus announced that an agreement has been reached between the Russian Authorities and the Authorities of Cyprus for postponing the application of the Protocol amending Article 13 of the Agreement between the Government of the Republic of Cyprus and the Government of the Russian Federation for the Avoidance of Double Taxation.  

The Protocol, which was signed on 7th of October 2010, provides for taxation of capital gains upon disposal of shares of companies deriving more than 50% of their value from immovable property, in the country where the immovable property is located.

In parallel, an additional Protocol is being finalised, providing for the application of the revised provisions of Article 13 of the said Agreement, until similar provisions are introduced in other bilateral Agreements for the Avoidance of Double Taxation between the Russian Federation and other European countries.
