The purpose of this Tax Alert is to provide information on how to make tax payments to the Cyprus Tax Department via bank transfers.

Α. PAYMENT GUIDELINES

Prior to making the tax payment, the tax payer should ensure that the payment is conclusive of the capital plus interest or penalties if any. Therefore, it is advisable to contact the tax consultant prior to making the bank transfer in order to ensure that all interest and penalties have been taken into consideration.

For the purpose of interest calculation the payment date is considered to be the bank transfer date to the Central Bank of Cyprus (value date). Any currency differences on payment will burden the tax payer

All bank transfer orders should include the following details:

  • Contact person in Cyprus (i.e. Audit firm/ Tax Consultant)
  • Tax Payer’s name, Tax Identification Number (TIC) and Address
  • Details of the taxes to be paid (i.e.Tax Year/Details of tax payment/Amount)

The Cyprus Tax Department (TD) should be notified (either directly by the tax payer or its Cyprus representative) as soon as possible and no later than one week from the date of making the payment by submitting the following documents:

  • Copy of the payment instructions
  • Completed self-assessment tax form for taxes paid

Upon payment, tax receipts will be forwarded to the tax payer.
