SDC is a tax imposed on certain types of income, including interest, for Cyprus tax residents. Currently, interest income is subject to a 30% SDC, though this rate can change, and certain exemptions may apply.

The GHS, implemented in 2019, is a national health insurance scheme funded by contributions from different types of income, including interest.

Entities that pay interest income, such as banks and financial institutions, often have a responsibility to withhold SDC and GHS contributions at source. This involves the deduction of the relevant percentage of SDC and GHS contributions before making interest payments to the beneficiaries.

These withholding agents are also required to declare these deductions to the Cyprus Tax Department. This declaration is crucial to ensure compliance with Cyprus tax law.
