Board of Directors' Resolutions

In Cyprus, a board of directors is required for all registered companies. The Companies Law (Cap. 113) specifies that a company must have at least one director who is a natural person, and this director is responsible for managing the company’s affairs. However, it is more common for companies to have multiple directors who collectively make decisions and oversee the company’s operations. 

The board of directors is responsible for setting the company’s strategy and direction, appointing senior management, ensuring compliance with legal and regulatory requirements, and safeguarding the interests of shareholders.

The board of directors’ meetings taken in Cyprus by the local management are of the vital importance for tax residency considerations of the company.
