How to confirm your Non-Dom status?

A person who is a tax resident in Cyprus is liable to pay Cyprus Income Tax (CIT) on their worldwide income, from all sources.

Additionally, domiciled residents of Cyprus pay a Special Defense Contribution (SDC) on their passive income derived from dividends, interest, and rentals as per the following rates:

  • Dividends – 17%
  • Interest Income – 30%
  • Rental Income – 3% of the 75% of gross rental, effective rate 2.25%

The Non-Dom Status in Cyprus is a tax regime that enables non-domiciled tax residents to effectively reduce their tax obligations by exempting them from Special Defense Contribution (SDC) for a period of 17 years.

Consequently, these individuals -when receiving dividends – are not subject to any taxes at a rate of zero percent. Instead, they are solely liable for a contribution of 2.65% towards the General Health System, with a maximum cap of 4,770 EUR as payable contributions.

Obtaining non-domicile status involves acquiring a certificate from the Tax Authorities, a process that typically takes around three weeks following the submission of the application and all required documentation.
