I think you have to start with the P85 from the U.K. , then you get a double taxation individual form , which you fill in and hand to the Cyprus tax office . You have to put a stamp on which cost about 70Ä .

Correct, the procedure used to be a P85 to declare you've left then a DTI stamped by the tax office to say you were resident in Cyprus for tax. I'm pretty sure I didn't pay for a stamp, I did it myself but it's 15 years ago.

I'm a financial adviser working in Cyprus for the last 15 years. If you reside in Cyprus for more thyan 183 days you have to register as tax resident.


Has it been like that all the time or is that the change kicking in as of this year the article I linked above is talking about? In other words: should I worry about being fined for not having registered in the past.


Hi Jeba

It has always been the case. There are many Brits living in Cyprus who are under the impression that they can chooses to pay tax where they want. The local tax officers would look at the income the person trying to register has and then tell them not to bother if it's below threshold. If that person subsequently dies, owns property and has no tax records, it can delay the issue of probate significantly as all tax affairs have to be up to date before the probate is issued.

As Gazzaga says. You fill in the form from the UK and take it to the Cypriot tax office. It is the Cypriots that sent the form to the UK.. or at least that is how ours was done..

Assume you have to actually go into tax office in road by hospital. Be so much easier if could at least do the registration online.
Iím not that bothered about going & sitting waiting for a long time if was just me but know husband will be moaning
Now that tax returns are done online surely would make sense to register online


Phone the uk tax office first and get it sorted that end first. When your husband received his pension with the tax code NT then start with the tax office here. Donít forget cyprus tax year begins Jan until Dec. I usually submit my husbands info in March and pay but that is for the previous year. Hth


Tilly Mint this is inaccurate information. The process has to be initiated in Cyprus.


We were advised by the uk tax office to start the process with them.
