Royalty/Licensing Companies

These types of companies are used by owners of trade marks or patens. Where a physical or legal person is the owner of a trademark or patent, that person may register a company in Cyprus and transfer the ownership of that trademark or patent to the Cyprus Company.

The company then enters into a Licensing Agreement with other companies which may need to utilise the company's trademark or patent. All royalties or license fees received by the Cyprus Company enjoy special tax treatment depending on the country from where the royalty or license fee is received and whether that country belongs to the network of countries which have signed Double Taxation Treaties with Cyprus.

Our Firm can advise, prepare all relevant agreements and registered and maintain the Royalty/Licensing Companies. Our broad experience, knowhow and expertise in this field of practice have assisted and may assist investors when contemplating the setup of their structures.
