We can provide clients with a comprehensive Cypriot company search report and obtain copies of official documents on Cypriot companies from the Department of the Registrar of Companies.
Obtaining a Company Report in Cyprus presents the following problems:
Our representative has to go to the Registrar of Companies office at 07.00hrs to get a queuing ticket. If one is late the number on the ticket is unlikely to come up by the time the office closes at 14.30hrs and the procedure has to be started again the next day. The average waiting time is 5 hours. With Certified company documents we have to charge for the documents but, also a fee for our colleague waiting for the documents at the registry for long periods of time.
Using the phone for information is completely useless as they are rarely answered. The Cyprus House of Representatives conducted a monitoring programme of how many phone calls were unanswered by the Civil Service. They found that 187,000 unanswered in a single month of which 27,000 were missed by the Office of the Registrar of Companies.
Using the internet is again very difficult and it is a very cumbersome programme. Also only companies registered after 2013 are available. The only way to access the data is through an old version Internet Explorer, other browsers don't work.
The requested reports are usually obtained from the Office of the Registrar within 24 hours and can be copied by hand, photocopies you will have to wait up to a week for.
We can supply the following company documents from the Registrar of Companies, when available:
There are delays at the registry so copies of company documents can take 6 -9 days to be prepared.
A Cypriot company search will include the registration details of the company and contain the details filed with the Department of the Registrar of Companies.

There is a legal requirement in Cyprus that Limited (Ltd) companies must publicly submit annual accounts at the Registry, but in practice this is not the case. We can only provide Latest Director's Report & Accounts for a Cyprus company where they have been submitted by the company to the Companies Registrar, and the registry have filed them.
The Cyprus registry can also show company annual accounts as technically filed but, not actually available yet from the registry so, just pending. Accounts can show as pending for years after they were filed at the Registrar of Companies.
The search report will be ordered from the Cyprus Department of the Registrar of Companies and delivered by email in 5 - 6 days.

All companies in Cyprus are required to file an annual return with the Registry. On this document a register of shareholders must be included that details, amongst other information, shareholders names and their shareholding.
