In Cyprus, around EUR 485 million is projected to be invested in the farming industry, as well as the rural areas through the CAP (the Common Agricultural Policy) between the years 2014 to 2020. The farming industry has always been a crucial sector in the economy of Cyprus.
Just like all across the European Union, farmers in this country have to abide by certain “greening” regulations. Our Cyprus company formation consultants can assist you to establish a Cypriot agricultural business.

Becoming an agriculturist in Cyprus
If you wish to become an agriculturist in Cyprus, you will have to register with the Council of Agriculturists and therefore obtain the appropriate license. Our experts in company formation in Cyprus can give you more details about this license.
However, citizens of the European Union and legal persons who reside in a Member State and wish to offer their services temporarily or circumstantially in Cyprus do not have to register and obtain the above-mentioned license.
In these cases, they have to inform the Council and will be registered in the Special Registry of Agronomists who Provide Services. Our company formation advisors in Cyprus can provide further details on this matter.
