We regularly advise clients on the impact in Cyprus of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), a US federal law that requires American citizens to report their financial accounts held outside of the United States. As a testimony to our industry expertise in this field, we were instructed by the Ministry of Finance to draft the decree implementing the intergovernmental agreement between the U.S. and Cyprus, and have also been appointed to advise on the Guidance Notes for the Cyprus implementation of FATCA.
Harneys’ Tax & Regulatory Practice revolves around providing essential tax support for the most complex corporate and financing transactions. Our team knows that accurately navigating relevant tax law is crucial to the success of any financial deal, particularly those that are cross border. We have taken a lead role in advising on restructuring implications of the Russian De-offshorization Law, including the expert panel participation in the live webinar of TaxLinked on the subject. Some of our other major clients include TCS Group Holding, Credit Suisse, European Bank of Reconstruction and Development and VTB Capital.
We regularly achieve our clients’ goals using our industry expertise in both Cyprus and other jurisdictions. The firm was newly listed in the Chambers Europe directory’s tax category as an “increasingly strong market player.” As a client, you will benefit from the wealth of professional experience among our tax law team, who are highly regarded in the industry both within Cyprus and internationally.
