The Cyprus VAT Association (CYVA) was established in 2019 with the aim of providing a unified and independent voice to all professionals and businesses in Cyprus on Value Added Tax (VAT) matters.
Its main objectives are to promote VAT, legal and related matters with the Government, the House of Parliament and the Tax Department for the purpose of adopting and implementing them. Also, to contribute to the proper adoption of VAT European Directives and Regulations, to help modernise and simplify the Cyprus VAT legislation, and to liaise and consult with the European Commission and other international bodies on Cyprus VAT matters.
Another important purpose of the association is to educate its members, professional bodies, and state and non-governmental organisations on VAT matters and to serve and safeguard the public interest in matters of indirect taxation.
Eligible for membership with the Association are businesses in Cyprus such as law, accounting and audit firms, corporate and administrative services companies, local and international business companies, as well as self-employed persons.
Welcome to the Cyprus VAT Association’s website.
The seven founding members of CYVA, being lawyers, accounting and audit firms have one common characteristic. We all deal in great extend with VAT matters, both on VAT advising and compliance areas, and we all agree that there is a communication gap between VAT professionals and businesses with the government, the Tax Department and lawmakers. Our main aim with the establishment of CYVA is to act as a bridge to eliminate this communication gap.
CYVA also aims at contributing to the proper adoption of VAT European Directives and Regulations, to help modernise and simplify the Cyprus VAT legislation, and to liaise and consult with the European Commission and other international bodies on Cyprus VAT matters.
All businesses and professionals in Cyprus, such as trading and construction companies, importers, consultants (law, accounting and audit firms, architects, engineers and administrative services providers) whether local or international businesses, as well as self-employed persons, are invited to join us.
