Meridian Trust - Corporate and Fiduciary Services, provides a comprehensive range of company registration services, tax-planning and related corporate services for companies that wish to operate in Cyprus as well as in other offshore jurisdictions.
With every possible loophole being closed and more and more draconian tax measures being imposed all the time, the need for companies and individuals to minimize their potential tax liabilities has never been greater. But not if it entails taking steps that risk compromising the integrity of the business, or will eventually prove illegal.

By choosing Cyprus, which is a member state of the EU (European Union) for your company location — and using our fiduciary services — both of those very unpleasant possibilities are eliminated. Setting up a Cyprus-based company will provide you with a legitimate and highly respectable overseas presence that will stand the test of time. With expert tax planning and efficient tax structures in place, an IBC can also substantially reduce your corporate tax and personal tax liabilities.

Although some businesses have the knowledge and resources to set up an IBC without assistance, engaging professional help in the form of tax professionals and company lawyers — and having people on the spot to expedite the whole process — saves you time, money and stress.

We've been helping businesses and their advisers form companies and provided expert advice on the establishment and implementation of complex cross-border tax planning arrangements for more than a decade.

Many corporate law firms, business consultants, financial advisers and other intermediaries from all over the world entrust us to hold assets on their behalf knowing that those assets are being managed solely for the benefit of their clients. Unlike ordinary and unqualified company formation agents, our practising business lawyers, tax professionals and auditors are required to adhere to the strict codes of conduct and ethics imposed by their governing bodies.

Although we are based in Cyprus, through our network of business consultants, lawyers and tax professionals we are able to provide company formation and tax planning services across many jurisdictions including the British Virgin Islands, Seychelles, Belize, St Vincent, Bahamas, Cayman Islands and others.

At Meridian Trust the right hand always knows what the left hand is doing. When you want action taking, you only have to tell us once. You'll have a dedicated case handler who will stay with you from start to finish.

On those occasions when you need to speak to one of our company lawyers or tax professionals, he or she will have all the background they need to provide you with fully informed answers to your questions. Another point of difference is that we are very willing to work with third parties including tax lawyers, accountants, bankers and business consultants.

So nobody has a better understanding of the situation from your perspective — or what you're looking in terms of service and value for money — than we do. Put us to the test and you'll see what we mean. And once your IBC is set up, our team of accountants, bankers, lawyers and tax professionals will help ensure you extract maximum financial value from the arrangement.
