What does Non-Dom mean?

Foreigners who relocate to countries such as Cyprus, Malta, Ireland or the UK and take up residence there and set up their business are known as "Non Domiciled", or"Non Doms" for short.
The prerequisite for this is that the father of the entrepreneur is not born in the same country. For this reason, the birth certificate or identity card of the father is also requested when the limited company is formed.

The Non-Dom status in Cyprus allows an entrepreneur to enjoy clear tax advantages; for example, a person living in Cyprus with NON-Dom status pays only 12.5% capital tax, 0% tax on dividends or share profits and no tax on his salary, provided it is less than 19,500 euros per year. In order to achieve non-dom status, one must deregister oneself and one's company in Germany, move the center of one's life to Cyprus, establish a limited company in Cyprus and register by means of a yellow slip. A tax law firm in Cyprus helps one with all processes and official applications.
