Cyprus stamp duty is levied on ‘documents’ (i.e. written agreements/contracts) relating to assets located in Cyprus and/or matters or things taking place in Cyprus. Stamp duty is calculated on the value of the agreement at 0.15% for amounts exceeding EUR€5.000 but do not exceed EUR€170.000 and at 0.2% thereafter with a maximum cap of €20.000 per stamp agreement. The person legally liable to pay such stamp duty (unless otherwise stated on the agreement) is the purchaser. The due date for such stamp duty payment is within 30 days from the day of the ‘signing’ of a document which is considered to be subject to stamp duty.
