3. SHARE CAPITAL


 If a specified amount above, please enter it here

NOTE:  For a company which will not open any offices in Cyprus, the minimum issued share capital is CYŁ1,000.  In view, however, of the fact that the same stamp duty is paid upon incorporation of a company with an authorized share capital of CYŁ1-5,000, we suggest the incorporation of a company with a minimum authorized share capital of CYŁ5,000.  In the event the company will open offices in Cyprus, the minimum issued share capital is CYŁ10,000.
