Searching the Business Register
The Registrar of Companies maintains a file for every business entity registered in the Republic of Cyprus where all the details that have been notified and filed with the Registrar of Companies are kept.
In 2015, and in the context of reforming the Department of Registrar of Companies, the physical files of all active at the time, organisations (i.e. ltd companies, business names, partnerships and overseas companies), registered with the Registrar of Companies were scanned. As a result, an updated electronic register has been created, directly accessible via electronic search.
Electronic search in the business entities register
You may conduct an electronic search in the file of a company, business name, partnership or an overseas company by typing its name or its registration number.
Once you have identified and selected the business entity of your interest you, the following basic information is accessible free of charge:
- Organisation name
- Registration date
- Organisation type
- Organisation status
- Registered office address of company
- Name of current directors and secretary/partner/owner of business name
- Preview of pending services for filing to the register
- Preview of documents filed
- Last annual report filing date
Additionally, upon payment of a ten euro (€10) fee, you may conduct a detailed search in the electronic file of the business entity of your choice, wherein all historic data filed with the Registrar of Companies is kept, starting from the business entity's registration date and up until the search date.
The details available through the electronic search are set out below, as per business entity:
