For chris&pam

I wonder if people can get into the Cyprus tax system by joining Taxisnet ?

As you say your wife has her TIC number .

“Applications for Registration and Authorisation / Withdrawal of authorisation can ONLY be made electronically.
During the week starting on 9th April 2018 the new online registration and authorisation / withdrawal of authorisation procedure is expected to become available.
Prerequisites for registration :
 You must have a Tax Identification Code (T.I.C.)
 A telephone number and e-mail address
 Unique Registration Number
Existing taxpayers will receive by post, at the correspondence address held in the Department’s registry, a letter with the Unique Registration Number (See Attached).
New Taxpayers will receive their Unique Registration Number during the registration procedure with the Department.”

A little late to this thread, sorry

We have tax codes as we own property and used to pay IPT (IIRC) but we are UK residents and UK tax payers.

Will we still need to do a 'declaration'?

I am trying to register for the 1st time, but having trouble changing the username & password. There seems to be no indication of the format required for each. Help please.

Actually, like most people on this forum I too was of the opinion that it is now mandatory for all Cyprus residents to submit a tax declaration for year ending 2019. However this is not so. I visited the tax office (just before lockdown) to ask when it would be available to file online. I was asked what my income was and was told as under the €19,500 it was not necessary. I said that I had been told it was mandatory from year ending 2019 and was told no, it had not been made mandatory.....maybe year ending 2020 she said !!

From the tax form itself , it is an obligation .
And this for 2018 never mind 2019

OBLIGATIONS
By virtue of Laws under administered by the Department:
1. In the case when your gross income, before any allowances and deductions, does not exceed €19500
you are obliged to
a) complete this Declaration for the year 2018 with the true and correct information regarding your income and to submit it:

23 October 2019

'The cabinet on Wednesday approved a bill aimed at bolstering the state’s tax collecting ability, including a provision mandating the submission of tax returns by anyone with an income''.

''The bill provides that everyone with an income must file a tax return irrespective of whether this is below the €19,500 tax-free threshold, Georgiades said''.

Thanks galexinda , interesting article . It mentions “ The bill will now go to the House of Representatives” , I wonder if it got passed ?

It also mentioned everywhere should be made to accept credit cards , I know one restaurant that will not accept them , I am sure there must be more .

I know two restaurants that do not accept card payments. But surely they will have to comply in the not too distant future. Maybe now is the time for them to change, so that they are not handling as much cash.. But... will tipping suffer when it is all card payments..

That's my point the lady in the tax office said it had not been ratified and therefore was not law for year ending 2019, and said possible next tax year (2020), she did ring upstairs to one of the senior tax officers, who came down to us and confirmed the same

As the personal taxation scheme is one way by which GESY contributions are collected it does make sense for Cyprus annual tax returns to be completed from 01 January 2019.

It appears I have been speaking to the same lady at Paphos Tax Office as sadie62 for the past 10+ years as she has always assured me there was no need for me to complete a Cyprus Tax Return even though I have been resident in Cyprus since 2004. However, at the last meeting she did tell me that the system was changing and she would review my situation next January when she had the new information.

Just tried to sort out this years tax but still no form on taxisnet. Also does anyone know anything about a form we have to submit to say we’re exempt from paying Gesy contributions.

Thank you for your help. I sent the email & got immediate response. Presume there is somewhere on the tax form for putting in our ref.no.

I understood it had to go to the Tax Office (not to Gesy) as the Tax Office will not know and will automatically charge you. Sorry if I am incorrect but perhaps worth checking.
