Tax Return Time in Cyprus & UK for Expats Living and Working Abroad
This year sees a change in the way Cyprus Full Year Tax returns are completed and due dates.
Full Year paper returns now due also include a self assessment of income tax due. If a balancing payment is due then that is payable by 30/6/15.
A balancing payment may arise because of under estimation of tax paid in temporary returns, or a change in the exchange rate used for expat pensions.
As the Euro plunged on currency exchange markets last year many expats with overseas income may find a balancing payment now due.
ACTion on Returns
ProACT Tax Return Service is in full flow completing the returns for clients to ensue everything is in order and on time. We are asking clients to forward by email copies of income documents for verification to allow returns to be submitted and advice on any balancing payment made.
Submit on Time
The first deadline for paper returns was 30th April. As is the way this has been extended for a week to Friday 8/5/15. So last chance for paper returns in the next few days.
There is an online option to 31/7/15. Bizarrely the Balancing payment is still due by 30/6/15 - a month earlier. There is method in this paradox; because in practice the balancing payment is not overdue until the end of July.
Our view is get it done and be on time. ProACT can complete online returns for client. Again we need income confirmation emailed to us to allow us to prepare documents.
