  • Cyprus Implements ATAD

    In light of EU Anti-Tax Avoidance Directive (ATAD), the Cyprus House of Representatives on April 5, 2019 voted into law (applicable from January 1, 2019) the partial implementation of legally-anti-abusive measures. These measures include the ‘interest limitation’ rule, the ‘general anti-abuse’ rule, and the ‘controlled foreign companies’ rule. The rest two measures stipulated by the EU ATAD (exit taxes and rules to tackle hybrid mismatches) are expected to be implemented in Cyprus by 2020.
  • Pre-1995 Leases in Malta

    Recently, the Maltese courts may have possibly brought about the beginning of the end of a legal and social question concerning landowners who were, and still are, subjected to pre-1995 rent laws. The judgement given in  Anthony Debono et v. Avukat Generali et. , may prove to be a milestone in Maltese rent laws.
  • IS SILENCE GOLDEN? The added value of emergency media response plans

    In the words of  WARREN BUFFET:
  • Why Cyprus for Maritime?

    Recognizing the political, economic and social importance of shipping, as from 1963, Cyprus managed to develop the country into a fully-fledged shipping centre combining both a sovereign flag and a resident shipping industry, which is renowned for its high-quality services and standards of safety.
  • Changes to UK capital gains tax

    Since April 2019, the new rules regarding capital gains tax have been implemented in UK. The intention of the implementation of new rules is to remove the advantage of non- UK residents who did not pay tax over the gains from the disposal of all their property in UK.
  • Increase of Property Rents in Cyprus: Permissible and Non-Permissible Limits

    It has been many times that my clients have expressed the question as to when and how the rental amounts increase.  This question is voiced by both Landlords and Tenants of real estate.
  • Shipping at the spotlight of terrorism

    Is terrorism the new norm for shipping?
  • Adidas three stripe Trademark Revocation

    In a judgment of the General Court of the European Union of the 19th June 2019, Adidas saw their hopes of extending their three stripes trademark dashed, as the court ruled that there was no distinctiveness in the three stripes trademark. Furthermore, the court held that the Adidas had failed to prove that the mark had acquired distinctive character through use throughout the member states of the EU.
  • David against Goliath – Libra vs Central Banks: Who will win?

    Working in the crypto and DLT space is like being on an emotional rollercoaster with feelings which range from curiosity, excitement, euphoria, revelation, shock, disappointment, hope, wonder and determination – did I miss any?
  • UK Telecoms company fined £100K over unsolicited marketing messages

    The Information Commissioner’s Office (‘ICO’) which is the UK’s data protection supervisory authority, recently issued a fine of £100,000 to EE Limited, a telecoms company operating in the UK. The fine was issued in response to EE Limited having sent two and a half million unsolicited direct marketing messages to its customers, back in early 2018. The direct marketing messages were sent without EE Limited having first obtained the required consent to send them to its clients.
