Our establishment and business services for Cyprus and the United Arab Emirates include:  


Sincere consultancy with substance.

First and foremost stand our consulting services. During the consultation, we define with you your starting position and your needs and show you accordingly, which opportunities we can offer you.

The right solution depends on the situation of each client. With sensitivity to your concerns, we will propose a concept with which you can plan your business progress and asset protection effectively without concerns or hesitation.

Our consultancy does not end with the establishment of your business. You will still be accompanied by us and benefit from our expertise and experience in all relevant matters.

The foundation usually consists of the following services:

Resident Management Services 

Many of our clients wish for interim directors or permanent resident directors. We will be happy to provide interim management services, or propose professional management staff being resident of the respective country.

Should your company require the setup of a permanent establishment with adequate operational substance, including the employment of resident directors and possibly a company secretary and other staff, Shanda Consult will be happy to assist accordingly.

The choice as to whom you would like to appoint as a director for your company remains solely up to your own discretion. We will be available to offer our assistance in case that you wish us to do so.

Bookkeeping, Financial Statements and Auditing 

Depending on the legal status of your company and the level of pursued business activities, the need for accountancy services, minor or larger volumes, will arise for your company.

In addition to our establishment services in Cyprus and the United Arab Emirates, we will make sure that your company’s books will be kept up-to-date and all the obligations when dealing with tax authorities and where appropriate with other authorities will be fulfilled.

In both Cyprus and the UAE, bookkeeping is conducted according to the international book keeping standards (International Accounting Standards of the International Accounting Standards Committee (IASC), London).

We will be happy to arrange for financial statements of your company, as well as trial balances if required. The financial statements are prepared in cooperation with our independent auditors, as legally required.
