Lanitis Golf Public Co Ltd brings that wealth of insight together in a world class team. Together, we have an unquestionable track record of success, a deep understanding of the local landscape and an appreciation of the global appetite for sustainable, exquisitely balanced living.
Limassol Greens is one of the largest masterplan developments in Cyprus, in the city of Limassol. AECOM, the world’s premier infrastructure firm, designed a masterplan that ingeniously sets the residential and commercial units in the centre of the resort development, surrounding them with golf greens and fairways on all sides. A luscious Green Belt runs through the heart of the resort creating a truly unmatched green landscape and a verdant environment for sustainable living.
Developed within an area of 1.4 million m2, Limassol Greens will boast an 18-hole Championship standard Golf Course with a state-of-the art Clubhouse, 500 villas and 250 apartments to be developed in phases, as well as retail and commercial facilities including shops, restaurants, bars.
In addition, the on-site Wellness Centre will provide residents access to spa treatment facilities, fitness areas, outdoor pool, yoga and meditation lawns, tennis lawns and basketball courts. Not forgetting the cycleways around the development, multiple children’s playgrounds an open-air amphitheater and herb garden.
The resort is sited adjacent to Limassol’s stretch of sandy beach Lady’s Mile and a choice of blue flag beaches with easy access to highways, villages, mountains, wineries and private schools. Limassol Greens also neighbours the largest casino resort in the Mediterranean, while the landmark superyacht marina and city centre are only a short 10-minute drive away.

We advise our Clients on a basis of recent international and European tax trends through legislation and case-law which determine how legally implemented tax structures may prove as an arrangement of one’s affairs in the most tax efficient manner.

Our expertise rests on the belief that tax advisors who attain a legal background may apply the relevant analysis and interpretation of applicable legislation to proposals regarding implementation of tax structures.

It is not a matter of how one may minimize their tax bill on an accounting basis, but how one may arrange their affairs in a manner in which a certain event does not fall within a taxable provision.

LEARN

The enactment of the DAC6 Directive and the inherent reporting obligations imposed on intermediaries has created a demand for customized training sessions being provided to them by tax practitioners.

If one accepts that “if you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough” by Albert Einstein, then let us teach you the implications and obligations arising as a result of the DAC6 Directive through interactive workshops which address the practicalities of the work undertaken by your firm on a daily basis.

ADVISE

Clients are frequently found in the daunting position of instructing a series of consultants whether these are accounting, audit, tax or legal advisers.

We do not purport to exercise all the above.  However, we engage in both advising and implementing our tax advice and opinions, therefore what we propose we carry out through to an implementation stage whereby the Client is shielded from an array of advisors and various jurisdictional deadlines.

– Tax Advisory and Opinions

– Tax Structuring and Implementation

– Trusts and Estate Planning
