This is mandatory if you do not want the police to tow away your car.
You can pay your car tax at your local department of road and transport and you can also pay it at certain banks and online via the internet.
It is optional to buy one year or only six month’s car tax to renew again in another six months.
Please remember that you must also have valid Insurance and MOT to be able to renew your car tax.
If you do not renew your car tax your insurance will be deemed invalid and you will not be insured to drive.
If you are not planning to renew your car tax you must advise and show a certificate at the department of road and transport.
You will have a certain amount of time to renew your car tax but we advise you do this now rather than put it off and forget.
The new changes in law are that you no longer present your road tax in the front window of your car. Do not see this as an excuse as the police now have more power to pull you over and if you have no tax they will definitely tow away your vehicle.
Be safe rather than sorry and renew your car tax!

How to Sign my Proerty Contract of Sale in Cyprus?
It is mandatory for you to appoint a Cypriot Lawyer when purchasing land or property in Cyprus.
Your Cypriot lawyer will go through your contract of sale with a fine tooth comb and leave no stone unturned.
Your lawyer will make sure your contract of sale is in your favour and fully protects you and your investment to the maximum.
Your Cypriot lawyer will not let you sign any agreement until it is perfect for you!
Once you and your lawyer are happy with the contract and all documents have been signed, you are fully protected and the developer must deliver your investment in accordance with all details stipulated within the signed contract of sale.
This relates to you the purchaser also. All your obligations must be fulfilled in accordance with the Contract of sale.
Now you/purchaser and the developer/seller are legally bound by the Contract of Sale!
Contact our expert property law department for all your property investment requirements.
Please do not sign any documents without your Cypriot lawyer present.
Although your Cyprus Will is very important, unfortunately you must be present at your Cyprus lawyers to sign.
It would be fantastic if there was another way of achieving this but there is not.
Your signature must be witnessed by 2 members of staff who will also sign your Will. If it is not witnessed the Will is void.
Your signature must also be signed over 2 EU stamps which must be shown exactly to you. If the signature is not exact it will be deemed void hence the whole Will is void. The stamps cost €17 plus each and if not signed correctly can work out very expensive.
Therefore a visit to your Cyprus Lawyer is we have to say mandatory.
However, it is more than worth the knowledge that your assets are safe and secure.
Our probate department will put you entirely at ease and guide you through every step of making your Cyprus Will.
Do not put off this vital matter, it is one of the most important steps you will take after making your Cyprus investment.

How To Cyprus Will – What happens if I don’t have a will in Cyprus?
This is a very important issue to consider if you have not already made your Cyprus Will.
Unlike in the UK your assets and life savings are not automatically passed to your spouse or next of kin.
The Cyprus Law is slightly different with regards to probate matters.
Under Cyprus Law, only 25% will be passed to your spouse and the remaining 75% is passed to your children or your immediate family in equal shares.
If you are resident in Cyprus this will also account for any cash you have outside of Cyprus.
So, as you can see it is very important that you consult with your Cyprus Lawyer regarding your Cyprus Will.
