In Summary:

CySEC has issued the Circular C559 on 31/03/2023 to inform the Cyprus Investment Firms (‘CIFs’) for the latest version of the Form QST-CIF, Version 10.

CySEC informs that to make the collection of information more efficient, the information requested in Form CA-CIF, has been integrated in this new version, Version 10, of the Form QST-CIF (the ‘Form’).

CySEC notes that the Form CA-CIF will no longer be collected.

The Form must be completed and submitted to CySEC by all CIFs that were authorised by March 31, 2023. In this respect, CIFs that were authorised by March 31, 2023, but have not made use of their authorisation must also submit the Form.

The deadline to submit the Form is by 15:00 hrs, Friday, 12/05/2023, at the latest. The Form must be successfully submitted electronically, via the CySEC’s Transaction Reporting System (‘TRS’). The Form is regarded as being successfully submitted to CySEC, only when a NO ERROR indication feedback file is received.
