Malta is a well-regulated EU jurisdiction boasting an attractive tax regime and an open market economy, meeting the demands of the global market and succeeding over the years in establishing strong and long-standing links with Europe and North Africa, through a liberal foreign investment policy and double taxation treaties with forty-eight countries.
Maltese law provides for several forms of corporate entities, the most frequent form is by far the limited liability company, which may have the status of a public or private company. Furthermore, private companies may be either exempt or non-exempt. Companies may have multiple activities including those of a ‘holding’ and ‘trading’ nature. The Companies Act (Chapter 386 of the Laws of Malta) provides for a straightforward and cost-effective process with respect to company registration and maintenance.
