Company Formation and Structuring in Malta

The process of forming a new company in Malta can be finalised within a 48 hour window. That’s true of both brick and mortar business and online companies. Malta’s corporate tax rate is also the lowest in the EU, making it an attractive prospect to entrepreneurs. That being said, ensuring a quick and efficient process is contingent on a few factors. All the necessary documentation must be correct and filed in a timely manner, and each requirement established by Maltese law must be satisfactorily met. All new companies will require a Memorandum of Association (MOA), which must be registered with the appropriate authority. Once all the shareholders have subscribed, a certificate of registration is issued and the company is officially formed. A MOA will contain all the need to know information, such as the company name, address and the people behind the scenes. It should also specify the nature of the company and its purpose. The remaining details cover things like share capital and the judicial and legal representation.
