Insight from AE
Company Formation and Structuring in Malta
Malta’s corporate tax rate is the lowest in the EU, making it an attractive prospect to entrepreneurs. Clients looking to set up a company in Malta will first be required to engage in an initial consultation with a company who understands the Maltese landscape. This is in order to determine whether or not the country is a suitable home for the operation. The next step is to refer to a team of lawyers who will provide insight as to the best way to structure the company. Once this structure has been agreed, all that remains is the fulfilment of unavoidable bureaucracy and due diligence. All the necessary documentation must be correct and filed in a timely manner, and each requirement established by Maltese law must be satisfactorily met. Every new companies will require a Memorandum of Association (MOA), which must be registered with the appropriate authority. At this point, assuming all the boxes have been ticked, the formation of the company can be finalised within a 48 hour window. It’s completed once all the shareholders have subscribed, and a certificate of registration is issued.
