Let our field experts help you to take advantage of the world’s first dedicated e-Money Enterprise Zone.
e-Money in Malta
Malta was the first country to launch a solid regulatory framework for standalone e-Money Institutions. The current structure has been developed specifically to support local and foreign interest in Malta’s financial services industry. The Maltese e-Money Enterprise Zone is the ideal European location for a host of e-commerce activities across a range of sectors. The area is legally enforced by Malta’s Electronic Commerce Act 2001, which has been built to support this constantly developing area of trade. In order to remain a competitive e-Money enterprise jurisdiction, Malta maintains relatively low start-up fees, a highly incentivised tax regime and an excellent reputation for Financial Services.
How AE Can Help
