Why Form a Company in Malta

The Malta companies act is modelled after the UK version, it basically sets out a very simple procedure that will quickly incorporate the company under the Maltese law. The entire process of a Malta company formation is designed to be quick and relatively easy.

Malta has strong economic ties with EU countries and also countries that are outside of the European Union - this is a great advantage when it comes to foreign investments. Malta has one of the highest levels of privacy protection. With a Malta company, business can be conducted internationally, with minimal changes required within the company.

Tax Information for your Malta Company Registration

A Malta company is exempt from any withholding taxes and stamp duty. When the distribution of profits from a Maltese Company are sent to a non-resident shareholder, the dividends can be sent without any restrictions and no exchange control restrictions apply. 

Malta has a favourable and competitive tax system, which has been the main reason for Malta’s success as a European financial services centre.

Individuals which are trading in or from Malta typically secure the lowest tax rates that are available within the European Union.

The amount of Malta tax refunds is set at 6/7 of the Malta tax paid by the Malta company. Therefore, the Malta company is subject to taxation at 35%, however, the shareholders are able entitled to claim back 6/7 of this tax.

For example, if gross profits amount to €100,000, the company would pay €35,000 in tax, but the shareholder would typically be entitled to claim back €30,000 in tax refunds.

To allow you to be able to claim back 30% of the corporation tax, the shareholders of the Malta company must not be resident in Malta. It does not depend on where the company director is located.

Company Name

When choosing a company name for a Malta company formation, you must ensure that all words within the name are in English. The name must end with a word, phrase or abbreviation, such as Limited or Ltd.

The company name must be unique and requires approval from the Registrar of Companies. If the company registrar feel that the company name is undesirable or offensive, they can reject the incorporation of the company.

Directors, Shareholders and Secretary

For a standard Malta company formation, a minimum of one director, one secretary and one shareholder is required, however, they do not need to reside in Malta and they can be corporate bodies.

To ensure the Malta company formation process is as simple as possible, we appoint a secretary during the incorporation period. Once the company has been incorporated, we then resign the secretary and appoint one of your choice. Alternatively, we can offer a nominee secretary.

Nominee director and shareholders are also permitted in a Malta company registration.

Share Capital 

The standard currency for a Malta company formation is Euro. We incorporate Malta companies with a standard share capital of 1200 Shares worth 1.00 Euro each.

Your Malta company formation does not need to have this share capital, we are able to amend this. However, please be aware that additional charges may occur from the Maltese authorities.
