Company registration in Malta

Launch and supporting projects in a turnkey manner

The strategic location in the center of the Mediterranean, membership in the European Union, English-speaking work ethic, and competitive tax system, which allows avoiding double taxation, have made Malta company setup a preferred choice for many entrepreneurs.

Malta company incorporation is done through a Memorandum and Articles of Association (M&A), which are submitted to the Registrar of Companies along with all relevant documentation. This may include certificates and declarations of authorized persons, certified copies of identity documents, and bank deposit advice as evidence of paid-up share capital.

Whatever corporate establishment you may need — be it a holding, trading, financial, investment, or other activity — Malta can offer solutions to meet your requirements, while SBSB Fintech Lawyers specialists help implement them quickly, comprehensively, and without risks. The cost of registering a company in Malta here may vary depending on the package of services.

Benefits of Malta Business Registration

To date, Malta has signed up to 70 agreements that allow for the avoidance of double taxation. The corporate tax rate in Malta is fixed at 35%, however, the tax refund system allows it to be reduced to:

  • 5% for trading firms,
  • 0% for holding companies.

Licensed shipping companies, for example, that operate and own tonnage tax ships in Malta, can be exempt from taxes.

In addition, Malta company setup can provide interesting opportunities for creating an optimal corporate structure. Many investors when registering a firm in Malta choose the option of creating a public limited liability company (Societas Europaea). Since Malta is part of the EU, such a business incorporation option allows you to operate in the EU without having to comply with the laws of each member state and also get an “SE” company number instead of “C.”

The share capital must be no less than €1 200. SBSB Fintech Lawyers specialists will be happy to advise you and help fulfill all necessary conditions so that your company registration in Malta is as advantageous and trouble-free as possible.

Who Is Eligible to Open Company in Malta

A public or private limited liability company can be registered by the shareholders and their authorized representatives — providers of corporate services with the appropriate license. Entrepreneurs and investors wishing to conduct business in Europe and choose firm registration in the EU use the services of SBSB Fintech Lawyers due to the individual approach and comprehensive project support. 

Malta company formation cost, as well as the fees paid to the Registrar of Companies, are calculated depending on the share capital of the company and the chosen registration format (in person or remotely). In the case of opening a private company, when signing the Memorandum, it is necessary to pay 20% of the nominal value of the shares, and in the case of a public company, no less than 25%.

If all necessary documentation and information for company formation are provided to the Registrar upfront, the entire process can take up to 3 weeks from the moment the documents are received. To conduct business activities in Malta, you will also need to have your legally registered office in Malta. After all procedures, the data is entered into the Beneficial Owner Register Malta, public access to which is currently suspended. 

Procedure of Malta Business Registration

If necessary, Malta company register online is also possible, however, it cannot be processed fully remotely, as some original documents will still need to be provided. The SBSB Fintech Lawyers team will help you smoothly go through all the steps of legal entity setup in Malta:

  1. Prepare all necessary documents for a comprehensive company verification, and if necessary, fill out applications.
  2. After agreeing on the details, prepare for signing by the Registrar in Malta the Memorandum and Articles of Association of your future company.
  3. We will assist you in tax planning, compliance with all document content requirements, opening the optimal bank account for you, and with any other legal issues when registering a business.

If necessary, SBSB Fintech Lawyers specialists will manage your project comprehensively from start to finish, providing qualified assistance at every stage! Malta company incorporation cost will depend on the type of company, legal and administrative costs, consultations, legal support, and other services included in the incorporation package. Leave a request and we will contact you to discuss the details.
