Corporate and Commercial

Malta has become a hotspot for international businesses which have opted to set-up or move their corporate structures here. By introducing a strong regulatory framework as well as a competitive and transparent fiscal and taxation regime approved by both the EU and OECD, Malta has propelled itself as one of the most attractive European jurisdictions for new corporate structures and re-domiciliation.  In addition, Malta offers a wide range of corporate vehicles such as companies, limited partnerships, SPVs, European company (societas europaea or SE), trusts and foundations.  These vehicles have been designed to provide asset planners with a certain level of security and provide the necessary structures for the setting up of even the most complex of business models.
