The Companies Act (Chapter 386 of the Laws of Malta) provides a well-structured framework for the regulation of companies and partnerships in the Maltese jurisdiction. Due to Malta’s accession to the European Union, companies registered in Malta enjoy free movement within the EU, whereby they are able to avail themselves of the lowest effective tax rates in Europe due to the extensive Double Taxation Treaty network currently in place. Companies or partnerships may be expediently set up in less than 48 hours with relatively low costs and highly professional services.
