As a full member of the EU and with favourable tax rates, opening a company in Malta can provide many benefits with the correct implementation and planning.

Malta also enjoys the benefits of EU directives and offers an extensive network of double taxation treaties. To date, such treaties are in force with over 70 countries.

We assist you every step of the way

With the support of Astra Consulting, opening a Maltese company is hassle-free and straightforward. All you need to do is supply certain due diligence documents, provide share capital and sign a few forms outlining your intention to open a company in Malta. Typically, upon submission, the company is incorporated by the Malta Business Registry within 3 to 5 working days. There are low statutory registration fees with a low threshold minimum authorised share capital, of which at least 20% must be fully paid up.

Once the company is open, we flexibly accommodate all of your business needs. All companies in Malta are required to have a director, secretary and registered address, keep records in accordance with Maltese standards and complete an audit at the end of every financial year. We make things simple for you by assisting with all of the above.

Should you wish to close your Maltese company for whatever reason, we assist you with the entire liquidation process. Essentially, the company needs to be in good standing and complete liquidation accounts for the period to date. All debtors and creditors must be taken care of and the company cannot have any pending debts. Following the decision to close your business based in Malta, an official declaration must be signed by the shareholders of the company and a liquidator will need to be appointed.
