SETTING UP AND MOVING A COMPANY

If you’re planning on opening up or relocating your business, Malta is the place to do so. Being that it’s well-positioned, with profitable tax legislation, Malta is the popular option for a lot of business-related establishments. As part of the European Union, Malta follows European regulations, thus being an on-shore jurisdiction. This guarantees access to European as well as international markets. However, relocating your company does not require your pre-existing company to be dissolved. Malta’s regulations allow companies which are being moved to be acknowledged by the regional registrar, such that there will be a smooth and uninterrupted flow between the jurisdiction pertaining to your region and Malta.

TAX PLANNING

Malta’s positioning and existence within the European Single Market have caused it to become a preferred residence for global business entrepreneurs, validated by Malta’s exceptionally advantageous tax programme. The customary corporate tax rate for non residents in Malta is 35 percent, but contingent on the kind of business, we are able to provide final tax rates of just 5 percent. This is obtained through a number of tax refunds which have been put into effect in the interest of companies and Maltese partaking holding companies, with the intention of drawing foreign investors to Malta.

Malta’s full imputation tax system guarantees that returns which are a consequence of a post corporate tax pay out are not taxed once again.

Malta’s tax system along with its various participation in Double Tax Agreements, make it the European Union’s onshore affiliate of choice when it comes to taxation. Alan Attard is well informed of such tax advantages, and is in contact with various financial professionals, so as to offer you tax recommendations directed at making the most of your corporate tax rate.

VALUE ADDED TAX (VAT) SERVICES

With the complexity of Vat rules which are constantly evolving, many businesses choose to outsource their VAT calculations to professional tax experts. Since Malta forms part of the EU VAT system, should the management and control be situated in Malta, then the company may apply for an EU-Compliant VAT number. Getting this correct the first time round is essential to be able to benefit from swift tax refunds, as well as avoiding you hefty fines which could have a major impact on the business cash flow and profitability.

Alan Attard is in a position to assist with VAT Registration, VAT Returns compilation and calculation as well as VAT refunds claims and recovery.

 

 

 

MALTESE REGISTERED ADDRESS

Irrespective of where the company conducts its business, a Maltese company must, by law, have its registered office in Malta. This is where the company must hold its corporate documents (such as company registers, annual accounts, Vat Certificates and documents of incorporation) for public inspection. By avoiding the expenses of any short or long term rental agreements, a registered address is an easy solution for those willing to establish a legal presence in Malta.

As a co-founder and shareholder of Island Properties, Alan Attard is well poised to service any of your Real estate needs.

 

 

 

SERVICED OFFICE SPACES

Starting a new business can be quite demanding. As a new business owner, most of your energies should be driven towards growth.

A private office room with shared facilities, avoids the need of expensive and lengthy office rental contracts or any kind of office or commercial space, if you wish to relocate to Malta or even if you would like to outsource such operations from your region.

As a co-founder and shareholder of Island Properties, Alan Attard can supply you with any commercial real estate you require.
