Establishing a Branch in Malta

Setting up a branch in Malta provides overseas companies with various benefits, owing to attractive tax rates, strong infrastructure, ideal geographical location, and a well-trained English-speaking business industry. An added benefit is that foreign companies do not require physical presence in Malta for branch registration to be made. Instead, the appointment of a local representative is sufficient.

The overseas company must register the branch with the Malta Business Registry within one month of establishing the place of business.
