Financial Services

Over the years Malta has become the destination of choice for many companies wishing to set up a financial services business. Malta is a member of the EU, and as such its financial services laws are harmonised to those of the rest of the EU. Moreover, corporate tax rates of 35% along with rebates for non-resident shareholders result in a tax rate which can be quite beneficial. All of this makes Malta a very attractive option, and one which is not too expensive.

Our Experience

In the past years, E&S Group has earned itself a very good reputation among a number of players in the financial services industry. We assist our clients with implementing their start-up plans as well as with obtaining their financial services licences. In addition, we help our clients compile strategic plans and assist them with their day-to-day requirements.

Licensing: We assist our clients with obtaining their financial services licenses. We also help them in their compliance processes to ensure that they adhere to any post-licensing obligations.

Professional services: The costs of professional advisors and other service providers in Malta are significantly lower than in other European financial services hubs. This is particularly attractive to start-up financial services businesses. We can help our clients in sourcing their service providers and avoid unnecessary costs whilst maintaining high standards and efficiency.

Taxation: We guide our clients in ensuring fiscal optimisation while getting full benefits out of Malta’s fiscal system.

Authorities: The Malta Financial Services Authority is the body responsible for licensing and supervising the operations of financial services businesses in Malta. Contrary to most other regulators within the EU, the MFSA is very approachable – meetings can generally be held with a substantial degree of flexibility. Promoters wishing to set up a financial services business can meet – and are actually encouraged to meet – the regulator. We can assist accordingly and act as a point of liaison between the client and the authorities.
