General Information On Malta
Malta offers significant advantages for setting up your company. As an EU Member State, Malta offers you EU-compliant, low effective tax rates, a very professional and stable services infrastructure and a respected reputation.
The Republic of Malta is an island situated in Southern Europe. It comprises several islands on the Mediterranean Sea, about 80 km south of Sicily, with a population of around 416,000. The capital of Malta is Valletta and is effectively the smallest national capital in the European Union. Maltese and English are the official languages.
Historically, Malta's location was of great strategic importance as a naval base. It gained independence from the United Kingdom in 1964 and became a republic in 1974. Malta joined the European Union in 2004 and became part of the Eurozone in 2008.
Since the country is part of the European Union, companies registered in Malta benefit from all of the advantages of a European company, even being able to apply for a VAT number, but with a far lower tax rate.
