The Trusts & Trustee Act of 2004 is the regulatory act of all trusts in Malta and is based highly on the UK system, but this act provides greater simplicity and flexibility, giving Malta a unique advantage. A trust in Malta can permit holding any property, whether the owner is a local or resident or not. A trust in Malta is not an out-of-the-box solution but a customised solution. Trusts are adept at providing solutions for certain commercial applications including securitisation and collective investment schemes. Income earned by trust assets is not taxable in the hands of the trustee but is taxed by the beneficiaries upon distribution of these assets. However, tax income is specifically exempt from any incoming coming from outside of Malta by a non-resident, as stipulated in the Income Tax Act.

Banks in Malta offer Trust accounts, effectively deposit accounts which are held in the name of the bank, who is also appointed as trustee of the same account. This account is maintained and operated by the bank for the beneficiaries, and does not for part of any estate of the settlor.
