The most common type of company in Malta is the Limited Liability company in which capital is divided into shares and the company is unrestricted by nationality or residence of its directors or any of its shareholders. Such companies can be registered online with ease, notwithstanding that they comply to the local requirements. Such a company can be public or private and has a legal personality distinct from that of its members. 

Over recent years and in particular since it gained EU membership in 2004 there has been a dramatic increase in businesses seeking to establish themselves or re-instate their business in Malta. Malta’s corporate laws are thus aligned with the EU and aside from this the island is in a position of growth and able to offer a solid legal system backed by attractive business opportunities.

Foreign companies are entitled to open branches in Malta.
