The governing legislation for Corporate Secretarial services in Malta is the Company Service Providers Act, which provides a statutory basis for the registration of persons who provide company services. The Companies Act supports the establishment of the following company categories:
- Private and public limited liability companies
- Partnerships en nom collectif and Partnerships en commandite - general and limited partnerships
- Single Member Company
- Branches of foreign companies

Re-domiciliation is the transfer of a company’s “seat of incorporation” into or out of the jurisdiction. Malta is one such jurisdiction which allows re-domiciliation into and out of Malta, through the Continuation of Companies Regulations, S.L. 386.05. In order for a company to be re-domiciled into Malta, the law of the foreign jurisdiction under which the company is registered must allow for the company to be re-domiciled. Furthermore, the company’s charter, statutes, memorandum and articles or any such other constitutive document must specifically state that the company is able to be re-domiciled to Malta. TMF Malta provides a wide range of services relating to domiciling and managing companies locally.
The reasons for re-domiciliation into Malta are extensive, they include:
- Potentially an effective corporate tax rate of 5% - the lowest in Europe
- Tax-exempt dividend income
- No withholding taxes on payments of dividends and interest
- No taxation on the liquidation of a Maltese company
- Extensive tax treaty network
