The Malta jurisdiction
Malta is situated about 100 km off the coasts of Sicily and, due to its proximity to various markets and especially after its accession into the EU, it has become a major foreign investment center. Malta enjoys a stable economy and a well-structured fiscal and legislative framework. Its government implements policies to reduce the role of the state in the economy, while it seeks for foreign direct investment in various sectors, even serving as a liaison between investors and other entities. All this also contributed to making Malta into a popular investment center.
The Malta jurisdiction is a member of over 50 Double Taxation Treaties that include EU member states, north African countries, as well as members of the Commonwealth and this is yet another reason that turned the island into a dynamic investment center. It offers substantial tax incentives and various advantages to shareholders, while, just like in the Cyprus jurisdiction , all personal details about the beneficial owner of an IBC remain confidential.
