5. Malta Company Law Aspects

Capital Requirements

A private company must have a minimum issued share capital of €1,164.69. 20% of this amount must be paid up on incorporation. Any foreign convertible currency may be used to denominate this capital. The chosen currency will also be the company’s reporting currency and the currency in which tax is paid and any tax refund due is received, a factor which eliminates foreign exchange risks. Furthermore, Maltese company law provides for companies set up with a variable share capital.


Whilst companies are generally set up with more than one shareholder, there is the possibility to set up a company as a single member company. Various persons or entities may hold shares, including individuals, corporate entities, trusts and foundations. Alternatively, a trust companiy such as Chetcuti Cauchi's Claris Capital Limited, our trust company which has been authorised by the Malta Financial Services Authority to act as trustee or fiduciary, may hold shares for the benefit of the beneficiaries.


The objects of a private limited company are unlimited but must be specified in the Memorandum of Association. In case of a Private exempt limited company, a primary purpose must be stated as well.

Directors and Secretary in Malta company

With respect to directors and company secretary, private and public companies have different requirements. While private companies must have a minimum of one director, a public company must have a minimum of two. It is also possible for a director to be a body corporate. All companies are obliged to have a company secretary. A Malta company secretary must be an individual and there is a possibility for a director to act as a company secretary. In the case of private exempt company Malta, a sole director may also act as the company secretary.

While there are no legal requisites regarding the residence of directors or the company secretary, it is advisable to appoint Malta resident directors as this ensures that the company is managed effectively in Malta. Our professionals are able to act as or recommend officers for client companies under our administration.

6. Malta Company Tax System

Companies registered in Malta are considered to be resident and domiciled in Malta, thus they are subject to tax on their worldwide income less permitted deductions at the corporate income tax rate which at present stands at 35%.

Imputation System

Maltese tax resident shareholders receive full credit for any tax paid by the company on profits distributed as dividends by a Maltese company, thus preventing the risk of double taxation on that income. In cases where the shareholder is liable to tax in Malta on dividend at a rate which is lower than the company rate of tax (which currently stands at 35%), excess imputation tax credits are refundable.

Tax Refunds

Upon receipt of a dividend, shareholders of a Malta company may claim a refund of all or part of the Malta tax paid at the level of the company on such income. In order to determine the amount of refund which one may claim, the type and source of the income received by the company must be considered. Shareholders of a company that have a branch in Malta and who are receiving dividends out of branch profits subject to tax in Malta qualify for the same Malta tax refunds as shareholders of a Malta company.

Maltese law stipulates that refunds are to be paid within 14 days from the day in which a refund becomes due, that is when a complete and correct tax return for the company and shareholders has been filed, the tax due has been fully paid and a complete and proper refund claim has been made.

Refunds may not be claimed in any case on tax suffered on income derived directly or indirectly, from immovable property.
