Malta enjoys a stable political climate and a bi-partisan political scene that is largely convergent on issues of national and economic importance. The country is considered to be one of the best performing Eurozone economies, with a steady economic growth and a low unemployment rate.
Malta has been a member of the EU since 2004 and of the Schengen Area since 2007.
Malta Holding Companies are typically used for holding of shares in other companies to own, manage, as well as, administer property, patents, copyrights and other tangible assets.
Malta Holding Companies are incorporated in terms of the Malta Companies Act, which is the principal piece of corporate law in Malta. The Act is predominantly based on common law principles, and is also in line with EU Directives.
Holding Companies are onshore entities setup as partnerships or limited liability companies - the latter being the most popular corporate entities, due to their flexibility and tax efficiency.
