Are you contemplating starting a company in Malta, but uncertain about the type of registration that would best suit your needs? Lawtter Solutions is here to guide you to the optimal decision and provide legal support every step of the way. Here are some of the types of company registrations in Malta that we provide:

Sole Proprietorship

This is the simplest and most cost-effective way to establish a business in Malta. You will be the exclusive owner and manager of your company, taking full responsibility for its operations. This registration type is ideal for small to medium-sized businesses with a lower-risk profile. As the owner, you will have complete autonomy to steer strategic decisions and manage the company’s resources.

Private Limited Company

This is the most common and adaptable type of company registration in Malta. It allows you to set up a company with one or more shareholders, who have limited liability for its debts. This form of incorporation suits a wide array of businesses as it simplifies the process of attracting investment, protecting assets, and optimizing taxes.

Holding or Trading Company

This type of company registration in Malta empowers you to manage other companies or trade goods and services. You can establish a holding company to oversee your subsidiaries or a trading company to engage in international commerce. This kind of incorporation is suitable for those desiring to broaden their business and penetrate new markets.

Public Limited Company

This type of company registration in Malta enables you to list your shares on the stock exchange and attract public capital. You must possess a minimum share capital of €46,587 and adhere to strict disclosure regulations. This form of registration is optimal for large and stable companies with significant growth potential.

Single Partner Limited Liability Partnership

This type of company registration in Malta allows you to collaborate with other individuals to operate a joint business. You have the choice between two types of partnerships: general or limited. In a general partnership, all partners share joint and several liabilities for the company’s debts, while in a limited partnership, one or more partners have limited liability, and the others bear unlimited liability. This form of incorporation is perfect for those wishing to work together on a project or share resources.

Residency is not a concern — Malta imposes no residency requirements for a director registering a company. You can become a director regardless of your citizenship. All you need is a single director who has reached the legal age of adulthood.


Malta does not enforce residency restrictions for shareholders. As a citizen of any country, you can become a shareholder of a company. Again, a single shareholder of legal age is all that’s required.


Your company’s address in Malta is crucial. We can assist you in choosing and registering an office that complies with local laws.


Craft a unique identity for your company. We can help you choose the appropriate suffix for the type of company: a Private Limited Company always ends with Limited or LTD, a Partnership with LP, and a Public Limited Company with PLC.

Share Capital

Malta offers flexibility regarding the requirements for share capital payment. There is no requirement to pay the full amount upfront. For private limited companies, the minimum authorized capital is €1,164.69 (with a requirement to pay 20% upon registering the company). Public limited companies require a share capital of €46,587.47 (with a 25% payment obligation at the time of registration).

We can guide you in opening a local bank account in Malta. However, there’s no compulsion to have a local bank account for company registration. Should you have any queries about banking services or requirements, we are ready to provide comprehensive advice to ensure the most convenient and efficient solution.

Taxation System in Malta

Maximize your tax benefits through Malta’s unique company taxation system with Lawtter Solutions, and minimize your tax liabilities. Malta’s progressive approach to taxation can substantially lighten the tax load on your business. The Republic of Malta is an excellent choice for business incorporation due to its beneficial tax structure and well-regulated business environment.

Income Tax — 35%

While the initial impression might make this rate appear steep, there’s more to it. Malta offers companies a rebate on taxes paid on operational profits. Leveraging this mechanism can reduce your effective tax rate to a minimal 5%, a genuine benefit for your business.

Exemption on Dividend Taxes

Malta imposes no tax on dividend payouts, which amplifies the appeal of the country for entrepreneurs. This freedom allows you to manage your dividends without the concern of additional tax obligations.

Value Added Tax (VAT) — 18%

The standard VAT rate in Malta stands at 18%, a competitive rate when juxtaposed with other countries. Furthermore, there are reduced rates of 5% or 7% for specific goods and services categories. This means you can notably decrease your tax liability when selling certain types of goods or services.
