Malta

Malta is a small, island country in the Mediterranean Sea that lies south of the island of Sicily, Italy. Malta is an archipelago, but only the three largest islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino are inhabited.

Malta has a clear political will to make financial services the largest contributor to national GDP, an up-to-date, robust and widely respected jurisdiction in line with EU directives, an extensive double tax treaty network, unique tax system with significant refunds and tax credits available and a single, flexible regulator for financial services with a focus to attract the right kind of business. Coupled with the availability of a highly skilled, English speaking workforce and cost effective establishment costs make Malta an ideal jurisdiction.

The official languages are Maltese and English and the currency is Euro (EUR).
