Corporate compliance in Malta is a complex legal requirement for all
Maltese registered companies. Our
law team helps all companies
and their officers to fulfil their statutory obligations under
Maltese company law
in an efficient manner. Our lawyers provide advice to
directors on their rights and obligations as officeholders in limited
companies. Appointment as a director should not be accepted without an
understanding of the duties existing under the Companies Act, other
legislation including tax and VAT implications.
A director is usually an employee as well as a officeholder and it is
often prudent for the terms of employment to be set out clearly in a
written service agreement or, where the director is an independent
contractor, in a consultancy agreement.
Chetcuti Cauchi undertakes litigation arising from claims of breach of
directors' duties or criminal / administrative cases against directors
and company officers for tax and VAT obligations.
