Personal & Corporate Tax Compliance
We represent individual and commercial clients in matters having tax
implications, identifying and addressing domestic and international
tax issues, structuring transactions in such a way as to avoid or
minimize taxes in each pertinent jurisdiction.
Our in-house Accounting and Tax Unit handles income tax, VAT and other tax
returns. We also provide representation with the Inland Revenue and
VAT Departments in cases of assessments or other challenges to tax
International Tax Planning
Our tax lawyers are foremost specialists in their field. Tax
planning is our main focus, particularly with the use of Maltese
International Trading Companies,
Holding Companies and, where applicable,
Trusts to legally minimise taxation of business operations. We
can combine Maltese components with existing international tax plans
as well as work out independent tailored personal and
business tax solutions for small owner-managed companies seeking
to compete in the international arena.
We understand the importance of ensuring our clients' unlimited
access to and free use of the proceeds of their labour and we keep
our structures as simple and easy to use as possible. However,
we do not underestimate the importance of long-term planning and the
implications of a constantly changing regulatory environment and
remain continuously abreast with the daily changes in national and
international tax laws.
