Corporate Law

The main body of corporate law in Malta is the Companies Act, 1995 which is mainly based upon common law principles, but which has been brought in line with the relevant EU directives. The Maltese Registry of Companies, housed under the auspices of the Malta Financial Services Authority, is the authority which is responsible for tackling the day-to-day matters which arise in the company law sphere. These authorities are committed to Malta’s growth as a financial centre and simultaneously safeguarding the interests of the public.
