Legal Representation in Malta

Legal system

The country’s laws are regulated by a written constitution that requires a two-thirds parliamentary majority to be changed. Both civil and criminal laws are codified, a legacy of the brief French rule at the end of the 18th century. Nonetheless, Maltese laws draw much of their inspiration from British Law, and British case law, both civil and criminal, is often quoted in the Maltese law courts. Malta’s accounting standards and criteria are similarly based on the British system.

Conformity with international standards

The larger part of Maltese legislation draws heavily from EU regulations and directives. The financial, banking and insurance sectors are regulated according to international norms and conventions in line with EU directives.

Treaties

Malta enjoys double taxation agreements with 37 countries.
