Malta Company Director & Malta Company Secretary Services

In Malta, the Companies Act requires that a company has at least one director appointed to the Board of Directors, and this can be an individual director or a corporate entity (except for single-member companies). Furthermore, it is a legal requirement for every company in Malta to have a company secretary. The Malta Company Secretary must be an individual and not be a corporate entity.

Malta Directorship Services and Requirements

Company directors in Malta can be of any nationality although having at least one local Maltese director is advisable. Alongside having local expertise and knowledge, company directors in Malta usually have established communication lines with government authorities such as the Maltese VAT department and Inland Revenue Department, to name a few. Therefore, this ensures that any issues that may arise can be dealt with quickly and efficiently.

Moreover, it is a requirement that all company directors in Malta are listed on with the Malta Business Registry (MBR).
