Event Overview

The Malta Registry of Companies is responsible for registering companies and partnerships as per the Companies Act, 1995. Maltese company law provides for a very straightforward process to register a company. The formation process can be finalized within 24-48 hours from receipt of the documentation which satisfies the requirements established by Maltese law.

However,  depending on the Memorandum and Articles,  which defines the object and purpose of the company,  there are other administrative procedures that have to be carried out before a company can trade and employ persons in Malta.  This session will be going through these procedures and explaining the regulatory and service delivery framework of Government when it comes to businesses.

The core responsibilities of the Registrar of Companies arise out of the Companies Act, 1995. These are, registration of new commercial partnerships, registration of documents related to commercial partnerships, keeping the company and partnership register, collection of registration and other fees, publication of notices, issue of certified documentation, issue of good-standing and other certificates, reservation of company names, imposition and collection of penalties and investigation of companies. The Registry of Companies Agency also offer online services. This seminar will focus on the registration of companies and related matters.
