AREAS OF SPECIALISATION
Since Malta's accession to the EU, European law has permeated all sectors of society, affecting industrial entities and individuals alike. Mifsud & Mifsud Advocates has a specialized EU law department which focuses on assisting clients with EU regulatory compliance in various fields of EU Law including electronic communications, environmental law, employment law, judicial protection, competition law, intellectual property, taxation and company law amongst others.
Malta boasts one of the leading and largest Ship Registries in the world. It is a flexible registry, imposing very few restrictions. The success Malta has achieved in this industry is due to a well-balanced structure of maritime services and fiscal incentives coupled with the Government’s desire to promote the industry, which it seeks to achieve by means of numerous attractive benefits to ship owners. The Maltese Ship Registry includes all types of ships including oil-rigs, pleasure yachts and passenger cruise ships amongst others.
Malta has historically always been at the forefront of the Aviation Industry. It is thus no surprise that it is a major participant in numerous international aviation agreements and conventions, managing to cater for the sudden growth in aviation taking place in recent years through a number of developments.
Banking and Finance
The Companies Act (Chapter 386 of the Laws of Malta) provides a well-structured framework for the regulation of companies and partnerships in the Maltese jurisdiction. Due to Malta’s accession to the European Union, companies registered in Malta enjoy free movement within the EU, whereby they are able to avail themselves of the lowest effective tax rates in Europe due to the extensive Double Taxation Treaty network currently in place. Companies or partnerships may be expediently set up in less than 48 hours with relatively low costs and highly professional services.
Malta’s unique hybrid system is the product of numerous influences coming in from different legal systems throughout the years. In our judicial system we thus witness civil law and common law practices working together with the recent EU laws introduced upon Malta’s accession in 2004.
Malta provides an array of employment, work and occupational health and safety regulations, ensuring good working relationships amongst all employers and employees.
The legal team at Mifsud & Mifsud Advocates has considerable knowledge of the local public procurement laws and regulations namely the Public Contracts Regulations.
Tax
One of the main attractions of the Maltese jurisdiction is its ability to offer favourable tax structures for corporate clients especially in light of the numerous Double Taxation agreements it has secured with a number of countries. Mifsud & Mifsud Advocates assists both local and international clients in achieving the optimal tax structure, which will benefit their company. Its vast experience in this field enables it to offer this service in partnership with AEGIS Corporate Services Limited, the corporate services arm of the firm.
