Time required for incorporating a Maltese company

    The length of time to incorporate a company depends on the type of company being incorporated and on whether all information and documentation is available and in order.

    Generally, however, the process takes as little as two to three days from when all information and documentation requested is available and in order.

    The formation of a company involves professional and ancillary fees together with the payment of a once-only registration fee to the Registrar of Companies. Registration fees payable to the Registrar of Companies are calculated on the basis of the company’s authorised share capital as follows:

    Authorised Capital     Registration fee
    Up to €1,500 €245
    Over €1,500 up to €5,000 €245 + €15 for each €500 or part thereof
    Over €5,000 up to €10,000 €350 + €20 for each €1,000 or part thereof
    Over €10,000 up to €50,000 €450 + €20 for each €2,500 or part thereof
    Over €50,000 up to €100,000 €770 + €20 for each €10,000 or part thereof
