Company Formation

Company Formation

Based on extensive experience in company formation while maintaining a personalised service, GCS Malta can assist you in setting up a Maltese or an offshore company and establishing the most tax-efficient structures tailor-made to suit your particular needs.

We are able to offer quick and cost-effective company formation services to various entities and individuals at very high-quality levels.

A company is set up in Malta by means of registering a Memorandum and Articles of Association, drafted according to the particular needs of the client and filed at the Registry of Companies in Malta (together with other documentation with respect to the directors, company secretary and shareholders of the company).

The Memorandum and Articles of Association is a contractual document that regulates the relationship between the members, sets out the corporate procedures and establishes the rights and obligations of the officers and the company with third parties.

We can set up a company within 1 to 2 days from agreement on the contents of the Memorandum and Articles of Association, finalization of all agreements, provision of all the necessary documents by way of due diligence, as well as the deposit of the paid-up share capital and applicable fees.
