Malta also offers clients the availability of a private exempt LLC, allowing for single member ownership of a company. Malta is a highly reputable jurisdiction, with a low corporate tax system that attracts many for its modern infrastructure, EU-conforming legislation and superb banking. Because of the many rebates and credits given through their tax imputation system, many companies are able to effectively manage to avoid all corporate taxes.
