liaision_office_in_malta.jpgThe liaison office acts as a communication way between the head office of a foreign company and the clients the company has in Malta. The liaison office can also be regarded as a proxy between the headquarters of a company and its suppliers in Malta. 

The liaison office is not allowed to conduct any commercial activity; therefore it will not be subject to the Maltese tax system. Our experts can provide you with information about the company registration process in Malta.
