Open-an e-commerce-business-in-Malta.jpgAn e-commerce business in Malta is not only easy to incorporate and develop, but also extremely appealing for numerous foreign investors who would like to flourish in the communication and technology sector in Malta.

Do I need to register an online business in Malta?

 
Yes, even if a business runs the activities on the internet, it is necessary to register with the Maltese authorities in charge with the incorporation. A limited liability company can be the proper business structure for an online shop in Malta. A business address, a representative and the Articles of Association are among the requirements of forming an LLC in Malta. Even though the incorporation procedure is simple, we suggest you address to our company formation specialists in Malta and ask for assistance and details in this matter.

Those who want to set up a website and develop the online activities should observe the conditions in this matter, such as:
 
  • the e-commerce payment methods need to be integrated on the website;
  • the security system should be implemented on the website before going online;
  • the domain name registration, the mobile application, and the shopping cart system need to be considered for the online business;
  • the GDPR regulations must align with the latest EU directives.
 

Do I need a business license for an e-commerce business in Malta?

 
Yes, just like for any kind of business, a license is mandatory which is issued for all retail operators on the internet by the Ministry of Commerce in Malta. One must consider the intellectual property rights in Malta and register the trademarks with the authorities in charge. We invite you to talk to our specialists and find out more about the company registration in Malta.
 

Why open an online business in Malta?

 
The appealing tax structure for online businesses, the great infrastructure in Malta, a reliable banking system and a multitude of business possibilities in the e-commerce sector are a few of the reasons why foreign investors decide on such kind of activities.
