Set Up A Foundation in Malta – Detailed Guide 2020

Maltese foundations are also known as non-profit organiszations(NGO’s). Their popularity increased in Malta over the years, due to an attractive regulatory regime in the Civil Law and Voluntary Organisations Act. This was adopted in 2008 and is the same law that regulates the fiduciary obligations and trust in Malta. One of the main differences of a foundation when compared to a regular organisation is that, they must be set up for their legal personality and in some cases, they can also be utilised as a shareholder in a Maltese limited liability company.
