Company Formation

A unique business destination

The Maltese jurisdiction continues to be one of the fastest growing business hubs for a range of industries and top international brands. Gaming, financial and corporate services, ICT, life sciences, maritime and aviation, are amongst the most thriving industries on the island.

This is mainly driven by the country’s flexible and comprehensive legislative and regulatory framework, coupled with a unique business entrepreneurial culture and an ever-evolving economic strategy.

Considered as one of the most dynamic and innovative states within the European Union (EU), Malta is undoubtedly an ideal place where to set up business.

What can Malta offer?
  • An entrepreneurial culture backed by a focus on Foreign Direct Investment (FDI)
  • A multicultural country with a strong Expat community
  • A highly skilled, flexible and multilingual workforce, with strong IT knowledge
  • Ease of doing business
  • Fiscal and financial incentive packages
  • An advanced educational system
  • One of the most innovative and tech-driven EU states
  • An international hub for electronically delivered services, with gaming and financial services topping the list
  • Economic, political and social stability
  • Strong ties with other EU states, and equally strong ties with Northern African countries
  • A safe country with state of the art public and private health services
Offshore (setting up a company in other jurisdictions)

Setting up a new company in other international jurisdictions, sometimes also referred to as offshore jurisdictions, can be a challenging task, especially for start up companies within the gaming industry.  Having said this, through the assistance of the right partner, choosing the jurisdiction where to structure your company can become a much easier task.

At IGA Group we have a team of dedicated professionals, with years of experience in assisting entrepreneurs in the early stages of their business ventures.  Over the years we have provided our services to a number of companies, and assisted them in the company formation process, both within the EU, but also in other international jurisdictions.  All this, in full compliance with international laws and regulations governing the sector.

Our mission is to provide a unique experience to all our clients, ensuring our wealth of knowledge is used to provide best in class solutions both in Malta and internationally, and through the years IGA was pivotal in ensuring the success of a number of start ups who are now well established brands.
