A holding company is a company that owns assets but does not have any operations or active business. It could be a limited liability company or a limited partnership company. The type of assets held by such companies are mainly shares in other companies.
Holding companies are easy to form and cost relatively less to set up. Integritas has expertise in setting up such companies. This means there would be no need to travel, and such a process can be done remotely.
Holding companies are limited liability companies and the members thereof are limited in their liability, if any, to the amount which is unpaid on the shares they respectively hold. Holding companies help their subsidiary company by using their resources to lower the overall operating costs.
Setting up a Maltese holding company requires you to have a minimum share capital of €1,165. Due to Malta’s double taxation agreements, the government does not impose taxes on any of the dividends, profits or interests. Furthermore, the royalties are not taxable when being distributed to non-residents and any foreign shareholder. There is no capital gains tax charged in a holding company by outside investors.
