Company Registration

In addition to obtaining the necessary authorisation from the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) to carry on the business of insurance, the interested party is also subject to all statutory regulations related to company registration.

The MFSA also houses the Registry of Companies where all commercial partnerships including companies are registered irrespective of what type of activities they carry out.

The Registry of Companies is a public registry and all registered information and documentation is available to the public. The Registrar of Companies is appointed in terms of the Companies Act 1995 and is entrusted with ensuring compliance with the provisions of the Act.

A company shall not be validly constituted under the Companies Act, 1995 unless a Memorandum and Articles of Association is entered into and subscribed by at least two persons, and a Certificate of Registration is issued.
