Compliance in Malta
The Malta Anti-Money Laundering Legislation
Whether you are running a business or a regulated activity, the Anti-Money Laundering legislation imposes a number of obligations upon you.
For many businesses, both at a domestic as well as at a multi-national level, compliance with the increasing number of rules as well as the more rigorous enforcement by authorities prove to be an increasing challenge. As businesses undergo expansion into new markets, complying with all reporting requirements as well as managing tax risks increases significantly.
For this reason, we believe in offering efficient and cost-effective tax compliance services at Valletta Legal, which include both outsourcing as well as co-sourcing options. Bringing together a host of integrated tax technologies, we are able to offer elevated levels of business visibility, which in turn may prove useful during your strategic planning process.
