Maltese structures can be very attractive within the realm of international retail and wholesale business. Online retails shops need to be set up in a robust environment providing legal and tax certainity, whilst allowing for the use of double tax treaties to enable the location of certain warehouses for the delivery of items in the jurisdictions where the sales of the goods will be effected.
Also, having an EU-registered entity with a valid VAT number enables such entity to operate within the terms of law efficiently. Malta is definitely well placed as a destination to base such operations, also being mindful of having substance with the mind and management of the company being in Malta. The same concept extends to the wholesale market of goods, which requires careful structuring and also being mindful of the nuances and issues which might arise in the said industry.
