Corporate Management

Corporate Management

Corporate management refers to the process by which companies are led, administered, and directed. Business tasks which are typically associated with corporate management are strategic planning, managing company resources and applying these resources towards attaining the company’s objectives.

At Chetcuti Cauchi, we offer a vast range of services which fall under the scope of corporate management. Our wealth of expertise in the corporate field has given us an abundance of experience which we utilise to our clients’ advantage in order to provide the best solutions possible which will benefit their companies.

Company Formation

Our Company formation and administration practice group has in depth experience in all matters of company formation. In Malta, the process by which companies are formed is relatively straightforward and can be completed within 24-48 hours from receipt of the documentation which satisfies the requirements established by Maltese law.

Cyprus has also become an ideal jurisdiction for Cyprus company formation, providing a tax-efficient way to conduct international business.  At 12.5%, Cyprus boasts among one of the lowest corporate taxes in the EU and has ranked as the world’s 20th freest economies in the Heritage Organisation’s 2012 Index of Economic Freedom.

Our Corporate Management team is able to deliver solutions in very short response times for queries related to company formation in Malta and Cyprus and can assist clients with fast company formation and company incorporation services, if required even within the next 24 hours.

Management Reporting

Management reporting is a vital aspect of corporate management. Our timely and regular management reporting service enables business to take meaningful business decisions at the right time, giving our clients commercial agility and a competitive advantage over business adversaries. Management reports can be prepared and presented to the decision-makers of your business on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis.

Company Secretary

As per Maltese and Cypriot law, Malta and Cyprus companies must have a company secretary. The secretary carries out a very important function in a company, so much so that Cypriot law recognises a company secretary as an 'officer' of a company. Our corporate management practice provides a competent and experienced Company Secretary to administer the company’s official duties and thus ensures that the client’s company if fully compliant with annual filing requirements applicable.

Our company secretarial services include filing statutory returns, completion of share transfers or changes in directors and revising/updating of the client’s company’s Memorandum and Articles of Association.
