Legal Advice Malta
Dr. jur. Werner, Dr. Peralta and Dr. Calleja advise clients in regard to issues of German, Maltese and international law. A particular focus thereby resides on corporate law, law and property and rental law, while on the Maltese side there is a focus on corporate and commercial law. Dr. Werner & Partner’s attorneys are members of the German and Maltese bar associations. As regards any matters beyond their respective professional or jurisdictional horizons, they can rely on an extensive network of international colleagues.
CAN I JUST GO AHEAD AND MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
ARE DR. WERNER & PARTNER REALLY LOCATED IN MALTA?
Yes, our law offices are located in Sliema and currently employee 14 staff members.
IS DR. WERNER REALLY A GERMAN ATTORNEY IN MALTA?
Yes, Dr. Werner is a German lawyer who is admitted in Germany and registered in Malta to provide legal services there.
OK, SO I’LL JUST RENT A FLAT IN MALTA AND DE-REGISTER WHERE I LIVE. HOW SHOULD THE FINANCIAL AUTHORITIES THEN BE ABLE TO PROVE THAT I’M STILL THERE?
1. Regardless of whether or not the local financial authorities find out about it, or whether or not they can prove it, it can still be considered tax evasion to be residing in another country and not paying taxes there.
2. In many countries, the local financial authorities usually do not need to prove anything. You do. They make a claim, and you need to show the opposite.
SO FOR WHOM DOES MALTA MAKE PERFECT SENSE?
First of all, for anyone who is not tied down and can imagine living in Malta. In our view, it’s particularly favourable for international entrepreneurs and internet-based business company owners who can work (and who do work) from any PC or telephone located anywhere in the world.
