What is a registered address?
A registered address is an official address of the Company whereby important documents of the company and that of its officers, as well as shareholders, as the case might be can be securely delivered. This must be a place in Malta irrespective of where the business is carried out.
Are there any requirements?
At the very minimum a number of documents should be kept pertaining to the company and showing information about the owners at its registered address. Some documents (list is not an exhaustive one) includes: -
- Incorporation documents;
- Share registers and share certificates;
- Annual accounts;
- Dividend warrants;
Can I use my own address as a registered address?
Yes of course. However, this is not always possible for start-ups. Furthermore, if you are renting out an office or other operating space, you will need the consent of the landlord to use their premises as the registered address of the Company.
