Malta, still the best place to do business in Europe

Image
As Perpetual Travellers go, for good reason we tend to take an integrated approach to the work and life balance. Mixing business with pleasure is often necessary for the small to medium Company owner. Shopping around for the most cost effective corporate structure is always wise, especially considering the current global financial climate. Our research in Europe points to Malta as the best place to set up a Company and declare taxes, which we advise all Perpetual Travellers to do, as the days of NO TAX OFFSHORE have simply gone. 
Previously, Cyprus was a strong competitor, however they are playing with the Tax rate these days by introducing the following new Taxes and increases:
A new stealth Tax of 350 euro just to have a Company each year.Increase from 15% to 20% for residents on the dividends.VAT increase from 15% to 17%. All of the above may rise again as austerity hits Cyprus, which will take Cyprus pretty much out of this market at least for new start ups. 
Both Cyprus and Malta…

American Airlines and US Airways Group joined forces shaping world's largest airline despite the US Government contrast to approve merging. American government argued that unification of both companies will result to stifled competition and increase in the price of air fares.

Bad news for investors and business owners in Cyprus

Image
It's bad news all around for investors and businesses in the Island of Cyprus and we hope that not too many PT's got caught out!
It appears the Government as of Saturday 16th of March will trade the rights of depositors' (both resident and overseas) hard earned savings, to resolve the Banking mess and the excesses of Government expenditure. 
Having just been elected, the new right wing Government wasted no time in striking a deal with the EU and international lenders, which amounts to a Cyprus bailout worth 10 billion euros. To make it happen all depositors have been severely penalized for trusting the banks of Cyprus with their money and the Government to protect their private financial rights. The problem in Cyprus was not caused by the depositors, however this draconian rule will in reality mean the following: Depositors with over 100,000 euro in the bank will as of next Tuesday be 10% worse off.Depositors with less than 100,000 euro in the bank will as of next Tuesday …
