  • EU VAT on Yacht solutions

    The yachting industry sails across a dynamic regulatory environment, increasingly leading to more paperwork, administration, checks and procedures.  In this context, and considering that yachts are generally a leisure escape, yacht owners are constantly looking for straight forward solutions that allow them to sail their yachts worry-free.  Malta has been at the forefront in providing such solutions and finding a balance between what are usually deemed two opposing needs: those of proper regulation and application of procedures on the one hand, and enjoyment of the yacht without unnecessary and unwarranted restrictions, on the other.   
  • NAIF - an AIFMD-Compliant Fund with quick access to the market

    Since the advent of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (‘AIFMD’), fund managers have been facing a double regulatory burden as a result of having both fund managers and funds subject to prudential regulation which led to overlapping and possibly inconsistent regulatory requirements affecting funds.
  • Malta Stock Exchange: European capital raising now easier for SMEs

    While larger enterprises often steal the limelight, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), very often being family businesses, make up the very backbone of most economies, with SMEs constituting the vast majority of companies within the EU. In Malta, 99.9% of Maltese companies are classified as SMEs, with 4.8% classified as small to medium enterprises and 95.1% classified as micro organisations.
  • LICENCE TO SKILL – AN OUTLINE OF MALTA’S REGULATION OF SKILL GAMES

    Gambling, from a legal and policy perspective, has been consistently defined by reference to the constitutive elements of involving a monetary consideration, an element of chance, and a prize having some inherent value. Although definitions can vary significantly from one jurisdiction to another, the general consensus has been that a game or scheme that requires players to stake something of value for a prize that is awarded due to the outcome of an uncertain event should be treated as “gambling.”

    A. INTRODUCTION
  • European Commission Proposal Strengthens Privacy Rules for Electronic Communications

    Following a leak in early December , the European Commission has officially published the finalised proposed new legislation which aims to strengthen privacy in electronic communications. The Regulation on Privacy and Electronic Communications (“Proposal”) aims to repeal the ePrivacy Directive. These rules will be updating existing laws and bringing them in line with the new General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), forming part of the Digital Single Market Strategy.
  • LEAKED EPRIVACY DRAFT: WHAT TO EXPECT

    Following the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation, the European Commission has been working on reforming the E-Privacy Directive. The draft law was leaked  on the 13th of December 2016. Although this is not the final version, we now have a clearer idea of what to expect in the coming months. The Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulation is expected to be finalized by January 2017. Since this is no longer a directive but is now a regulation, there is no need for it to be transposed. It will become effective within 6 months as opposed to the normal 2 year period, which means that companies will have a much shorter time period within which to bring themselves in line with the Regulation.
  • Posting of Workers: The New Proposal of EU Commission for Revision of EU Directive 96/71/EC

    As a specific form of temporary labour mobility, posting of workershas been a prominent topic of public and political debate during previous decades. Several factors have contributed to the debate.
