Avanzia Taxand handles the full requirements of registration of pleasure or commercial yacht under the Maltese flag. We deal with Merchant Shipping Directorate of Transport Malta and can also act as a resident agent if necessary.
We guide the client with all the procedures and formalities leading to the provisional registration and permanent registration, completing all the necessary forms – including the application form and declaration of ownership – liaise with the surveyors to obtain the carving and marking note and certificate of survey. We may also apply for a radio license, liaise with the engineers and obtain the call sign and MMSI.
If the yacht is leased, we can also draft the necessary lease agreements as may be necessary and obtain the necessary approvals from the VAT Department and certificates from the authorities. We will attend to pay the necessary fees and remind you of payment and filing obligations before they fall due.
Avanzia Taxand can also assist with the incorporation of a company if the yacht is owned by a Maltese company.
