On the 6th July, the Malta Business Registry (MBR) issued a circular advising all companies registered in Malta to provide it with an adequate electronic mail address in terms of the legal requirement emanating from Act LX of 2021 by not later than 30th September, 2022.
In addition to it being a legal requirement, providing an electronic mail address ensures the timely service of correspondence to company officers. Moreover, shifting to electronic communication is one of the MBR’s intiatives towards limiting paper-format correspondence as part of local and EU-wide measures related with the European Green Deal.
In order to fully comply with the provisions of Article 69, companies are requested to submit an updated memorandum and articles of association, however in exceptional circumstances, notification of the electronic mail address may also be made by means of a formal letter to the Registrar of Companies at the MBR.
The circular can be accessed from the MBR’s website:
