Born out of the strategic alliance between two commercial law firms and an accountancy services firm, Credence was conceived to create an accessible team of experts to advise on the increasingly sophisticated structures offered by Maltese financial services legislation. Over the last decade we have grown into a high-level advisory firm, defined by the strength of our steadily growing team of advisers and our strategic partnerships with firms across key jurisdictions.
Specialising in complex structures for a predominantly international clientele, we have advised government institutions, authorities, private and commercial banks and multinationals as well as high net worth individuals.
This ensures that we understand that independently of the size of an entity, every contact must be uniquely personal and entirely deliberate.
Corporate services are at the core of our organisation. As a licensed CSP (Company Service Providers Act, Chapter 529 of the Laws of Malta), Credence offers comprehensive solutions for corporate structuring and ongoing administration of trading, investment as well as pure holding activities.
We are in a unique position to harness our personal working relationships with authorities, government departments and banks to deliver our expertise with speed and efficiency.
Our legal team regularly advises owners, prospective owners, financiers and managers on the sale/acquisition of yachts and superyachts, asset financing and registration of mortgages, yacht importation, VAT and crew-related matters.
In an ever-changing environment, a network of like-minded professionals in different jurisdictions is pivotal if one is to avoid the pitfalls of fiscal and technical compliance. To this end, our yachting team regularly attends conferences and yacht shows to create and maintain an open channel of communication with our peers across the globe.
We advise on various aspects relating to commercial and private aviation, including assistance in the obtaining of AOCs, as well as the registration of aircraft in Malta and of security rights in respect thereof. Credence relies on the highest level of technical and legal support that is available locally and abroad, enabling it to provide the best possible tailor-made solutions to its clients.
Credence is an approved agent for the purposes of the Malta Individual Investor Programme (IIP) and the Malta Residence and Visa Programme (MRVP), launched in 2013 and 2015 respectively.
Through its network and multi-lingual workforce, Credence is well-positioned to offer comprehensive relocation services and to assist applicants and their families with fulfilling the investment requirements applicable to each programme.
The Maltese programmes have earned a reputation for quality and transparency and are today regarded among the leading investment migration programmes globally, offering mobility and peace of mind to high net worth individuals worldwide.
Credence Fiduciary Limited is authorised by the Malta Financial Services Authority to carry out the duty of a trustee, provide fiduciary services, and administer private foundations. Building on Malta’s reputation as one of the most valued trust jurisdictions in the EU, Credence adds the level of transparency and competency that our clients have come to depend on us for.
We work closely with family offices to deliver effective solutions to our clients for a multitude of applications such as succession planning, asset protection or segregation and protection of family members.
Basing a trust in Malta offers the full complement of jurisdiction benefits, such as the ability to choose which jurisdiction will regulate the trust, whilst forming part of a highly regulated EU economic and financial environment.
Credence accounting is a multidisciplinary team of experienced accounting and tax professionals who advise about critical issues arising from the implementation of the accounting function. With specialisation around changes in accounting standards and regulatory requirements, new business activities, and business acquisitions.
Credence accounting does all the heavy lifting for the most complex of structures. In addition to all process associated with traditional accounting, we provide performance-based reporting for monitoring of business efficiency. This is complemented by the full spectrum of payroll-related services as well as indirect taxation processing.
