Aircraft Registration and Management

The Malta Aircraft Registry was established on 1st October 2010 and Malta has also acceded to the Cape Town Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment and its Aircraft Protocol.
In November of 2012, the Malta Government VAT Department published guidelines specifically targeted to VAT for aircraft. These regulations have clarified the treatment of VAT payable on aircraft which are leased to third parties by a Maltese Company. These guidelines provide attractive financial arrangements for business and private aircraft which may fly within EU member’s airspace.

DCTS (Malta) Limited can assist with the registration of the aircraft and formation and management of an appropriate structure to hold the asset/aircraft either in Malta or other suitable jurisdiction and also assist with leasing structures from Malta.
