Virtual Financial Assets Agent

BDO Malta was one of the very first entities in Malta to receive a licence to operate as a Virtual Financial Asset (VFA) Agent in terms of Malta’s VFA regulatory framework. The Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) issued the first wave of VFA Agent Licences on the 13 May and BDO was one of the very first to receive the licence. 

Through this appointment, BDO can assist both VFA issuers and VFA service providers in obtaining their licence to operate in a regulated environment. Specifically, a VFA Agent can assist in the setting up of an exchange and to advise investment advisors, OTC brokers, custodians and VFA portfolio managers on the relevant structures, policies and procedures to conduct VFA business in Malta.

Malta has been one of the leading jurisdictions providing for legislative frameworks to spearhead innovation in Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies.

BDO Malta is currently the only firm licenced to act as both a VFA agent and a Systems Auditor.

BDO offers full tax advisory services in relation to the trading of cryptocurrencies, legal services for companies seeking to establish a blockchain business in Malta, including the launching of Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) platforms and any initial coin offerings ancillary thereto.
