BDO Malta provides you with the opportunity to benefit from the services of fully qualified and specialised resources without the burden of hiring people and running the office. In case your company already has an established finance department, outsourcing part of the accounting can assist in reducing the workload and increasing overall efficiency.

Cost reduction is one of the main benefits of outsourcing your accounting services.

Engaging BDO Malta does not only reduce the costs of your company but also provides your business with the benefit of an efficient and experienced back-office service. The bottom line is that it saves you time and leaves you free to fully concentrate on what matters most, which is, running the business. The services include, but are not limited to:

  • Day to day postings
  • Debtor collection
  • Supplier payments
  • Maintenance of bank accounts
  • Preparation of monthly/quarterly/annual management accounts, as well as annual financial statements for auditors' review
  • Liaising with auditors
  • Accounting Advisory
  • Tax planning and submission of annual returns as well as VAT representation and compliance.


We can also assist companies with the following services:

  • Regulatory filings with the MFSA

Due to the increase in companies licenced by the MFSA, we can assist such companies with the preparation of the quarterly management accounts and the overall review of files before submission. We can also assist companies with the actual upload of files within the MFSA and the Central Bank of Malta (CBM) portals.

  • Assistance with the preparation of financial statements under the local framework GAPSME

We can have the necessary knowledge in-house to prepare the financial statements under GAPSME framework based on the trial balance and accounting ledgers provided to us by clients. The financials will be tailor-made for each instance and will be finalised by us to be forwarded to the auditors.

  • Assistance with the conversion of the accounts from IFRS to GAPSME and vice-versa

The conversion from IFRS to GAPSME and vice-versa may be necessary for companies that are either increasing or decreasing in size, as well as due to the change in companies' policies. The other reason for such can be group reporting requirements and preparation of consolidated accounts for the local regulators and/or foreign investors. Being highly technical and the standards-knowledge based in nature, we have the necessary knowledge and experience to assist with such conversion/s.

  • Business Plans

Our accounting professionals will assist you with determining the (financial) consequences of your strategic options. On the basis of a financial assessment we show you what your strategic options mean for the balance sheet, results, liquidity forecast and any financing needs of your business. We prepare various scenarios so you have a realistic picture of the potential developments within your organisation.

Applicable from financial years ending 31 Dec 2019, and brought into force through Legal Notice 110 of 2019 as subsidiary legislation to the Income Tax Act, Chapter 123 of the Laws of Malta, the Consolidated Group (Income Tax) Rules were introduced enabling the eligible groups to benefit from paying an effective tax at 5% straight away without paying the 35% and thereafter claiming tax refunds. The eligible groups will need to prepare a set of consolidated financial statements specifically drawn up for the purpose of such consolidated tax return and our dedicated accounting team can assist with such preparation.
