Accountant Malta


The changes that the world experienced in recent years, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, urged banks to imply significant changes in the digital banking world designed for the digital era to serve customers more efficiently than traditional banks. This can also be seen being implemented by local banks in Malta.

In fact, nowadays, the European market hosts hundreds of Electronic Money Institutions (EMI’s) to be able to provide core financial services across businesses in different industries. In Malta there are around 21 EMIs, licensed and authorised by the Malta Financial Services Authority and can conduct activities in any of the 31 EEA member states.

What is an EMI?

According to the Third Schedule of Financial Institutions Act, an electronic money institution is defined as a “financial institution that has been licensed in accordance with this Act and authorised to issue electronic money or that holds an equivalent authorisation in another country in terms of the Electronic Money Directive to issue electronic money”.

Why opt for an EMI?

It is efficient and competitive. In order to operate, businesses require at least one fully operational bank account to be able to handle business transactions. In the post-Covid era, and following strict AML/CFT rules, most businesses opted for this type of bank account as customers are offered a quicker alternative which is also handy and readily available through a smartphone app.
