19th April 2017 - Wednesday 

Event:   Lecture - Family Business Act

Time:   1.00pm

Venue:   Chamber of Advocates

Speaker:   Dr Nadine Lia

Fee: TBA Euro 10.00

Abstract

It has long been recognised that family businesses are an indispensable asset for Malta and Europe‘s economic prosperity. Family businesses generate economic growth and employment and provide lasting stability. At the same time, it has equally been recognised around the world that family businesses face unique challenges that require the full attention of the legislator and policy makers.

Family business succession is the most challenging process that family businesses must undergo, since, if not properly undertaken, it might result in the end of the family business.

Financial issues and lack of proper governance structures are the main reasons why family businesses fail this succession process and why the European Commission has long been calling upon Member States to address this legislative and functional void by policy makers.

The main recommendation that this new legislation the Family Business Act which came into force on the 1st January 2017 proposes is to allow businesses to structure and register themselves and acquire the status of a family business with the opportunity to benefit from such structure and identity.

Furthermore, the legislation also seeks to regulate and establish parameters within which family businesses are to govern and operate the family businesses to help them pursue succession and an effective transfer of the family business. The legislation is intended to establish operational benchmarks so that family businesses can further achieve their aims.
