Understanding Today's Needs
Doing business today is in many ways vastly different than what it was 20 or 30 years ago. Deregulation, internationalisation and the advancement of technology have created a new reality for entrepreneurs. This is exciting. The future is up for grabs. There are enormous opportunities for entrepreneurs today. St Matthew as a firm has fully embraced this new reality and we help our clients to reach their goals and put their vision into practise.
Part of becoming a client of St Matthew is to buy into a process. We have figured this out. There is a structure in place that ensures things get done on time. With accountancy details matter. Deadlines matter. Where defined processes provide a framework for service delivery one can cater for the unexpected. Indeed only a strong and reliable set of rules puts order into things. This way our staff have the peace of mind to provide a personal, attentive service to our clients.
We love technology. It sounds a bit cheesy. It doesn’t mean though to have a nice website and our own iPhone app. St Matthew has many clients from the technology and internet sector. Why? Because it’s the technology that makes the new reality possible. It means a business in the UK can work with freelancers in Asia. It means a UK company can sell their products to the US effortlessly. And it means you can live anywhere and can run your business from anywhere. It’s our mission to help you make it all all happen.

Doing Business in Malta
February 18th, 2014 at 3pm
Malta is the country in the European Union with the lowest effective corporation tax rate: It’s just 5%. Naturally this attracts a lot of international businesses to Malta. There are a good number of daily flights from the UK to Malta, English is the official language of the country and as a former part of the empire the legal system is pretty much the same as in the UK. This makes Malta particularly interesting for UK entrepreneurs looking to open a subsidiary outside the UK. In this free webinar we explore how to do business in Malta, what you need to do to get started and what else is important to know.
