The Firm Busuttil & Micallef, is a civil partnership formed in January 2002 and registered in terms of law with the Malta Accountancy Board, mainly providing audit and assurance services. Through a separate legal entity, Areti Corporate Services Ltd., the organisation provides professional services ranging from accounting, business consultancy, VAT compliance, payroll and human resources management & recruitment, amongst others. Furthermore, through Areti Fiduciary Services Ltd. another purposely set-up company which is specifically licensed the organisation also provides specialised trustee and corporate services.
The organisation also relies and works closely with the legal firm Renald Micallef & Associates (LawPact Malta), which is headed by one of the founding partners Dr. Renald Micallef. Besides legal services, the practice also advises on direct and indirect tax matters, including expatriate and property tax issues.
The organisation personifies the consolidation of knowledge, experience, expertise and resources, aimed to convey the maximum all-encompassing benefit to its clients. The organization provides quality, personalised, and trustworthy services to its clients, with a high degree of personal attention; focusing on the specific circumstances and environment of each individual client in order that these are carefully assessed and a tailor made, appropriate and relevant solution is administered.
The organisation’s collective and relative, concise size invariably ensures the involvement of at least one ‘partner’ or director in every assignment – and this offers the clients the additional added value which offers the clients the opportunity to consider the organization as their trusted partners in their business affairs. Moreover, due to the closely knit professional team, the focus is on the quality of service, the promotion of efficient operations and value for money service. All this contributes to the continued success and strong relationship building between the organisation and its clients.
We consider ourselves as strategic partners with our clients in all their business ventures and thus we take direct interests in their plans, operating environment and performance.
We utilise our experience and exposure across diverse sectors and in different countries, to give objective and realistic advice, whilst encouraging initiative and enthusiasm where these can flourish, and also ensuring a pragmatic approach, in areas that may require reassessment, in our clients’ best interests.
We also have a primary responsibility to the professionals who assist us in servicing our clients. We ensure that our professionals are appropriately trained and confident in the areas and sectors they are assigned to – thus ensuring timely and effective delivery, and that the professionals involved are sufficiently and fairly remunerated, to promote further initiative, vision, commitment and professionalism in the services rendered.
The firms’ partners have been servicing clients throughout their professional careers and for around 100 years in aggregate between themselves. Moreover ever since the partners have drawn on their mutual support, the firm has been structured to continually provide effective and cost-efficient service to clients.
The partners’ experience, together with the support of the professionals within the organisation, enables us to add value to our clients through the services and support rendered. As business and tax advisors we listen to our clients, and take the time to develop new services to accommodate their individual
circumstances and the strategies that are deemed opportune.
Our clients benefit from our collaborative team approach to offer them our professional assistance and guidance, by understanding their specific environment and needs and then drawing on the individual skills within the firm. We also draw on the International expertise of our fellow INPACT International and LawPact member firms, throughout the globe. Our open and direct approach to communication internally and externally is an example of our committed, confident and transparent approach to our work.
