Malta Audits: Addressing Challenges with Expertise

Malta’s business landscape flourishes with a vibrant tourism industry, a robust financial services sector, and enticing residency and tax benefits. These factors create a highly rewarding environment for entrepreneurs seeking to establish and grow their ventures. However, achieving long-term success requires a strong foundation, and that’s where effective auditing comes into play. It ensures the financial health of businesses, identifies potential issues, and fosters transparency – all crucial elements for sustained growth.


Unfortunately, CPA firms in Malta currently face various challenges in the auditing process. This article delves into these specific roadblocks and explores how Buchprufer steps in to provide solutions.

Challenges Faced by CPA Firms During Malta Audits

To conduct effective audits, CPA firms’ requirements must be fulfilled to ensure the success of Malta audits. However, firms are currently facing a number of challenges:

  • i. Lack of Skilled Workforce: Malta’s rapid economic growth has surged demand for skilled auditors, but the pool of qualified professionals isn’t expanding as needed. Thus, the Audit firms face challenges in finding and retaining talent, leading to audit delays.

  • ii. Investment in Training: The audit firms invest significantly in training new hires to equip them with the latest auditing skills and knowledge. For example, with the increasing adoption of ESG frameworks in companies, extra training is required to ensure compliance and expertise in these areas. These training needs represent a substantial financial investment add as an extra challenge.

  • iii. High Staff Turnover: Even with significant investment in training programs, Audit firms often face high staff turnover, making it difficult to retain newly trained auditors and perpetuating a cycle of resource expenditure.

  • iv. Regulatory Compliance: The regulatory environment in Malta is stringent, requiring firms to adhere to rigorous standards. This heightened scrutiny increases the complexity and demands of the auditing process.

  • v. Meeting Urgent Requirements: The Audit firms must often respond quickly to urgent audit needs, which can be difficult to manage effectively given the existing constraints on talent and resources.
