Insights from the Boardroom

###SALUTATION### ###USER_firstname###,

Today we proudly present to you our new internal newsletter: InterNews. We have known for quite some time that the InterGest network needs to increase and improve its internal communication - so voilà, here it is, our first step towards a new era! Our goal is to send out InterNews on a quarterly basis. You are therefore all cordially invited to make this new medium a success through your contributions: Kai Currlin will be more than happy to receive input from you such as new clients, planned trade fairs, new projects, important news about your country etc. so we can share your news with the entire InterGest group.

Enjoy the read! We look very much forward to seeing InterNews become a highly valued communication platform for our network.

With best regards
Peter, Nils & Alberto

May we introduce you to our new InterGest partner for Malta, Chris Amstrong and Thomas Jacobsen.

Thomas relocated to Malta in 1997 and spent 10 years working within tax advisory at PwC before leaving to set up his own advisory firm. He has assisted and advised a number of international and local clients with their tax compliance requirements, corporate structure requirements and on various cross border issues.


Chris Armstrong is also Director of InterGest Malta. He is a Chartered Certified Accountant with a strong commercial and financial services background. After working in London for 10 years, Chris relocated to Malta in 2008 and has worked primarily in the areas of personal and corporate taxation and has provided advisory and technical support to foreign companies setting up operations in Malta.

Update on Cooperations

The cooperation with AIMS turns out already quite fruitful! Please <media 6779 - - "TEXT, 180627 Inter Gest AIMS Flyer PRINT, 180627_InterGest_AIMS_Flyer_PRINT.pdf, 2.3 MB">find here the flyer</media> that introduces AIMS and InterGest services combined. After our mailing to our InterGest clients, Briloner(IG client) has placed the first order with AIMS.

The conquering of new markets is a vital component of the growth strategy of middlesized companies, and within IG we know better than anybody else what kind of challenges these companies have to meet when going abroad. Identifying the right country in which to expand is a critical first step which needs to be based on correct and valid information. Together with DTO we are conducting a study (in Germany, „Internationalisierung des deutschen Mittelstands“) to find out which countries/regions German companies consider appropriate for their expansion and where they see the biggest obstacles.
