The session will introduce Maltese/EU Competition law to the attendees, explaining the importance and relevance of the subject, and why competition law considerations may come into play in a variety of different scenarios.

Specific topics to be covered during the session

Topics covered with will include
(i) anti-competitive agreements and collusive practices
(ii) market dominance & abuse of “dominant position” 
(iii) merger control in Malta. The topics will be explained using practical, day-to-day examples which are of relevance to accountants and accountancy professionals.-.

Why is the session of relevance to our members?

Accountants in decision-making roles such as management, finance or sales, and/or accountants providing advisory/consultancy services should be aware of the different competition law ramifications which can arise in the course of a company’s operations, in particular, when such company holds a position of “dominance” in a particular market (as defined). Joint ventures, mergers or acquisitions may also lead to notification obligations and merger control clearance required in terms of applicable law. The session aims to introduce members to the most relevant principles and rules which may come into play, ensuring that companies act in compliance with applicable law, avoiding fines and regulatory action which can be taken by the relevant national competition authority.

Target Audience

Accountants and finance professionals, particularly those in managerial/directorship/decision-making roles.
