Doing business in Malta

As a member of the European Union and a hub for business from European and North African countries, Malta is regarded among the best performing Eurozone economies; with flexibility, innovation and competitiveness.

Located in the heart of the Mediterranean - virtually midway between Europe and North Africa - this multilingual, bustling business centre has one of the most favourable tax systems in the EU.

Despite a corporate tax of 35%, non-resident shareholders may qualify for tax refunds which result in an effective tax rate of 5% (post refund). Malta’s laws and regulations are aligned with those of the EU including EU Directives, which aim to reduce foreign withholding taxes. Malta is also party to over 65 double taxation agreements. Corporate structures involving Maltese companies are increasingly influencing international tax planning, and provide clear advantages for both business entities and foreign private individuals.
