Lowest tax rates in Malta

Malta is not only for its low tax rates, but it is also one of Europe’s fastest developing countries. Part of this development is due to the introduction of the citizenship by investment program, accepted by the EU. In addition, Malta also introduced several residency by investments programs, to help foreigners significantly reduce their taxes.

Types of taxes in Malta

Malta does not apply a separate system of corporate tax, making a company chargeable to income tax in Malta in much the same way as an individual, at the flat rate of 35%. However, Malta does apply a full imputation system to relieve the economic double taxation arising on the taxation of dividends received by shareholders from distributions made from tax-retained earnings of Maltese companies.
