Taking up Residence in Malta

Warm climate, friendly people, excellent communication infrastructures, low criminality and many other features of the Maltese islands have made Malta an excellent destination for people to take up residence in.

Moreover low rates of taxation on income remitted to Malta ensures that people can transfer income to Malta and be subject to relatively lower rates of taxation than those applicable in other EU jurisdictions.  Maltese residents may also claim relief from double taxation in terms of Malta’s extensive tax treaty network for the avoidance of double taxation, thus ensuring that the same income will not be subject to tax twice in two different jurisdictions.

Malta has in place different schemes which may be applicable to you depending on your nationality, the type of income you earn and the reason for taking up residence in Malta.
