Malta offers very attractive residence fiscal regimes to non-domiciled individuals with associated tax advantages. We can assist with the application for a Permanent Resident Scheme Certificate as well as assist in the annual compliance requirements arising from such certificate. Foreigners becoming resident under this scheme are taxed at a flat rate of 15% with a minimum tax liability of €4,192. While this scheme applies only to expats who do not engage themselves in gainfully occupied positions in Malta.
Malta claims worldwide taxation rights on persons both resident and domiciled in Malta. Therefore a foreign domiciled resident would be taxed to the standard tax rates on income derived and earned in Malta however any income that is earned outside of Malta but is not received in or remitted to Malta will not be taxed in Malta. Furthermore, Malta does not impose taxes on capital so capital derived from outside Malta and remitted to Malta will not be subject to tax in Malta.
The above fiscal principles together with Malta’s excellent Mediterranean climate make Malta a very attractive jurisdiction for retirees or high net worth individuals.
