Taxation in Malta includes both corporate and personal taxes. Here is an overview of the taxation system in Malta:
- Companies registered in Malta are subject to a corporate income tax rate of 35% on their worldwide income, but certain exemptions and deductions may apply.
- A full imputation system is in place, meaning that shareholders receiving dividends are entitled to a tax credit for the corporate tax already paid by the company on the profits out of which the dividends are paid. This results in a reduced effective tax rate for shareholders.
- Corporate tax returns must be filed annually, within 9 months from the end of the company's financial year.
- The payment of corporate income tax is due in two equal installments: the first installment by April 30 and the second installment by December 31 of the tax year.
- Residents of Malta are subject to a personal income tax rate ranging from 0% to 35%, depending on their income level.
- Non-residents are only subject to tax on their Malta-sourced income.
- Personal income tax returns must be filed annually, by June 30 of the year following the tax year.
- Personal income tax payments are generally made through monthly withholding by employers or quarterly advance payments by self-employed individuals.
Value Added Tax (VAT):
- The standard rate of VAT in Malta is 18%, with reduced rates of 7% and 5% applicable to certain goods and services.
- VAT returns must be filed every three months, by the end of the month following the end of the VAT period.
Tax Payment Process:
- Taxpayers in Malta can make tax payments through banks or online payment systems.
- Taxpayers must file their tax returns and make their tax payments by the deadlines mentioned above.
- The Maltese tax authorities may conduct audits to ensure compliance with tax laws.
In summary, companies in Malta are subject to a corporate income tax rate of 35%, but certain exemptions and deductions may apply. Residents of Malta are subject to a personal income tax rate ranging from 0% to 35%, and non-residents are only subject to tax on their Malta-sourced income.
