The ideal platform for business with only 5% income tax!
“Due to its ideal tax system, Malta is a perfect location for registering your new business.”
Malta, one of the smallest members of the European Union, is located in the Mediterranean Sea and strategically lies between Europe and North Africa. It has excellent flight connections on a daily basis, not only to major European cities but also to the US and the Middle East. Forming part of the Schengen area, it allows easy travel between EU member states without any internal border controls.
The Maltese islands have become an important financial centre since the Maltese Governments have a tradition of encouraging foreign investors to establish businesses and operations in Malta. They have always adopted policies that favour an open economy and direct investment.
Above all, Malta is a safe and regulated yet flexible jurisdiction.

Major advantages for the registration of a company in Malta
Malta has a very attractive tax system based on refunds upon the distribution of dividends. A Malta company is taxed at 35% on profits and then can apply for 6/7 refund on the Malta tax paid, which means an actual tax rate of 5%. Malta also has around 70 double taxation agreements.
Setting up a company in Malta and maintaining it is also cost-effective when compared to other jurisdictions. Furthermore, Malta provides a sound banking system with major banks being represented with several offices and branches across the island.
