VAT Advisory

Malta VAT Advisory

Value Added Tax is perhaps the most complicated and often dangerously ignored or 'underestimated' tax regime. We can take the burden of VAT compliance off your business shoulders by advising you on VAT issues and compliance procedures, completing your quarterly or annual VAT returns and ensuring their timely submission to the VAT Department.

Our tax lawyers and accountants advise on Value Added Tax implications involved in providing vatable supplies of goods and services in Malta or in Europe via a Maltese company.  Our VAT specialists are always ready to advise on the requirement of registration of foreign operators as VAT taxable persons in Malta for e-commerce and brick and mortar establishments. We also provide professional advice on the right VAT treatment required in a particular transaction and handle Value Added Tax compliance and VAT refunds administration for Malta companies.

VAT in Malta: Overview

As a full EU member state Malta is part of the EU system for VAT and implements the relevant VAT directives. A specific act of parliament and a number of subsidiary legislations promulgate the relevant rules, which are administered by the Department for Value Added Tax. The standard rate of VAT is 18%, but there are reduced rates for a number of products. All companies with a Malta VAT number are required to submit (typically on a quarterly basis) returns indicating supplies and inputs.

Our Malta VAT Advisory Services

Our firm provides a number of important services to its clients with respect to VAT matters, including VAT registration, management of relations with the VAT department and handling of periodic VAT returns. 

Should clients wish, we can also carry out a VAT scan which consists of an evaluation of the VAT processes and procedures within a business activity. The main reason would be to propose to the client recommendations to update and reorganise the VAT affairs of the corporation and reduce possible forthcoming complications with the VAT Department. Through this exercise we also seek to detect potential opportunities of achieving VAT savings and optimisation.
