Chetcuti Cauchi's team of Corporate Tax Advisors reflects the firm's fundamental ethos of bringing together specialists from different academic backgrounds to maximise on the strengths of the legal and accounting professions. Taxation straddles both areas of finance and law and corporate tax lawyers can work with tax advisors with an accounting background to provide higher value tax advice to international clients using Malta Companies in international tax planning or in better structuring one's commercial operations or wealth using Malta.

The Maltese Corporate Tax System: An Overview

A number of factors have seen Malta achieve significant growth as a centre for international business, including its geographical location, English speaking workforce, approachable regulators, and generally low cost base. In addition, the country has a sophisticated and effective tax system. Corporate entities domiciled in the jurisdiction, for example, benefit from a very wide network of double tax treaties which ensures that international business is not subject to tax in two different jurisdictions. The network of treaties includes treaties with key economies such as: China, France, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Qatar, Luxembourg and Australia.

Corporate tax in Malta is set at 35% of the net profits generated by the company. Various forms of relief are available in the context of double taxation. A system of refunds is also in place and can offer some significant mitigations to the overall tax liability. The country also employs a participating holding exemption regime allowing dividends and capital gains on disposal of such holdings to be exempt from tax when received by the Malta company usually set up as a Malta holding company.
