Employment Tax in Malta

Maltese law requires employers employing persons to carry out work in Malta to withhold tax on the gross emoluments their employees receive through their employment. The amount represents the payments due by each employee for income tax and social security contributions on the gross income received during the relevant year of assessment. The amounts withheld are remitted to the Inland Revenue Department. The system is referred to locally as the Final Settlement System which replaced the previous pay-as-you-earn (PAYE) system.

As a firm we have acted for a considerable number of financial services and i-gaming firms and are therefore very well placed to assist operators in these sectors with their employment law questions. In particular we can assist clients in obtaining beneficial tax treatment under Malta's rules for highly qualified persons operating in the financial services and i-gaming spheres, securing low flat rates of tax for key personnel in these organizations.
