How to register the company for tax purposes in Malta

 
Each business that involves hiring employees should obtain the PE number in Malta which is issued by the Department of Inland Revenue and represents the legal way to retain and pay the taxes linked to the national insurance of staff. The taxes paid by companies in Malta are in accordance with the final settlement tax reporting procedures under the Social Security Act of 1987. The national insurance contributions are important in each kind of company, therefore complying with the rules and regulations at the beginning of company incorporation in Malta will lead to a fast start in the chosen business field in the country.
 

Register for VAT in Malta

 
The VAT in Malta which at the moment is set at a 18% rate (7% in the tourism sector, 5% for certain foods, medical services, electricity) is imposed for each company that registers economic activities in the country, sole proprietorships included under certain conditions. Businesses dealing with the supply of goods and/or services must respect the requirements related to the VAT registration. The VAT Department in Malta, through the local offices, receives the company’s documents, whether enterprises or sole proprietorships and the ID copies of the representative of the business. The PE number is also required when registering for VAT in Malta. We mention that for opening a company in Malta, comprehensive information and guidance can be provided by our team of advisors.
