Taxes for individuals living and working in Malta

In the first place, we mention that foreigners working in Malta will only pay the taxes on the salaries obtained in this country. As for the nationals in this state, the taxation is imposed on the worldwide income. In respect to the tax legislation, wages in Malta represent all incomes gained through varied resources and are levied in accordance. The social security contribution in Malta is set at 20% for each employed individual, and it is paid by companies and employees in equal amount. A 0.3% tax contribution represents the funds for the maternity leave.
As for sole traders in Malta, they must pay the social security contribution in 3 parts representing 15% calculated on the annual net profits. We mention that Malta respects the EU legislation regarding the taxation on incomes obligatory for all country members.

Details about the ordinary residence taxation scheme

The personal income tax for persons with residence permits in Malta are subject to a progressive rate which does not exceed 35%. This is available and imposed on profits obtained in the country or abroad which are registered through a bank account in Malta. With the ordinary residence taxation scheme which offers admission to the remittance-based tax structure, persons do not need to pay income taxes for profits gained outside Malta and registered through a foreign bank account.
