More About Maltsa

Over a number of years, the Maltese jurisdiction has established itself as the best destination for entrepreneurs, particularly due to its status as a cost and tax-efficient jurisdiction for international business and investment.

The expense of setting up and running a company in Malta is reasonably low compared to other European jurisdictions. Malta adopts a system of tax refunds that significantly lowers the effective tax rate to 5%, this is the lowest in the European Union. Companies from the IT, gaming and corporate sectors have embarked into this initiative to set up shop in Malta and benefit from these financial benefits.

Malta also offers a prime strategic geographical location with the majority of the workforce highly skilled and English speaking. It has political stability, and an exceptional communications structure which makes it the ideal place to run your business.
