Malta keeps its regulatory framework in sync with the changing demands of the industry and in line with the requirements laid out at EU level.

Most of the companies incorporated in Malta are subject to a corporate tax rate of 35%. However, the Malta Tax System is a full imputation system which may result in a shareholder claiming a 6/7th tax refund on any tax paid by the company on profits distributed as dividends.
