In all other circumstances, the maximum withholding tax should be no more than 15 per cent.

No withholding tax is charged on dividends paid by a company in Malta to a shareholder resident in the Ukraine (as a result of domestic law provisions).

The double tax treaty between Malta and the Ukraine sets out a maximum withholding tax of 10 per cent on interest paid to the beneficial owner thereof.

No withholding tax is charged on interest paid by a Malta resident person to a person resident in the Ukraine (as a result of domestic law provisions).

No withholding tax is charged on royalties paid by a Malta resident person to a person resident in the Ukraine (as a result of domestic law provisions).

Other income
