Benefits of Malta Residence Permit
Favourable Tax Rates
One of the biggest draws for entrepreneurs looking to relocate to Malta is the country’s favourable tax rates for residents. Additionally, there are no wealth or capital gains taxes in Malta. This makes it an attractive option for entrepreneurs looking to minimise their tax liability.
Access to Markets
Another reason why Malta is such a popular destination for entrepreneurs is its access to markets. Maltese businesses have access to consumers within the European Union. Additionally, companies based in Malta can benefit from trade agreements between the EU and other countries.
Quality of Life
In addition to favourable tax rates and access to markets, another draw for those looking to relocate to Malta is the country’s high quality of life. Maltese cities are clean and safe, and the climate is pleasant year-round. The cost of living in Malta is also relatively low compared to other developed countries.
When you factor in all of these factors – favourable tax rates, access to markets, quality of life – it is no wonder that more and more are choosing Malta as their home base.
