Malta does not only have a developed tourism industry, but also a leading financial industry. It is known as a "European tax haven" and "southern Europe Switzerland". It is not only a non global taxation country, but also enjoys the preferential policy of four taxes: exemption from real estate tax, net wealth tax, inheritance tax and gift tax. For those who set up companies in Malta, they are not only supported by favorable tax policies, which can guarantee tax relief, but also enjoy EU tariff subsidies.


Benefits of Registering a Malta Company

1. The "four in one" country in the world: a member of Schengen, EU, Euro and the British Commonwealth. Holders of Maltese passports are free to enter and leave many countries in Europe and the Commonwealth without a visa.

2. Stable political and economic situation: creating a good environment for foreign investors.

3. Europe's famous tax paradise: no inheritance tax, no global tax. The Maltese tax system is very favorable for long-term residents.

The physical assets brought into Malta within half a year after the immigration approval are not subject to tax.

4. The social security system is relatively complete: the implementation of free education, free medical care and retirement insurance system.

5. You can enjoy confidentiality of company information.

6. The company is based on the judicial system of the United Kingdom, and the official language is mainly English.
