The 183 Days Rule represents the maximum number of days you can be physically present in a country. After that, your income tax liability comes into place. Generally, individuals who spend more than six months in Malta in a calendar year are likely to be Maltese tax residents. One of the best options for a special tax status is the Malta Global Residence Programme.

  • Beneficiaries are taxable at the rate of 15% on foreign source income remitted to Malta.   
  • Foreign source capital gains are not taxable even if remitted to Malta.   
  • Possibility to claim double taxation relief.   
  • Malta source income is charged as separate income at the rate of 35%.
