WHY MALTA

The Republic of Malta is situated in the centre of the Mediterranean, south of Sicily, east of Tunisia and north of Libya. Malta gained its independence from the United Kingdom in 1964 and became a republic in 1974. Since 1964 it has been a member of the United Nations and in 2004 it joined as a member of the European Union. Malta is also party to the Schengen Agreement and in 2008 it became part of the eurozone.

Malta’s strategic geographical location and its membership of the European Union plays a very important part in its economic, political and cultural development and its prosperity today. The island's increasing relevance as a corporate services and business centre is attributable to several factors. The network of double taxation treaties to which Malta is signatory and the solid and comprehensive legislative framework which provides a sound basis for conducting business activities, particularly in the financial services, shipping and online gaming sectors, have contributed substantially to Malta's successful development as an international business centre.

With its highly educated English-speaking workforce and the competitive cost of professional services, Malta has become firmly established as a reputable business and financial centre offering attractive business solutions for individuals and international corporations alike.

UTILISING MALTA FOR INTERNATIONAL TRADE

The benefits of Malta are obvious and should seriously be considered by anyone looking to trade in or with the European Union or create a very favourable holding structure.

Malta has a vibrant and strong economy and has long been viewed as a gateway for investment in or out of Europe. Malta is ideally placed to facilitate international business. Malta is a full member of the European Union and has enacted very favourable tax legislation that enables clients to trade or hold assets in a low cost and low tax environment. The Maltese Company, a highly effective corporate entity with which to carry out cross border trade and investment would typically benefit from a combined corporate effective tax rate, ranging between 0% and 5%.

The Maltese company is used extensively for cross border European trade and/or as a holding structure.

In the latter circumstances, capital gains and dividends derived by a Malta company from a qualifying participating holding in a subsidiary (typically a holding of more than 10% of the equity shares in a subsidiary) would be wholly exempt from tax in Malta. A Malta company is therefore commonly used to hold interests in other foreign corporations, often enabling the free flow of dividends and capital gains from the foreign corporations to Malta, without Withholding Tax, by utilising Malta's excellent double tax treaty network (comprising 59 treaties currently in force) and/or the EU Parent-Subsidiary Directive.

A Malta company would otherwise be subject to tax in Malta on its non-exempt chargeable profits (including trading profits) at the flat corporate rate of 35%. However, pursuant to a distribution of dividends by a Malta company in favour of its shareholder/s, the said shareholder/s would generally be entitled (by extension of Malta's full imputation system) to a refund of 6/7ths of the Malta tax suffered at the level of the Malta company on profits out of which the dividends were distributed. As a result, the combined overall effective Malta tax rate is applicable in respect of non-exempt income would be reduced to 5%.

A company incorporated in Malta would be deemed to be a tax resident Company and would, accordingly, be entitled to access Malta's large network of double tax treaties. A Malta resident Director or Company Secretary is not required.

Depending on the nature of its activities, a Malta company may be required or entitled to be registered for VAT in Malta. A company set up as a pure holding company would be outside the scope of VAT.

BUSINESS LICENSING IN MALTA

MALTA ONLINE GAMING LICENSE

BUYING PROPERTY IN MALTA

The acquisition of immovable property in Malta may be subject to certain restrictions for non-resident persons. In terms of Chapter 246 of the Laws of Malta, the Immovable Property (Acquisition by Non-Residents) Act or, the “AIP Act”, non-resident persons are defined as:

  • any individual who is not a citizen of Malta or of another Member State; or
  • a citizen of Malta or of another Member State, even in either case, if in possession of a valid residence permit, who has not been resident in Malta for a minimum continuous period of five years at any time preceding the date of acquisition; or
  • any body or other association of persons, and any authority, institution, organisation, fund, firm and any other entity whatsoever, whether corporate or not, if incorporated or registered in, has its registered address under the laws of, a state other than Malta or another Member State; or 25% or more of its share or other capital is owned by a non-resident person or is registered in the name of a trustee for the benefit of a non-resident person; or it is in any manner and whether directly or indirectly controlled by one or more nonresident persons, amongst other.
  • In cases where a person or body corporate would fall under the definition of non-resident, the buyers would have to apply for a permit to acquire immovable property in Malta (the AIP Permit).

The AIP Permit

Citizens of EU member states who have resided in Malta continuously for a minimum period of five years at any time preceding the date of acquisition may freely acquire immovable property without the necessity of obtaining an AIP permit for such acquisition.

Citizens of EU member states who have not resided continuously in Malta for a minimum period of 5 years can purchase their primary residence without an AIP permit. However, the acquisition of a secondary residence will require an AIP permit.

Individuals who are not citizens of a European member state may not acquire any immovable property unless they are granted a permit, or any one of the exemptions listed below is satisfied.

The Exemptions

The above restrictions in terms of the AIP Act do not apply to purchase of property in the “special designated areas”, which areas represent developments intended to provide top-end residential properties.

The restrictions are not applicable also in respect of the following (amongst other):

  • any immovable property devolving causa mortis on any person, wherever resident, provided that the person from whom the property devolves had acquired such immovable property, where applicable, in accordance with the provisions of the AIP Act; or
  • the acquisition of any further divided or undivided share in immovable property by any person, wherever resident, where such person had previously lawfully acquired a share in such immovable property; or
  • the transfer of immovable property in an inheritance between co-heirs; or
  • the partition of immovable property between co-owners.

The Special Designated Areas (to date – June 2012) are the following:

  • Portomaso Development, St. Julian’s, Malta
  • Portomaso Extension I, St Julians, Malta
  • Cottonera Development, Cottonera, Malta
  • Manoel Island / Tigne Point, Tigne/ Gzira, Malta
  • Tas-Sellum Residence, Mellieha, Malta
  • Madliena Village Complex, Malta
  • Smartcity, Malta
  • Fort Cambridge Zone, Tignè, Malta
  • Ta’ Monita Residence, Marsascala, Malta
  • Pender Place and Mercury House Site, Malta
  • Pender Place and Mercury House Site, Extensions I, II, III, IV and V, Malta
  • Metropolis Plaza, Gzira, Malta
  • Fort Chambray, Ghajnsielem, Gozo
  • Kempinski Residences, San Lawrenz, Gozo

The Acquisition Process

Where property is purchased, the acquisition process would initially involve a preliminary agreement also known as promise of sale agreement, which is signed by the parties, and then finally in terms of which the parties mutually undertake to enter the final deed of sale (generally made subject to the satisfaction of certain specific conditions which must be clearly stated in the preliminary agreement, such as the issuance of an AIP permit and obtaining the bank loan). The promise of sale must be registered with the Inland Revenue Department within 21 days of its execution, together with a payment equivalent to 1% of the consideration of the property.

A sum of 10% is usually paid by the purchaser on the day that the promise of sale is signed, either by way of deposit on account of the price or by way of earnest, although the parties may make any other arrangement as they consider appropriate. This 10% deposit is retained by the Notary Public responsible for the publication of the final deed of sale.

The promise of sale may be valid for any period of time agreed upon by, and between the parties, but would usually be for a period of between 3 to 6 months. During this time period, legal title in the property concerned is established through the necessary notarial searches and AIP formalities are finalised in anticipation of the publication of the final deed of sale. Once such formalities are complied with, and the time period decided upon between the parties lapses (as established above), the final deed of sale is duly read by the notary public to the parties and signed in his presence.

All relevant duties and taxes in respect of the final deed of sale, must be paid to the notary public (who collects such funds on behalf of the Inland Revenue Department) at the same time as the publication of the final deed.

Renting Immovable Property in Malta

The renting of a property in Malta would involve a written lease agreement setting out the general terms and conditions governing the rental of the property in question, namely a description of the property, the payment of rent, the warranty of all necessary permits by the landlord, the provision of any security or damage deposit/s, the renewal of the lease period upon expiration and other matters of similar importance.

MALTA AIRCRAFT SOLUTIONS

Malta offers an array of aviation services relating to the registration of aircraft and aircraft mortgages, financing and management of aircraft, insurance, brokerage, aircraft maintenance, classification and surveying of aircraft. Increasingly recognised as a flag of confidence by the maritime and aviation industries, Malta offers owners and operators of commercial and private jets tax efficiency, a robust regulatory framework and industry expertise, capabilities and facilities in a central European location.

The main advantages of registering your aircraft in Malta include:

  • Recognition of fractional ownership of aircraft so that title may be divided between co-owners in specified fractions or percentages which may each be financed by a different creditor taking security over the particular fractional interest for which finance has been provided;
  • No withholding tax on lease payments where the lessor is not a tax resident of Malta;
  • Tax refunds to shareholders on distribution of profits;
  • Extensive network of double taxation treaties;
  • The private use of an aircraft by an individual who is not resident in Malta and is an employee/officer of an employer/company/partnership whose business activities include the ownership/leasing/operation of aircraft used for international transport does not constitute a taxable fringe benefit;
  • Competitive minimum depreciation periods for aircraft;
  • Applicability of the provisions of the Cape Town Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment and its Aircraft Protocol thereby granting secured lenders a higher degree of protection and more effective remedies whilst allowing lower borrowing costs;
  • Possibility of registering aircraft under construction once uniquely identifiable with airworthiness surveys suspended until the completion of the aircraft;
  • Facilitation of enforcement of mortgages and other security interests;
  • Availability of a wide range of airline services (aircraft and engine maintenance, repair and overhaul, aircraft management, aircraft maintenance training and other ancillary support services).

Important Tax Considerations

an aviation company incorporated in Malta would be subject to tax in Malta on its worldwide income at 35%. However, non-resident shareholders would, by application of Malta’s refundable tax credit system, be entitled to a refund of 6/7ths of the Malta tax suffered on the profits out of which dividends are distributed – thus reducing the combined overall effective Malta tax rate from 35% to 5%.

On the other hand, an aviation company incorporated outside Malta but which is controlled and managed in/from Malta would be treated as resident in Malta for tax purposes and would, accordingly, be subject to tax in Malta only on:

  • chargeable income arising in Malta;
  • chargeable income arising outside Malta to the extent that such income is remitted to Malta (remittance basis);
  • chargeable gains realised in Malta.
  • Chargeable gains realised outside Malta would not be taxable in Malta even if remitted to Malta.
    • Income derived by any person who owns, leases or operates any aircraft or aircraft engine which is used or employed in the international transport of passengers or goods, is deemed to arise outside Malta for Malta tax purposes. Such income is deemed to arise outside Malta regardless:

      • of the country of registration of the relevant aircraft or aircraft engine; or
      • as to whether the aircraft may have called at, or operated from, any airport in Malta.
        • Accordingly, any company incorporated outside Malta but resident in Malta for tax purposes (controlled and managed in or from Malta), and which derives income from the ownership, leasing or operation of aircraft or aircraft engines, would only be chargeable to tax in Malta if and to the extent that such income is remitted to Malta (Malta’s refundable tax credit system would likewise apply in respect of such taxable income such that the combined overall effective Malta tax rate applicable in respect of such income should not exceed 5%).

          In addition, no Malta tax would be chargeable on lease payments derived by non-Malta lessors from Malta lessees.

          Tax Treaty Network

          Malta has a large and expanding double tax treaty network (currently comprising 58 treaties in force). The said treaties are based largely on the OECD Model and, accordingly, generally reserve taxing rights over profits of an enterprise derived from the operation of aircraft in international traffic exclusively in favour of the country in which the place of effective management of the relevant enterprise is situated.

          As a result, profits derived by a Malta resident company from the operation of aircraft in international traffic may be taxable exclusively in Malta.

          Such exclusive jurisdiction to tax, coupled with Malta’s remittance basis of taxation applicable in respect of Malta resident companies (which are incorporated outside Malta), could present attractive tax planning opportunities for aviation companies seeking to set up or shift their tax residence to Malta.

          Aircraft and Engine Finance Leasing

          In terms of specific guidelines issued by the Malta tax authorities with a view to clarifying the Malta tax treatment applicable throughout the term of an aircraft and/or engine finance lease (not exceeding 4 years):

          • the lessor would be charged to tax on the annual finance charge (that is, the difference between the total lease payments less the capital element divided by the number of years of the lease); whilst
          • the lessee would be allowed a deduction in respect of the finance charge, maintenance costs, repairs, and insurance; and
          • the lessee would also be allowed capital allowances in respect of the aircraft although the parties would not be entitled to shift the burden of wear and tear onto the lessor; and
          • should the lessee exercise an option to purchase the aircraft on the termination of the finance lease and, additionally, provided that the lessor does not trade in the purchase and sale of aircraft, the purchase price received by the lessor would be considered to be of a capital nature such that no tax thereon would be payable by the lessor.
          • In light of the above, the leasing guidelines are relevant should the lessor and/or lessee be a Malta company (subject to tax in Malta on its worldwide income).

          Depreciation

          The minimum periods over which aircraft and parts may be depreciated for tax purposes have been lowered as follows:

          • Aircraft airframe – 6 years (16.7% per annum);
          • Engine – 6 years (16.7% per annum);
          • Engine or aircraft overhaul – 6 years (16.7% per annum);
          • Interiors and other parts – 4 years (25% per annum);

          Fringe Benefits

          Whilst fringe benefits represent income from employment for domestic tax purposes, the private use of an aircraft by a non-resident employee or officer of an employer, company or partnership whose business activities include the ownership, leasing, or operation of any one or more aircraft or aircraft engine which is used for or employed in the international transport of passengers or goods would not be deemed to constitute a fringe benefit and would, accordingly, fall outside the scope of Malta tax altogether.

          Through our professional team at OCRA Malta we can provide our assistance with a number of services in connection with the aviation industry including the incorporation of the appropriate corporate structures, registration of aircraft and aircraft mortgages, co-ordination of aircraft financing transactions, tax structuring and administration and acting as the resident agent in Malta on behalf of aircraft owners and operators.
