Company Law

Value Added Tax VAT of Malta Company

As a full member of the European Union since the 1st May 2004, Malta  forms part of the EU VAT system.  Malta companies registered for VAT in Malta are given an EU VAT number which renders them able to trade within the European Union.  As a prerequisite for VAT registration in Malta, Malta companies must be managed and controlled from Malta.

VAT does not have a major impact on VAT registered Malta companies because most of the VAT they charge or pay will be ‘neutral’ under the reverse charge mechanism and VAT paid by these companies for services and supplies received can be set-off as output vat against their input VAT.
