Value Added Tax (VAT)

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.

Our tax lawyers advise on Value Added Tax implications involved in providing vattable supplies of goods and services in Malta or in Europe via a Maltese company.  We also advise on the requirement of registration of foreign operators as VAT taxable persons in Malta for e-commerce and brick and mortar establishments.

Our Accounting & Tax Unit arm also handles Value Added Tax compliance and VAT refunds administration for Malta companies.
