Individuals not domiciled in Malta, who establish tax residency in Malta, are able to apply for and receive a Malta tax residency certificate for presentation to foreign tax authorities; Malta does not a apply a worldwide basis of taxation to those individuals that are resident but not domiciled in Malta, such as those that have obtained Maltese citizenship by investment. In such cases, taxation will only be levied on Malta source income and foreign source income received in Malta, with capital gains arising outside Malta remaining outside of the Maltese tax net, even if received in Malta.
Malta also offers various attractive tax residency programmes which provide an attractive fixed tax rate of 15% if certain conditions and obligations are met.
