Malta has evolved into a brand recognized for its excellence in financial services; due to its attractive cost and tax efficient base for financial service operators looking for an EU-compliant as well as a flexible domicile. Among its tax efficiency benefits, one can also find a full imputation system, double taxation treaties with over 50 countries and refundable tax credit schemes on revenues as dividends to shareholders, resident and non-resident.

Excellence: Financial Services in Malta

Malta has established itself as a globally recognized financial country thanks to its financial services and financial intermediation. In fact, currently, the related sectors represent around the 12% of the country´s GPD. Combined with a low cost financing of investment transactions and its international business connections, Malta is increasing its number of financial services operators rapidly. 

Malta´s financial services are regulated by the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) which is responsible for all the financial service licensing. The structure of the MFSA is based on international practice, with the aim of providing a regulatory framework of the highest level.

Malta is also actively involved in international developments of regulatory policy with engagements at OECD, EU and Commonwealth level; ranking amongst the highest positions due to its efficient financial regulation.
