Why invest in Malta?
The island of Malta has its own rustic beauty. Its flourishing business sector has brought about a positive change in the quality of life and standard of living. This progression has been gradual, strategic and effective over the past few decades.
Located at the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Malta is connected to two continents: Africa and Europe with direct access to the Middle East as well. It is a rich hotbed of varied cultures, history and tradition. As most European cities are only a couple of hours’ away by flight, you will have a geographical advantage. Enjoy proximity to your business partners and clients.
The planning authorities and the government have undertaken many reforms to transform Malta’s economy from a labour intensive one to a knowledge based one. It has attracted foreign direct investment, especially as the work force comes with lower direct labour costs as compared to the rest of the EU.
English speaking nation (and more languages)
As Malta’s second official language is English, almost all Maltese people are bilingual. The rich, multi-lingual atmosphere eases local operations and lowers barriers in communication.
Sun, sea and sand
Relocating to Malta is a dream come true for many. The charm of the Mediterranean lifestyle, clear-blue sea and bright, sunny weather pulls in individuals from different corners of the globe. It is a great incentive for employees to move to Malta and set up a business there or enjoy the perks of working on the island. A weekend getaway to Gozo (Malta’s sister island) or a refreshing dip in the aqua blue waters of Comino are two of many ways how domestic residents spend their free time.
Malta is home to many different nationalities and enjoys a versatile, specialised workforce. Malta offers a high qualified education leading to qualified workers. Companies in Malta will profit from professional workers and motivated employees.
Access to the EU
Imagine setting up an operational base in one country but having access to 28 different markets! As the gateway to Europe, you will have the benefit of marketing your products and services at a “local” level.
Innovative technical infrastructure
Constant, reliable connectivity is available as the ICT infrastructure is state of the art. There are supplementary e-commerce services available that facilitate the business sector, such as companies that offer online payments. With a broad scope of such providers to choose from, your business can benefit from great solutions!
Tax-friendly financial Centre
The fiscal industry is regulated by the Malta Financial Services authority and has an effective structural framework. Investment funds, insurance sectors and wealth management firms are some of the companies that enjoy great benefits in functioning here. The corporate tax is 35% that can be diminished to 0-5%. With different programmes that involve shareholders who do not live in Malta helps achieve this. Large auditing businesses have set up a base here as well.
Also in Malta, the rate for corporate tax is a flat 35%. And shareholders receive dividends, then they may qualify for a refund that is approximately 6/7th of the actual tax paid, and declines to a paid tax rate of 5%. This makes Malta an attractive tax-friendly location.
All in all, Malta enjoys a reasonable cost of living (relatively low), a gorgeous climate, a growing international, talented workforce and great taxes, it is no wonder that companies choose to relocate here. Many different styles of residential properties are available as well that cater to a variety of budgets and styles. The commercial real estate sector is growing and there are many different kinds of offices available for rent or sale.
If you relocate to Malta, not only will you enjoy the sun personally, it will brighten up your work life as well! With many different kinds of commercial properties, you will have a wide pool of premises to choose from. Literally, there is something for everyone!
This is ideal for a young, start-up company as these serviced commercial spaces can be rented based on days, weeks and months. You can even hire meeting rooms to conduct interviews for your new staff. This provides great flexibility and convenience.
And we also have traditional brick and mortar office spaces available. These can be shaped as per your taste, style and preferences. Give it your own branding and professional touch! Of course, this will take a little bit more time.
