Living in Malta

If you’re a UK national living in or thinking about moving to Malta, you could enjoy some significant tax advantages.

The Maltese tax system is different from that in the UK and many other countries, particularly for non-domiciled individuals. There are various residence programmes available to people moving to Malta that can limit the tax you have to pay and protect certain assets from taxation. We can help you weigh up the most favourable options for you and your personal circumstances.

As with any wealth and estate planning, the starting point is to understand what the rules are and then establish how you can use them to your benefit.

With personalised financial advice from Blevins Franks, you can make the most of what you have while keeping up with the complex tax rules in both Malta and the UK.

Estate planning

While there’s no inheritance or gift tax in Malta, there are stamp duty charges on the transfer of real estate and some Maltese shares.

Maltese law also applies ‘forced heirship’ rules on real estate. This means that your spouse and children will inherit a certain proportion of your property, regardless of what your will says. We can present legitimate options to ensure your estate is distributed according to your exact wishes while protecting your heirs from paying more tax than necessary.
