Value Added Tax (VAT) Services Malta

Understand the VAT Regulations in Malta

Operating companies must adhere to the general VAT rate of 18% for most goods and services. However, there are certain circumstances that may allow for lower rates to be applied. Regardless of the VAT rate applied, it is important for companies to ensure compliance with Maltese VAT regulations in order to avoid penalties and fines. This can include registering for VAT with the Maltese tax authorities, charging and collecting VAT on eligible taxable supplies and services, and submitting regular VAT returns. 

Seeking professional guidance on VAT services in Malta can also be helpful in ensuring compliance and managing VAT obligations effectively.

Certain industries, such as the gaming industry, can also operate without charging VAT, if they satisfy certain criteria as prescribed in the VAT Act of the laws of Malta. On the other hand, operating within the hospitality industry and provide short let accommodations are allowed to charge VAT compliance at the rate of 7% before the relevant tax period ends.

Three distinctive Articles (A10, A11 & A12) in the VAT Act, determine if the company should be registered or not for VAT. The Maltese VAT Act, allows a great number of companies to deduct the VAT declarations it incurred on its economic taxable activities and reduces the cost of the expenses incurred during the standard tax period.

Furthermore, Maltese companies registered for VAT purposes under Articles 10 & 12 can apply for the Reverse Charge Mechanism when doing intra-community trade. Hence, if a Maltese company purchases goods from another member state of the European Union, it neither pays VAT obligations outside of Malta nor in Malta.

Lastly, companies registered under Article 10 are allowed to deduct the input VAT incurred and end up paying less output VAT.
