Running my online business from Malta - tax matter

Postby Rico29 » Fri 1 Nov 2013 19:47 GMT

Hello everyone and thank you for taking time to read my post.

I am currently living and working in the Republic of Ireland - sorry for posting in the British expats forum but there are lot of people in these Expats pages - and I run an online business from here.

I am planning to relocate to Malta soon but I would like to keep my business here in Ireland - as I said it is 80% online so I can be everywhere.

What is the tax story there if I keep the company here? Will I pay the tax only in Malta? Should I pay also the social contribution tax?

Thank you for helping me out, all the best

Riccardo

Welcome to the forum :-) the simple answer is it depends on many factors, and its worth checking with an accountant to make sure you setup in the best way.

Thanks a mill Mark, good advise indeed as I am trying to find an answer but the topic seems a big grey area!!!

Do you know or heard of any good accountant & reasonable priced?

Thanks again - hope to hear from you

There are loads of accountants in Malta, most of which should understand the issues you have, as they are fairly simple. However get it wrong, and it could be very costly, so worth getting good advice at the outset

Why would you wish to retain an Irish company, when Malta's effective tax rate is 5%?
Just re-domicile the Irish company to Malta - it remains the same company (same assets and liabilities etc), but becomes a Maltese company.
