People (From EU ) visiting Malta and working

Can People (from EU visiting Malta for short duration) work, without having to apply for Malta residency ? If yes, does their Maltese income get taxed in Malta ? If yes, is it like residents getting tax exemption on first 8000 or so ? If no, do they then pay tax in their country of origin ?

general rule is, only residents are allowed to work in Malta, at least I believe thats still the rule, but getting residency is simple as you dont apply for residency, you inform the authorities you consider yourself resident. That is done by applying for an eResidency card, which can be done by post. In reality, if they are only here for a couple of months, it probably wont even be processed before they leave. They will need to get a tax number and a social security number.

Now, tax residency is a different matter, and only applies if they live in Malta for 6 months in a calendar year. I'm not sure, but I think if they work here for a short period, they would be taxed on a temporary tax rate, which I think is 15%, with no allowances - they can then fill in a tax return to claim back if they wish

They could also still be liable to taxation on this income in their home country, depending on that countries tax rules, but in most cases with a double taxation agreement
