Quick question, can't believe I'm the only person in history to have this, but trying to find an answer is almost impossible!
My wife and I are in serious thoughts about moving to Malta. We're going to do it the sensible way, we'll do a long term rent for six month before giving a final decision as to if the island is to be our home for a few years.
I'm British, she's Turkish (although she has full British citizenship), so the formalities of EU shouldn't be a problem.
We both LOVE living in London, it's just a massive play ground, but my wife longs for the sunshine and to be honest, I'm starting to crave a more healthy lifestyle. We've been to Malta a few times, absolutely love the place, I was brave (stupid?) enough to hire a car too and have driven around the place covering a lot of the island.
The question I have though is this:
Has anyone here moved to Malta, extended their 90day stay onto a residency while working for a British company; i.e., getting paid in pounds, tax and NI paid by their British employer, but it ok to live in Malta?
The company I work for is fantastic, my work quite a specialised area, and I doubt I'd have the same satisfaction and variance for a company in Malta like I do here in London.
In theory I can't see a problem, I am after all bringing money into Malta, to spend, thus helping the Maltese economy.
I did read somewhere about a sufficiency agreement where if I can prove to be bring in more than €1200 (I think), I can tick a few boxes, and I could prove that easily with wage slips.
Has anyone done this? IS it quite straight forward to do, or are there a few legal challenges like tax, etc?
