Tax in Malta

Hello guys,

I am from Mauritius and I will be working on a long-term basis in Malta soon and i will like to know what tax would be applicable to me. 

I read somewhere that it was 0% if i earn less than 8000€ per month. Is that true?

Thank you for your time.

Instead of wasting your time lecturing people, I bet you could have answered my question. I have search the net before posting this one but I am still confused because there are so many different laws for EU resident and non EU resident.

Hope this is a little more helpful!

The normal is 15% on earnings above €8500 - PER YEAR!

    0 - 8,500                                0%
      8,501 - 14,500              15%   
     14,501 - 60,000              25%   
    60,001    and over       35%
Not sure that it is the same for TCN's but I would imagine it is.

Thank you very much Ray.

Don't forget about SSC payments as well.

Please see excerpt:

‘…..Residency Status:

Different rates of tax apply to taxpayers who are not residents of Malta.

Therefore you are to indicate your residency status for income tax purposes in your tax return.

Non resident taxpayers:

As a general guideline, a non-resident may be defined as a foreign employee whose stay in Malta is less than 183 days……’

The OP referred to being here long term and therefore would be classed as a resident for tax purposes as he would be here for more than 183 days

Not sure why you posted this twice? Also how is this relevant to the OPs question?

It makes sense to ensure the Maltese tax authorities do not owe you a refund:
