Maltese based companies receive fiscal incentives such as refunds on dividends, double taxation relief, and reduced rates of income tax on personal income.
In 2004, the islands of Malta became the first EU country to create a comprehensive legal framework to support the burgeoning online gaming sector. Since then, the industry has gone from strength to strength and it is now home to the largest number of operators in the European Union, firmly cementing its reputation as a leading jurisdiction for the regulation of iGaming.
But it is not the sun, sea, and sought after Mediterranean lifestyle that brings so many iGaming businesses to Malta. The Maltese government and the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) have worked hard to create a favourable legal framework that encourages growth, whilst ensuring compliance with stringent legislative and legal standards. Various fiscal incentives such as refunds on dividends, double taxation relief, and reduced rates of income tax on personal income, are also available to further encourage industry growth and expansion. Malta also benefits from an advanced IT infrastructure, an efficient company formation process, a common and civil law system, a flourishing financial services sector, an educated and multilingual workforce, and of course, a great quality of life for anyone that chooses to relocate there.
iGaming in Malta is an integral part of the Maltese economy and through the authorities consistent approach to regulation, combined with the favourable incentives on offer, the island continues to be considered by the gaming industry as a true centre of excellence.
