Your Guide to Expat Taxes
Whether you’re planning your retirement on the beautiful Maltese islands, looking to purchase a property, invest, or relocate permanently to the Mediterranean coastline, protecting your wealth is important.
While much of the Maltese tax system works similarly to the UK, there are considerable differences in exposure to inheritance taxes, income tax brackets and the deductions you need to budget for depending on your tax residency status.
Known for favourable tax regimes and as a welcoming destination for expats, Malta is undoubtedly a popular option with families, professionals and retirees – and with careful planning, there are countless opportunities to secure your financial future.
Chase Buchanan’s Expat Guide to Taxes in Malta provides a straightforward overview of how taxes work in Malta, what you’re likely to pay, and why your residency status makes such an impact.

Every country has a unique landscape of filing requirements, tax regulations, declaration rules and tax brackets, so understanding how everything works before you relocate is advisable.
Many decisions you make now – including how you manage your pension wealth – will dictate your tax exposure on relocation as well as your ongoing financial stability.
The right decisions for you will depend entirely on the types of assets or investments you hold in your portfolio, your aspirations for your new life overseas, and how and when you anticipate drawing on your pension fund.
Following Brexit, many of the rules most relevant to British expats in Malta have changed substantially, so it is necessary to take the time to consider asset structures and investment routes available which may offer lucrative benefits in tax efficiency and returns.
