    Malta VAT Advisory

    Value Added Tax (VAT) is a complicated and dynamic tax regime. This often presents a serious challenge for businesses. In Principle, VAT is neutral to businesses as it is a tax on the consumer. However, in certain circumstances, there is the possibility that the business is seen as the end consumer. VAT is generally charged, collected and paid to the relevant tax authorities by the Company itself. Consequently, determining the correct VAT treatment of a particular transaction and understanding the local procedures involved are essential to ensure that a company meets its tax compliance obligations.
