Malta remote gaming licences for casino and betting

Online gam­bling has become a major con­trib­u­tor to the gam­ing mar­ket, and the indus­try is grow­ing quick­ly. The most pop­u­lar sec­tions are casi­no games, pok­er and sports bet­ting. Mal­ta is an online gam­ing juris­dic­tion that issues remote gam­ing licences to qual­i­fied oper­a­tors.

Oper­a­tors who wish to offer online games or sports bet­ting need a licence that specif­i­cal­ly allows the oper­a­tion of online games. Being in the pos­ses­sion of a licence for land-based games is not suf­fi­cient. Obtain­ing such a licence is also con­nect­ed to cer­tain con­di­tions, and if these are not met, the licence will not be issued. Mal­ta has a rep­u­ta­tion for rel­a­tive­ly strict con­di­tions that ensure the play­er is pro­tect­ed. This means that the oper­a­tors are reg­u­lar­ly checked, and need to give detailed infor­ma­tion about their accounts to the reg­u­la­to­ry body, the Mal­ta Gam­ing Author­i­ty. This is an advan­tage for the play­er, as they are con­fi­dent to play at web­sites that are reg­u­lat­ed by the MGA. This in turn is good for the oper­a­tors, as they are trust­wor­thy if they have a casi­no licence from Mal­ta.

Being in the pos­ses­sion of the Mal­ta licence is not only good for tak­ing advan­tage of the rep­u­ta­tion of Mal­ta, it also comes with attrac­tive tax­a­tion of gam­ing rev­enues and cor­po­rate tax. With the cor­rect struc­ture of the com­pa­ny in Mal­ta, it is pos­si­ble to obtain a refund of 6/7ths of cor­po­rate tax.

The legal office of Dr. Wern­er & Part­ner offers ser­vices regard­ing the appli­ca­tion for a gam­ing licence and com­pa­ny incor­po­ra­tions nec­es­sary to take advan­tage of the fis­cal incen­tives that Mal­ta offers.
