Relocation to Malta: services provided by Dr Werner & Partner

Our arti­cles of the last few days main­ly dealt with the pos­i­tive aspects of relo­ca­tion to Mal­ta. As a pro­fes­sion­al ser­vice provider, we give pri­or­i­ty to the tax­a­tion issues that need to be con­sid­ered.

In this con­text, one of the most impor­tant aspects is the fact that with­in some EU coun­tries a dif­fer­en­ti­a­tion is made between res­i­dent and domi­ciled, and like­wise between res­i­dent and non-domi­ciled (“non-dom” for short).

Non-dom: a small word which, how­ev­er, makes an enor­mous dif­fer­ence, as for “non-doms” de fac­to no prin­ci­ple of tax­a­tion of world­wide income applies. For pre­cise­ly this rea­son, com­pre­hen­sive advice on legal struc­tur­ing is essen­tial; ulti­mate­ly, in addi­tion to con­di­tions in Mal­ta, those abroad must be par­tic­u­lar­ly tak­en into con­sid­er­a­tion. Even if the fol­low­ing might appear to make for easy read­ing, it is still impor­tant not to under­es­ti­mate the effort involved and the con­se­quences of the whole issue.

The pro­cess­ing nec­es­sary to attain “non-dom” sta­tus as well as appli­ca­tion for the GLOBAL RESIDENCE SCHEME or reg­is­tra­tion as a “high­ly qual­i­fied per­son” can be under­tak­en by Dr Wern­er & Part­ner. The fol­low­ing excerpt from our Eng­lish cat­a­logue of ser­vices pro­vides a brief overview of the ser­vices we offer in this respect:
