Malta made changes in law regarding tax credits
Since the beginning of this year, Malta has issued a number of official notices, providing for the changes in the law regarding tax credits. Thus, the Official Notice No. 140 amended the Regulations on Tax Credits for Micro Enterprises and Private Entrepreneurs (Tax Credits for Micro Enterprises and the Self-Employed Regulations). In accordance with the revised provisions, the definition of "eligible costs" now includes family enterprises in the definition fixed by the Family Business Law. Yet, a clause was added to the Regulation, according to which since 2018, the family business can be granted a tax credit for an amount not exceeding 50,000 euros. The loan must be used during any 3-year period.
