Retiring & Pensions

Malta - Retiring & Pensions


Malta is a particularly popular retirement destination, especially among the British. Its attractions include the climate, the wide use of English, the high standard of living, relatively low cost of living, and the very low crime rate.

Malta has Double Taxation treaties with 34 other countries. People from these countries who retire in Malta can have their pensions sent to them free of tax in their country of origin, and will only pay 15% tax on their pensions in Malta, if they have permanent residence status. It should be noted, however, some of the treaties do not cover civil service pensions or other pensions paid in respect of government services. Further details of the Double Taxation treaties can be found on Malta's Inland Revenue website (http://www.ird.gov.mt).
