Malta raises VAT registration threshold

The 2018 Maltese Budget includes a proposal to increase the country’s VAT registration threshold from €14,000 to €20,000.

Non-resident companies must immediately VAT register if they are providing taxable supplies in Malta. The exception is e-commerce sales by foreign companies to Maltese consumers. In this case, there is a distance selling threshold of €35,000 per annum.
