Malta was a pioneer amongst the EU countries to regularise the remote gaming industry which progressively metamorphosed into a flourishing and lucrative sector witnessing Malta’s emergence as a leader in the field as a gaming jurisdictional hub.

Malta owes this success to a convergence of various factors which together culminate in an overall attractive jurisdiction for any gaming operator wanting to conduct business locally. The application of common market principles applied by EU member states, including Malta, and the freedom of movement of both goods and services, are deemed to be the most fundamental factors.

This ties in with Malta’s inherently advantageous strategic position, the beauty and attractiveness of the island, pleasant lifestyle, warm climate and a unique value proposition in the form of top notch professional services underpinned by a workforce that is highly skilled, well-educated, flexible and reliable. Malta’s value offering incorporates sound and robust banking and financial services - the backbone for any potential investor.

Malta’s established ecosystem and beneficial tax regime, especially when compared to other EU countries, has been identified as core competitive advantages. Specific tax incentives, such as the Highly Qualified Persons Rules (iGaming) and the Qualifying Employment in Innovation and Creativity Rules (applicable to Video Gaming) an effective corporate tax rate of 5% and a wide array of double taxation treaties with various countries worldwide, puts Malta at the forefront of the game.
