Gozo Teleworking Scheme launched

A financial aid measure, the Gozo Teleworking Scheme, has been launched, aimed at encouraging teleworking facilities to Gozitan resident employees.


On 25 May, a new financial aid measure, the Gozo Teleworking Scheme, has been launched by the Ministry for Gozo. The aim of the measure is to encourage Malta-based businesses to offer teleworking facilities to Gozitan resident employees, thereby reducing their commuting time to Malta.

Employers offering such teleworking facilities may be eligible to receive:

  • A partial refund of 75% of the purchase cost of teleworking equipment up to a maximum of €850 per employee;
  • A partial refund of the salary cost, up to €10,000, based on the number of hours that the employee teleworks, spread over 3 years i.e. a maximum of €3,000 in each of the first two years and a maximum of €4,000 in the third year. In order to be eligible for the scheme, the minimum amount of telework hours granted by the employer to the employee must be an average of 2 days per week and a maximum of 4 days per week.  

The aid is limited to a maximum of 10 employees per employer in 2020.

Applications are open and must be submitted by 25 September 2020.

The terms and conditions are set in the Guidelines on the website of the Ministry for Gozo.
