Malta is a successful jurisdiction in the field of gaming and has witnessed remarkable growth. Since the Remote Gaming Regulations came into force in 2004, there has been an increase in the gaming providers who set up their operation in Malta, including some of the world’s leading operators. Since then, Malta became the first EU member state to regulate remote gaming.

Malta also offers attractive fiscal incentives including the availability of tax refunds based on Malta’s full imputation system and the availability of double tax treaties with various countries.

All Maltese operators of remote gaming in Malta must possess a valid license of the appropriate class. A Malta gaming license is valid for a period of five years and can be renewed for further five-year periods. An application fee and an annual fee is payable.
