Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement
On May 19th 2011 the ratification instruments of the protocol to the Amendment of the Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement of March 8th 2011 were exchanged in Berlin between Germany and Malta. Through the Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement and its Amendment of May 19th 2011 the tax systems of Malta and Germany are aligned in order to prevent double taxation. The Amendments are intended to bring the existing agreement in line with current international standards of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), thus increasing exchange of information and transparency for financial authorities.
Please not that the German Embassy Valletta cannot provide any further information concerning the implementation of the Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement between Germany and Malta and its content. If you have further questions, please consult a Maltese or German Lawyer or tax accountant.
