We offer assistance to employers with the applications in respect of prospective candidate(s) who require an employment licence in Malta. We also provide the employees with assistance with their applications for the procurement of a Single Permit, which is a residence permit issued by the Department for Citizenship and Expatriate Affairs allowing a third country national to reside legally in Malta for the purpose of work.
The regulations as stipulated by LN 160 of 2014 are aimed at regulating the application procedure for the issue of a Single Permit for third-country nationals, enabling them to reside for the purpose of work in Malta in order to simplify the procedures for their admission and to facilitate the control of their status.
The single permit application is to be submitted by the third country national, but it must be endorsed by the employer or the prospective employer.
While the Single Permit application is required by all non-EU nationals, some exceptions apply. The Single Permit procedure shall not apply to third country nationals:
The above mentioned third country nationals will continue to require the two separate procedures at the Employment and Training Corporation and the Department for Citizenship Expatriate Affairs.
Employment income is subject to Final Settlement System. We provide tax advice to both the employer as well as the employees including the provision of services related to payroll and other compliance forms that are required once an employment takes place. We also assist with the registration and compliance for Income Tax and Social Security purposes in Malta.
We also assist employers with the procurement of a Private Employer number.
