Why have iGaming companies moved to Malta?

As far as betting companies are concerned, there are considerable tax benefits to operating under a Maltese betting license from Malta, both in terms of paying corporate tax and when it comes to paying dividends to shareholders.

Secondly, the Lotteries and Gaming Authority (LGA) of Malta is a strong, organised and experienced regulatory authority who make the transition for an  I-gaming company looking to move to Malta a smooth and painless one, giving them knowledgeable advice as to what they need to do and how to do it in order to fulfil the terms of their license.

Thirdly, the overhead costs of running one or more offices from Malta such as rent and electricity are substantially lower than what they’d be in the European cities (such as London, Dublin and Stockholm) where the relocated companies were originally founded.

Then of course there’s the small matter of English being one of the two official languages as we’ve seen above, a huge benefit to the company in terms of operating and just as importantly, when it comes to the recruitment of staff.
