One of the most important stages of opening a company in Malta is employment. Malta has a strict employment legislation which provides for the conclusion of individual or collective work contracts and it also sets out the regulation related to the rights and obligations of both employer and employees.
One of the rights of Maltese employees is to be remunerated for the work they supply which is offered under the form of a salary. Additionally, an employee can be rewarded with various bonuses. The processing of workers’ salaries is called payroll and it is usually carried out by the human resources (HR) department in Maltese companies.
Even if it may seem simple, using specific payroll services is recommended in Malta. Moreover, foreign investors can benefit from both HR and payroll services in Malta.
In order to be able to pay the taxes on salaries and the social contributions related to each employee, a Maltese company is required to register with the Inland Revenue Department (IRD) as an employer. On the other hand, the employees must register with the Employment and Training Corporation (ETC). When using the services of an accounting firm in Malta, the payroll process, including the registration with these two authorities can be handled by this firm.
