Taxes Included in This Take-Home Pay Calculator


Employees in Malta have taxes deducted from their salary by their employer, while self-employed individuals and others must pay taxes directly to the tax authorities by filing a tax return. Our tax calculator includes the following taxes and bonuses:

  • Income Tax: The Maltese government applies a progressive income tax system, with rates that vary from 0% to 35%. In 2024, individuals with an income of up to €9,100 are not subject to income tax.
  • National Insurance: In Malta, National Insurance refers to the portion of an individual's salary that is withheld to support a range of social security benefits, including healthcare, pensions, and unemployment benefits. Both employees and employers contribute 10% of the employee's gross salary towards Social Security.
  • Government Bonuses: Employers in Malta pay two types of bonuses to employees, namely the Statutory Bonus and the Weekly Allowance. The Statutory Bonus is paid bi-annually in June and December, while the Weekly Allowance is paid twice a year in March and September. All registered employees, including part-timers who work full-time elsewhere, are entitled to them.

It's important to note that students enrolled in a full-time course of studies or instruction under the Student-Worker Scheme or other similar schemes are eligible for a reduction in National Insurance. While the rate remains at 10%, this reduction effectively limits a student's social security contributions to €7.94 per week, or approximately €413 per year.
