Is the income I earn from savings and investment products subject to foreign withholding tax?

Interest income earned on Investment Cash Accounts, Savings Accounts, Me Accounts and Fixed Term Deposits is not subject to foreign withholding tax. Income from securities issued by foreign companies may be subject to withholding tax in the country where the security was issued. However, a Maltese investor may benefit from a lower foreign withholding tax rate or be entitled to a refund of foreign withholding tax by virtue of the double taxation agreement between Malta and the country where the issuer of the security is located. We advise you to consult your tax advisor in order to get more specific advice and to assess your overall tax position.
