Malta – Mexico Double Tax Treaty Agreement

Malta – Mexico Double Tax Treaty Agreement in force

The double tax treaty entered into and signed between the government of Malta and Mexico has finally come into force.

As of 2014, Mexico is the 14th largest economy in the world, with considerable clout in the manufacturing and services industry. The finalization of this treaty, represents a consolidation of the shift towards concluding bilateral treaties with Central and Latin American jurisdictions, following the finalization of an agreement with Uruguay.

The most salient features of the double tax treaty agreement, may be summarised as follows:

  • 0% withholding taxes on dividend income
  • Interest arising in one state and paid to the resident of the other is taxable on in the latter state. If the beneficial owner of the state where the interest arises, the tax charged shall not be in excess of:

(i) 5% of gross amount of the interest from loans granted by a bank;
(ii) 10% of the gross amount of the interest, in all other cases

  • Royalties to same rules as interest. Where the beneficial owner of the royalty is a resident of the other contracting state, the tax charge shall not exceed 10% of the gross amount of the royalties.
