Malta – 10th November 2009 – People selling a second property in Malta now have a 7 year period including 2010 and 2011, as opposed to 5 years on choosing whether to pay a 12 per cent final withholding tax or 35 per cent on income.

In 2006, the government had given a five-year term from the date of purchase by when sellers can choose either to pay the withholding tax or the normal rates on capital gains.
