Support Measures and Other Services

In order to help our clients further improve their competitive edge, Malta Enterprise has developed various incentives for the promotion and expansion of industry and the development of innovative enterprises.

Malta Enterprise provides incentives for enterprises demonstrating commitment towards growth, an increase in value added and employment. Enterprises engaged in manufacturing, ICT development activities, call centers, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, aviation and maritime services, education and training, logistics and more may benefit from these incentives.

This measure is open to all SMEs that qualify for this incentive and shall allow these undertakings to recover in the form of tax credits, part of the costs incurred for the loan of highly qualified personnel from large undertakings and Research and Knowledge-dissemination Organisation.

The aid shall be granted in the form of tax credits and shall be capped at 50% of the eligible costs.

This incentive measure allows companies to claim tax credits on costs incurred directly or indirectly in carrying out an R&D project or projects relevant to the company’s trade.  Eligible projects should seek to achieve an advance in a field of science or technology through the resolution of scientific or technological uncertainty.

The aim of this measure is to finance innovative undertakings in their early stages of development by supporting Small Start-up Undertakings that demonstrate a viable business concept in the setting-up and initial growth phases.

Startup Advance is intended to support small startup undertkaings that are in the process of consolidating a business operation that has demostrated market potential and is deemed as economically feasible and innovative by the Corporation. 

The objective of this scheme is to encourage undertakings to invest in their business, innovate, expand, and implement compliance directives or to develop their operations. 

LEAP2ENTERPRISE is an initiative designed to assist vulnerable individuals in setting up their own sustainable, income-generating business activities.  To implement this measure, Malta Enterprise together with the Foundation for Social Welfare Services (LEAP) and Jobsplus Corporation (Jobsplus) will assist beneficiaries to set up their own business or develop an income-generating activity.

Limited availability of funds many times prohibits small business from carrying out new investment projects and may consequently lead to the loss of business opportunities.  The Micro Guarantee Scheme has the objective to accelerate growth by facilitating access to debt finance for smaller business undertakings.

Tenants of Malta Industrial Parks Ltd situated at Ta’ Qali crafts village will be supported in the development of their business premises situated within the Artisan Village.
