Support Measures

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.

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. 

This incentive is aimed at assisting undertakings based in the Ta’ Qali Crafts Village and the Ta’ Dbieġi Crafts Village. 

This scheme is aimed at assisting small business activities with industrial space.

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.

This incentive aims to support undertakings that are willing to establish new markets, or to introduce a new service or product in an existing international market.

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.
