Insight from AE
Litigation in Malta
Tax related dispute resolution processes in Malta can take a number of forms but, as with most court litigation, it isn’t the swiftest way to settle a grievance. If an objection to a tax assessment is refuted, the first move is to lodge an appeal with the Administrative Review Tribunal (ART). If this also fails, the next step is to seek a resolution with the Court of Appeal. This Court can be either Inferior or Superior, depending on whether the monetary value in dispute is more or less than €1,165,000.
