Ukraine Ratifies Tax Treaty With Malta

by Tatiana Smolenskaya, Tax-News.com, Moscow

20 April 2017

On April 13, 2017, the Ukrainian Parliament ratified its tax treaty with Malta, which provides for lower withholding tax rates on dividends, interest, and royalties.

Under the deal, the withholding tax rate for dividends would be capped at 15 percent. A special rate of five percent would apply to dividends received by a company if it owns at least 20 percent of the capital of the company paying the dividends.

Interest and royalties income would be subject to a maximum withholding tax rate of 10 percent.

The treaty was signed in September 2013.
