EASA’s tasks within the EU-27 and 4 associated countries will continue seamlessly beyond the UK’s withdrawal. The overall aims of EASA’s operations remain untouched by the UK withdrawal.

As the withdrawal and transitional agreement negotiations are currently underway EASA cannot yet determine the ultimate impact of the withdrawal on EASA or its stakeholders within the EU-27 and 4 associated countries or within the UK. The withdrawal will significantly alter EASA’s cooperation with UK authorities and will not leave EASA’s stakeholders untouched.

Tax Benefits for Maltese Air Operator Certificate Holders

Since joining the EU, Malta has seen significant growth in the services industries namely in the Financial, Gaming and Aviation sectors. These services are playing an important role in the Maltese economy and various local governments have enacted legislation to support these industries.  As these services are relevantly new to the island, local know-how is not readily available and as a result the country needs to entice highly qualified people from outside the country. The latest of these Legal Notices is the Highly Qualified Persons Rules which include specifically the Aviation sector. Coming into effect on the 1st January 2012, essentially this legislation provides for a tax rebate to person employed with a Maltese Air Operator Certificate holder who are not domiciled in Malta. Effectively, ‘Eligible’ positions would pay only a 15% tax rate on their income in Malta if there income exceeds €80,100 annually. For our detailed report please send us an e-mail to
