Only 5% taxation on corporate profits was never possible for me until I met St. Publius and their tax saving strategy in form of a Malta Ltd. with non-domiciled status.

Industry: Wholesale

Challenge: Too high taxes in the GmbH

Solution: Maltese Ltd. with non-domiciled status

Gain: Approx. 44 000€ per year


Christine Müller is the CEO of a large trading company for textiles. She buys products regularly in China and Italy, and imports them to Europe. All profits were until now fully taxed in the German GmbH (30%).

Together with St. Publius Christine Müller established a Maltese Ltd., which now takes over the international sourcing. The company sells its products directly from Malta to Europe now. The resulting gains of the Ltd. are taxed with 35%, of which she gets  6/7 back later.  She moved to London and enjoys the private non-domiciled status.
