Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in Malta

You probably have questions. We’re here to answer them. Below, you’ll learn all the extra stuff you should probably know before putting together an independent contractor agreement for Malta.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in Malta?

An independent contractor agreement is a smart move when you're working with remote contractors. It helps you and your contractor get on the same page from the start. No more surprises or misunderstandings about project details or pay. It's much easier to iron out these details upfront, rather than trying to fix them later on.

Now, that’s not all there is to it. When you're hiring someone from Malta, it might feel like a handshake and word of mouth are enough. But it's definitely not the safest bet. Without a written contract in place, your working foundation with your contract is shakier. And, a compliant contractor agreement can help if you’re ever worried about misclassification.

What do contractor agreements in Malta typically need to have?

Every contractor agreement in Malta (and, the rest of the world) can be broken up into two parts:

  • Contract-specific variables: This includes things like scope of work, rate, and deadline. They’re the project-specific variables that you’ll include with each contract, and are totally dependent on what type of work you’re hiring a contractor to do.
  • Everything else: Besides things like scope and deadline, every independent contractor agreement in Malta should follow a similar structure. If you want to grab your own contract with a compliant structure for Malta, sign up to Thera
What makes contractors different from employees in Malta?

You might be unsure about whether to bring in your hire from Malta as a contractor or an employee. A lot of people choose contractors because it's less complicated and less stressful. Hiring employees can come with a lot of rules and paperwork, which can make the whole process more time-consuming and difficult. And not to mention how it’s especially challenging when you’re hiring remotely in an unfamiliar country.

Here are a few of the key things that make contractors different from employees in Malta:

  • Contractors can set their own schedules
  • Contractors can work with their own software and tools 
  • Contractors can work for other clients 
  • Contractors rarely receive benefits, like health insurance*

Hiring contractors is the faster, cheaper, more flexible way to hire abroad. And, when you use Thera, you’re able to hire & pay with an employment-like experience—no more messy spreadsheets and manual wire transfers.
