What is a Small to Medium Enterprise in Malta?

Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are businesses that maintain revenues, assets or a number of employees between certain thresholds. Each country has its own definition of what constitutes a small and medium-sized enterprise (SME). Certain size criteria must be met and occasionally the industry in which the company operates in is taken into account as well.

SMEs in Europe are defined as having a Staff head-count of between 10 and 250 employees, or a sales turnover (revenue) of between €2 m EUR and €50 m EUR, or a Balance sheet total of between €2 m EUR and €43 m EUR (assets).

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are the backbone of Europe's economy. They represent 99% of all businesses in the EU. They employ around 100 million people, account for more than half of Europe’s GDP and play a key role in adding value in every sector of the economy. SMEs bring innovative solutions to challenges like climate change, resource efficiency and social cohesion and help spread this innovation throughout Europe’s regions. They are therefore central to the EU’s twin transitions to a sustainable and digital economy. They are essential to Europe’s competitiveness and prosperity, industrial ecosystems, economic and technological sovereignty, and resilience to external shocks.
