‘person residing in Malta’ means a natural person who holds a legally valid identification document issued in terms of the Identity Card and Other Documents Act (Cap. 258) or who has a residence permit or equivalent documentation issued by a competent national authority; 

‘entity’ means an organisation that is registered as a Non-Governmental Organisation with the Commission for Voluntary Organisations; 

‘fiscal receipt’ means a receipt as defined in the Thirteenth Schedule to the Value Added Tax (Chap. 406), as subsequently amended, and also includes any regulation made under the same Act;

‘special equipment’ means any type of equipment that is included in schedule (B) that is annexed to this notice and that is intended for the use of persons with disability and specifically aimed to improve their level of life and independence;

‘purchase price of the equipment’ means the total purchase price of the complete equipment including VAT and which purchase price has been paid in full by the applicant prior to applying for this grant.

 2. Area of applicability

This scheme applies to the expenditure that is incurred on the purchase price of the special equipment by the applicant, and which equipment is purchased by the applicant on the effective date or afterwards during the duration of this scheme.  

3. Expenditure to be reported

The expenditure to be reported is in respect of the purchase price of the special equipment as defined in paragraph 1 above.


4. Manner of application and supporting documents


(i) Applications under this scheme shall be made on the form set out in schedule (A) annexed to this scheme, and shall contain all the information, details and documents as required in the said form and in terms of this scheme.

(ii) Applications shall include the following:

(a) the Special Identity Card number of the person with disability for whom this application is being made, as issued by the Commission for the Rights of Persons with Disability;

(b) in the case where an application is being made in the name of a person with disability, a copy of the Identity Card of the applicant, or, in the case of the lack of an Identity Card, a copy of any other official document of identity as referred to in the interpretation of a ‘person residing in Malta’ in paragraph 1 of this scheme;

(c) in the case of an entity that is applying on behalf of a person with disability, the registration number with the Commission for Voluntary Organisations, together with the details of the person with disability on behalf of whom that entity is applying.  The details shall include the name of the person with disability who is going to benefit from the equipment, the address and the Special Identity Card number of the person on behalf of whom the entity is applying;

(d) the original fiscal receipt relating to the purchase of the special equipment, together with the original invoice indicating the type of special equipment purchased.  

In the case of special equipment not purchased from Malta the original invoice issued by the supplier indicating the type of special equipment purchased, together with the delivery note, the original documentary proof that final payment has been effected, and clearance from Maltapost/Department of Customs Malta as may be required. These documents must confirm that the special equipment was really purchased; that the purchase price of the special equipment which price includes duty and VAT as may be required was really paid in full; that such a purchase was effected by the purchaser for the applicant; and that the special equipment was delivered to the applicant’s residence or to the residence of the person with disbility for whom the application would have been made.  The special equipment must also have a certificate of conformity with EU standard safety regulations, as may be required; 

(e) any other document which the Minister for Finance may, from time to time, require.

(iii) Only those applications that are found to conform with the provisions of this scheme shall be eligible for payment of the grant referred to in paragraph 5 of this scheme.

(iv) Applications under this scheme, including the documents required to be submitted with the application, shall be furnished to an office as may be indicated by the Ministry for Finance, by not later than three months from the purchase of the special equipment. It is recommended that if documents are sent by post, registered mail should be used. Application forms are available from (www.finance.gov.mt) or on (www.sapport.gov.mt). 

Applications received ‘late’, that is after the three-month period, shall be deemed to be invalid applications.

5. Grant payable under this scheme

Eligible applicants may apply for a grant of not more than 4.5% on the purchase price of the special equipment as listed in part one of schedule (B) and for a grant of not more than 17.5% on the purchase price of the special equipment as listed in part two of schedule (B), subject to a maximum capping of €400.  
This capping will be applicable for a five-year period from when the individual would have benefitted from the first grant.  Therefore, an individual is able to apply multiple times for this grant scheme but the cumulative amount of the grant/s received cannot be more than the indicated maximum capping.  This will apply for a period of five years.

9. Amendments to the scheme

The Minister for Finance reserves the right to make any amendments to this scheme by the publication of the said amendments in the Government Gazette.

10. Transitory provisions

Applications made under this scheme relating to the expenditure on the purchase price of special equipment, and which purchase was carried out between the effective date and the date of publication of this Notice, shall be deemed to be valid applications under this scheme.
