Withholding Tax

In Malaysia, we have seen the growth and potential of e-commerce as a new business channel. The development of e-commerce has been accelerated by Covid-19 pandemic lockdowns , which created new customer bases while pushing many businesses to go online.  Evidently even traditional businesses need to take initiatives in using technology such as social media marketing, cloud-based accounting software and so on. Thus, IRBM has announced expanding withholding tax to be required under e-commerce industry, which includes services performed by foreign providers outside Malaysia.

Our tax experts will assist in handling withholding tax which is a method of collecting taxes from non-residents who have derived income which is subject to Malaysian tax. Any tax resident person who is liable to make certain specified types of payments to a non-resident is required to deduct withholding tax at a prescribed rate applicable to the gross payment and remit it to IRBM within one month of paying or crediting.

Our services cover:

  • Withholding tax assessment and compliance review
  • Withholding tax consultancy
  • Withholding tax calculation and submission

Other Tax Services

Our tax experts will advise on tax due diligence which is essentially a risk review of a company’s tax position and its exposure to potential and uncrystallised tax liabilities. It focuses on assessing risk to ensure that the acquirer is getting what he thinks he’s getting without undisclosed facts and information. It is particularly important as tax is a substantial cost of doing (or buying into) any business. The findings from a tax due diligence exercise would eventually be used to support the sale and purchase negotiations of the company. Other than that, our professional tax team will also assist in advisory and compliance services for indirect tax, which includes Stamp Duty application and Real Property Gains Tax. We will help you to identify risk areas and sustainable planning opportunities for indirect taxes throughout the tax life cycle, helping you meet your business goals. Furthermore, our tax professionals can also assist in expatriate tax clearance application to IRBM that indicates any outstanding income tax by the employee, regardless if they are local, foreigner or expatriate. Lastly, since Malaysian regulators, IRBM adopt taxation principle, income earned in Malaysia is taxable. Income tax submission/tax return must be made even for expatriates: those who work in Malaysia for more than 60 days but less than 182 days (Non Resident) are eligible to pay taxes at 30% tax rate. Expatriates who fall under Resident status are eligible for tax deductions.
