Income tax table for 2016/2017
|Chargeable income||Base Tax||2016 Rate||Base Tax||2017 Rate|
Effective Year of Assessment 2010, the employment income of an individual who is a knowledged worker and residing in a specific region (Iskandar, Malaysia) exercising employment with a person who carries on any qualifying activity (namely green technology, biotechnology, educational services, healthcare services, creative industries, financial advisory, and consulting services, logistic services, and tourism) would be taxed at the rate of 15 percent of his chargeable income. (Applicable for knowledged workers who apply and commence employment in Iskandar, Malaysia between 24 October 2009 and 31 December 2015. The exemption to be extended to 31 December 2020 is yet to be formalised). However, prior approval from the Ministry of Finance is required before a knowledged worker could enjoy the tax rate of 15 percent.
Effective from YA2012, the employment income of an approved individual under the Returning Expert Programme will be taxed at the rate of 15 percent. Based on the Talentcorp’s Web site (which is the authority handling the Returning Expert Programme), the approved individual could opt to be taxed under the scale rates instead of 15 percent. The concession is for a period of five years.
The income of a non-resident individual is subject to income tax at 28 percent without personal relief.
For the purposes of taxation, how is an individual defined as a resident of Malaysia?
The residence7 of an individual is determined by his/her physical presence in Malaysia. An individual may qualify as a resident for the basis year for a particular year of assessment under any one of the following circumstances.
Are there any tax compliance requirements when leaving Malaysia?
It is the employer’s obligation to notify the Malaysia Inland Revenue Board (MIRB) of the termination of employment of an employee who is leaving Malaysia for more than three months. The notification is via filing of Form CP21 at least one month before the expected date of departure or date of cessation (whichever is earlier) of the employee from Malaysia.9 A schedule of entries and departures to/from Malaysia and his/her original passport have to be submitted to the MIRB for verification of his/her residence status together with the Form CP21. In practice, upon receipt of the Form CP21, the MIRB would issue a tax return to the employee to enable him/her to file his/her latest tax return before he/she leaves Malaysia. Upon submission of his/her latest year’s tax return, the MIRB would issue a tax clearance letter to inform the employee of any outstanding taxes to be paid and have on records his date of departure. The employer is also required to withhold any money in its possession owing to an employee who has ceased employment or is about to cease employment until the earlier of 90 days after the MIRB has received the Form CP21 or upon receipt of the tax clearance letter from the MIRB.10
What if the assignee comes back for a trip after residency has terminated?
The physical presence rule still applies for tax residency determination.11
Do the immigration authorities in Malaysia provide information to the local taxation authorities regarding when a person enters or leaves Malaysia?
Yes, we understand that the immigration and tax authorities are able to exchange information when required.
Will an assignee have a filing requirement in the host country after they leave the country and repatriate?
There would be no filing requirement for the assignee if he/she does not have any chargeable income derived from Malaysia after his/her repatriation. However, it is important that the assignee clears his tax fully before he repatriates.
Do the taxation authorities in Malaysia adopt the economic employer approach12 to interpreting Article 15 of the OECD treaty? If no, are the taxation authorities in Malaysia considering the adoption of this interpretation of economic employer in the future?
Where the Malaysian company is resident in Malaysia and bears the remuneration cost of an expatriate assigned to work in Malaysia, one of the stipulated conditions normally provided in the tax treaty would therefore not be fulfilled. As such, the expatriate employee would not be able to claim exemption from Malaysian tax under the double taxation treaty. The MIRB has clarified that for purposes of interpreting Dependent Personal Services, it would examine where the employee’s remuneration costs would be charged. In the situation where the home country employer recharges the remuneration cost to the host country (that is Malaysia), the employee’s remuneration costs would therefore be borne by the Malaysian company. Under such conditions, exemption from Malaysian tax would not be available.
The MIRB follows Article 15 of the OECD treaty.
Are there a de minimus number of days13 before the local taxation authorities will apply the economic employer approach? If yes, what is the de minimus number of days?
Generally, it is 60 days. Under the Malaysian tax law, the income of a non-resident individual from an employment exercised by him/her in Malaysia for not more than 60 days in total in a basis year will be exempt from Malaysian tax.
What categories are subject to income tax in general situations?
The definition of employment income covers all forms of remuneration including benefits, whether in-cash or in-kind, received by an individual for exercising or having an employment in Malaysia.14 Therefore, an employee’s income in respect of his/her employment in Malaysia will be subject to Malaysian tax regardless of whether it is paid in Malaysia or outside Malaysia.
Typical items of compensation received by an expatriate employee in Malaysia are taxed as follows.
The Ministry of Finance has clarified that as a transitional arrangement, employees who have been granted options under ESOS before 1 January 2006 would be given a choice to apply the old tax treatment on the whole or part of their entitlement regardless of when the options are exercised or exercisable.31
Are there any areas of income that are exempt from taxation in Malaysia? If so, please provide a general definition of these areas.

The salary earned from working abroad would not be taxable unless the income received is incidental to the Malaysian employment.45
Are investment income and capital gains taxed in Malaysia? If so, how?
Malaysia used to adopt the imputation system of dividend taxation, so the shareholder is subject to tax on the gross dividend but receives a credit for the tax borne by the company, which can be deducted from his/her tax liability.46
With effect from year of assessment 2008, the imputation system has been replaced by the single-tier system. Under single-tier system, dividends paid by a resident company would be tax exempt in the hands of its shareholders.47

What are the tax reimbursement methods generally used by employers in Malaysia?
The tax reimbursement methods generally used by employers in Malaysia are current year grossed-up and one-year rollover methods.
How are estimates/prepayments/withholding of tax handled in Malaysia? For example, Pay-As-You-Earn (PAYE), Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG), and so on.
As a general rule, all employees whether local or expatriate, are subjected to Pay-As-You-Earn (PAYE). It is mandatory for an employer to deduct tax on a monthly basis from the employee’s remuneration based on the prescribed tables or formula issued by the MIRB. For this purpose, remuneration includes salaries, allowance, arrears, wages, fees, bonus, gratuity, commission, perquisite, and tips, but excludes benefits-in-kind.90 The tax deducted is to cover the tax on the remuneration earned for the month.
Employees may make an irrevocable election (subject to employer’s agreement) to include benefits-in-kind and value of living accommodation as part of the remuneration to be subject to monthly tax deduction by completing a prescribed form (Form TP2) and submit to the employer.
Effective from 1 January 2015, pursuant to the Income Tax (Deduction from Remuneration) (Amendment) (No. 2) Rules 2014, benefits-in-kind and value of living accommodation as part of the remuneration would be subject to monthly tax deduction mandatorily.
Further, prior to 1 January 2015 employees may make an irrevocable election (subject to employer’s agreement) in a prescribed form (Form TP1) for additional deductions (other than the standard deductions on individual, spouse, child, and contribution to Employees Provident Fund or other approved schemes) and submit it to the employer in determining the amount of monthly tax deduction.91
Effective from 1 January 2015, pursuant to the Income Tax (Deduction from Remuneration) (Amendment) (No. 2) Rules 2014, it is mandatory for an employer to allow the employees to claim additional deductions via Form TP1 at a minimum twice a year when determining the amount of monthly tax deductions.
An employee joining a new employer in the current year is required to complete a prescribed form (Form TP3) to disclose his remuneration from his previous employer(s) to enable the new employer to correctly calculate the monthly tax deductions.
When are estimates/prepayments/withholding of tax due in Malaysia? For example: monthly, annually, both, and so on.
The monthly tax deducted from the remuneration of the employees during a calendar month has to be remitted to the MIRB not later than the 10th day of the following calendar month via the Statement of Tax Deduction by an Employer (Form CP39) or the CD-ROM.92
Effective from 1 January 2015, pursuant to the Income Tax (Deduction from Remuneration) (Amendment) (No. 2) Rules 2014, the payment due date to remit the monthly tax deduction on the employees’ monthly remuneration is extended from 10th to 15th of the following calendar month.
Is there any Relief for Foreign Taxes in Malaysia? For example, a foreign tax credit (FTC) system, double taxation treaties, and so on?
Where there is a double taxation treaty, bilateral credit could be claimed. Bilateral credit shall only be given to a person resident in Malaysia. The bilateral tax credit allowable would be the lower of actual foreign tax payable or the Malaysian tax payable on the foreign income that has been subject to tax twice.93
Where there is no double taxation treaty, unilateral tax credit is allowed but is limited to the lower of one-half of the foreign tax payable on the foreign income for the year or the Malaysian tax payable on the foreign income that has been subject to tax twice.94
Malaysia has concluded double taxation treaties with more than 70 countries, which generally provide for an exemption from Malaysian tax for remuneration for personal services in Malaysia performed for or on behalf of a foreign employer for a period of not more than 183 days during a tax year or twelve months period and the remuneration is not directly deductible from the income of a permanent establishment (PE) which the foreign employer has in Malaysia.
What are the general tax credits that may be claimed in Malaysia? Please list below.
The general tax credits available in Malaysia for tax resident individuals are tax rebates and personal reliefs. The tax relief is deductible against the individual’s total income and the tax rebates can be deducted against the individual’s tax liability.
This calculation assumes a married taxpayer resident in Malaysia with two children whose three-year assignment begins 1 January 2015 and ends 31 December 2017. The taxpayer’s base salary is USD100,000 and the calculation covers three years.

12 Certain tax authorities adopt an "economic employer" approach to interpreting Article 15 of the OECD model treaty which deals with the Dependent Services Article. In summary, this means that if an employee is assigned to work for an entity in the host country for a period of less than 183 days in the fiscal year (or, a calendar year of a 12-month period), the employee remains employed by the home country employer but the employee's salary and costs are recharged to the host entity, then the host country tax authority will treat the host entity as being the "economic employer" and therefore the employer for the purposes of interpreting Article 15. In this case, Article 15 relief would be denied and the employee would be subject to tax in the host country.
13 For example, an employee can be physically present in the country for up to 60 days before the tax authorities will apply the ‘economic employer’ approach.
