Malaysia Corporate Income Tax

Malaysia’s economy is based on free enterprise, with no restrictions on foreign ownership of a business. The repatriation of profits and the import of capital are freely allowed. Malaysia has a low corporate tax rate at 17% to 24% compared to other leading economies in the world. A company is taxed at scales rates on its chargeable income and capital gains are not taxable.

A company, whether resident or not, is assessable on income accrued in or derived from Malaysia or received in Malaysia from outside Malaysia. A company is considered a resident in Malaysia if the control and management of its affairs are exercised in Malaysia.

Malaysia Personal Income Tax

Individuals are liable to pay Individual Tax on income accrued in and derived from Malaysia or received in Malaysia from outside Malaysia. Income remitted to Malaysia by a resident individual is exempted from tax. A non-resident individual will be taxed only on income earned in Malaysia. With the availability of potential tax savings, government incentives and complex tax implications, it is wise to consult tax experts to advise you on the best way to declare your income to enjoy the maximum tax savings you are entitled to.

The rate of tax depends on the individual’s resident status. Generally, an individual who is in Malaysia for at least 182 days in a calendar year is regarded as a tax resident.

A resident individual is taxed on chargeable income after deducting personal reliefs at a graduated rate from 0% to 30% with effect from the year of assessment 2020.
