Venue: One World Hotel, Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
Date: 14 September 2017

Workshop Objective

The recent Finance Act 2017 has made some interesting changes to the Malaysian withholding tax regime, particularly with the widening of the withholding tax scope in relation to payment to non-residents in respect of services rendered offshore. Previously, only services rendered in Malaysia by non-residents were taxed. Another change sees the imposition of royalty withholding tax on any payment for the use of software to non-residents.

Apart from the above, the withholding tax provisions under the Income Tax Act 1967 place tremendous demand on the payers and hence, a good understanding of the Malaysian withholding tax regime is critical to avoid any potential of non-compliance penalties and might even reduce the cost of doing business!

Let us assist you in having a better understanding of the withholding tax regime and support you in complying with the withholding tax obligations.
