As highlighted in our Tax Whiz dated 26 March 2020 and 15 April 2020, we have prepared a summary of the specific Indirect Tax measures introduced by the Government due to the impact of COVID-19 via the above link and the Summary is updated from time to time. 

Specifically on payment of tax to the Royal Malaysian Customs Department (“RMCD”) which is due on 31 March 2020 and 30 April 2020, any associated penalty will be remitted in full provided the payment is received by the RMCD by 31 May 2020.  However, the RMCD has informed that the late payment penalty will still be generated in the system due to system constraints, although the penalty is expected to be remitted in full by the RMCD as soon as possible. 

As for the submission of returns/ declarations due on 31 March 2020 and 30 April 2020, the RMCD has also clarified that no prosecution shall be instituted for the offence in respect of failure to submit the returns/ declarations by the statutory due dates.

For more details, please refer to the Summary which can be accessed via the above link.
