KPMG not surprised by lack of tax cuts in Budget 2021


Given that the country is currently battling a pandemic, it would have been more rational if Budget 2021’s tax rate cut and increased tax reliefs were made effective when taxpayers report their 2020 income next year, KPMG Tax Services Sdn Bhd (KPMG) said.
