Businesses of all sizes must pay the right amount of tax. Being aware of the current legislation and rules around corporate tax in the country in which you operate is a crucial step towards ensuring you are paying the correct amount.
Before you begin the tax return process, therefore, it is important that you understand how to ensure your company is compliant.
Updates from the Malaysian Revenue Board
Here in Malaysia, corporate tax compliance has changed in recent years. Under the self-assessment regime, the Malaysian Inland Revenue Board has passed the responsibility of computing tax to taxpayers, so it is important that the correct amount of tax is calculated. Failure to do so will result in additional tax and heavy penalties being imposed.
It is important to note that all companies and businesses which derive Malaysian income are required to submit an annual tax return. But continuous changes in the tax legislation are putting increasing pressure and burden on taxpayers to ensure that their tax returns have been correctly prepared. With field audit being conducted by the Malaysian Inland Revenue Board, the prospect of additional tax and penalties are high.
