Malaysia has a strict taxation policy based on location and residency. Any income derived from work performed in Malaysia is subject to Malaysian tax regardless of your residency status. Its advised to engage the services of a qualified accountant or lawyer to deal with any income thats derived in Malaysia.

Our local partner in Malaysia has an excellent financial management system for contractors, contact us for more information.

Non-residents are charged at a flat 28% only for income derived in Malaysia and are not able to claim tax relief. Residents are charged on income derived in Malaysia and income remitted to Malaysia. The residents tax is calculated according to income scales from 0% to a maximum of 28%. If you are in Malaysia for more than 182 days in any tax year (which runs 1st Jan to 31st Dec), then you are considered resident. There are opportunities for tax reliefs for local residents and generally fringe benefits are not taxable or are taxed at low rates.
