Globalisation is driving corporations to explore new markets for growth opportunities and increase their cross border transactions. Are you able to confidently apply the latest withholding tax concepts in your daily business operations? Separately, the Finance Act 2020 was gazetted and had been in operation since. There are several new provisions found in the Finance Act 2020 that aim to strengthen the enforcement for transfer pricing (“TP”) compliance in Malaysia. This comes in the backdrop of increased enforcement by the Inland Revenue Board ("IRB"), via updating the timeline for furnishing TP Documentation (“TPD”) in the Malaysian TP Guidelines ("MTPG"), released on 29 January 2021.
