Scope of Taxation

An individual who is resident in Malaysia is taxable on all income accruing in or derived from Malaysia and on income received from outside Malaysia. The scope of taxation of an individual depends on his resident status.

However, with effect from the year of assessment 2004, income received in Malaysia from outside Malaysia is exempted from tax. Hence, an individual, either or non-resident, is taxable only on income accruing in or derived from Malaysia.
