EA From 2018 Seminar

Date : 8th January 2019 / 20th February 2019
Time : 9:30am to 5:00pm
Venue : Armada Hotel, Petaling Jaya
Speaker : Mr. Krishnan Dorairaju


Employers have important responsibilities under the Income Tax Act (ITA) 1967 including monthly tax deduction (MTD), yearly reporting and filing of Form E and issuance of Form EA to the employees.

It is crucial to ensure that you are fully aware of the reporting and compliance requirements as well as the latest developments in this area. Mistakes are likely to be picked up by the Inland Revenue Board (IRB) during tax audits and penalties and compounds may be imposed. Monitoring and ensuring strict compliance is necessary to avoid increase in tax cost for the business.

The purpose of Form EA is to provide information to employees on their employment income to declare in their personal tax return (Form BE/B). As such, some understanding of the income tax treatment and rules for various types of remuneration package and tax reliefs will be useful in preparing Form EA and Form E.
