The EA Form 2017 Seminar

Date : 26th February 2018
Time : 9:00 am To 5:00 pm
Venue : Armada Hotel, Petaling Jaya


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 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 relief will be useful for those involved in preparing Form EA and Form E.
