FAQ on 2% WHT deducted from payment by payer companies to agents, dealers, or distributors

Share the Post:

Section 107D was incorporated into the Income Tax Act of 1967 (ITA) on January 1, 2022.

It says that companies that make payments to agents, dealers, or distributors due to sales, transactions, or schemes must withhold tax at 2% of the gross amount.

This applies to payments made to agents, dealers, or distributors who are individuals and tax residents of Malaysia and who have received more than RM100,000 (in cash or other forms) from the company in the immediate-preceding year.
