Update special allowance for small value assets 2021

Overview special allowance for small value assets 2021 :

Special allowances at special rates for small value assets have been introduced from the year of assessment (YA) 2006. A person is eligible to claim the special allowance if qualifying plant expenditure (QPE) has been incurred on such assets which are used for the purposes of his business.

From YA 2006 to YA 2020, there have been changes in the value of the assets referred to as small value assets.

In addition, the limitation in respect of the maximum amount of QPE that can be claimed as special allowances for small value assets in a YA has also been amended.

However, such limitations are only applicable for certain companies depending on the paid-up capital of the ordinary shares, the gross income from a business and the indirect or direct shareholding of the relevant company.

The Small Value Assets (SVA) have been increased from RM1,300 to RM2,000 each in YA2020. On 21st July 2021, Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia (IRBM) has issued a public ruling to further clarified on this allowance.
