Tax treatment: The consultation fee received shall be reported under S4(a) of ITA 1967 as individual business income.

Case study 2

A specialist doctor with a Sdn Bhd has been involved in consultation services and medical-related fields (i.e. medical goods trading, pharmaceuticals, and health aids).
