The exemption of foreign source income - what next

The exemption of foreign source income - what next
View Full Size

Confusion on the exemption of foreign source income

On 31st December 2022, our government has agreed to exempt taxation on foreign source income (FSI) for resident taxpayers to ensure the smooth implementation of the tax initiative, said the Ministry of Finance (MoF).

The tax exemption is effective from Jan 1, 2022 to Dec 31, 2026.

Subject to Inland Revenue Board criteria and guidelines, income tax exemption on dividends will be given to companies or limited liability partnerships while individuals will be tax-exempted for all types of income.

Exclusion on the exemption

The exemption on foreign source income does not apply to company that receives income from renting properties overseas, interest income and royalty income.

These incomes will be subjected to Malaysia tax upon remittance into Malaysia.

Double Tax Relief

Relief from double taxation can be provided under two ways namely exemption method and tax credit method. Under the exemption method, specific income is taxed in one of the two countries and exempted in another country.

If the Malaysian company suffered tax on the rental/interest/royalty income which is remitted into Malaysia, a taxpayer can claim double tax relief under Section 132 or single tax relief under Section 133.

Residential Tenancy Act Malaysia

Residential Tenancy Act Malaysia
View Full Size

What is Residential Tenancy Act Malaysia?

The proposed Residential Tenancy Act (RTA) by the Ministry of Housing and Local Government (KPKT) will change the rental market in Malaysia.

There is no specific legal framework for landlords and tenants in Malaysia now.

 

The Objectives of RTA are to :

  1. protect homeowners’ and tenants’ rights.

  2. prepare a uniform template for the residential tenancy agreement.

  3. establish a tribunal to resolve disputes between homeowners and tenants.

  4. set a notice period for tenants to move out.

 

Security and Utility Deposits

An RTA proposes a two-month deposit and a one-month utility deposit.

An RTA proposes deposits to be “parked” with a government agency.

This is to ensure that the authorities would be able to address any conflict between landlords and tenants later on.

In the event that no other expenses have been incurred, the security deposit would then be returned to the tenant once the tenancy agreement expires.

Concerns

  1. Why park the deposits received with a government agency?

  2. How long will the agency refund the deposit upon termination/expiration of tenancy period?

Shareholders' rights Malaysia

Shareholders' rights Malaysia
View Full Size

Rights of shareholders Companies Act 2016

A basic business necessity is having an effective way to obtain adequate funding whenever needed for operations and growth. A frequent method used to raise capital injection is by way of allotment of new shares in the company, and another method is to obtain a loan from a financial institution.

Allotment of new shares

According to Section 75 and 76 of the Companies Act (CA), 2016 governed the power to allot new shares in the company. There is another section of the act that provides default pre-emptive rights to new shares issued by a company, in which the new shares rank equally to existing shares as to voting or distribution rights.

This means that any allotment of new shares must first be offered to the existing shareholders. The company is only allowed to offer to any third party to subscribe to the new share if the existing shareholder rejected such offer.

The reason for such pre-emption rights is to protect the existing shareholder to ensure the shareholder is aware of any potential movement in shares to avoid any dilution of their voting or distribution rights.

Any Exception?

Is there any solution that allows the company to offer the allotment of new shares directly to a third party? The answer is yes.

Section 85 (1) of CA, 2016 stated that “Subject to the constitution, where a company issues shares which rank equally to existing shares as to voting or distribution rights, those shares shall first be offered to the holders of existing shares in a manner which would, if the offer were accepted, maintain the relative voting and distribution rights of those shareholders”.

Therefore, the company’s constitution would need to be amended to waive the default policy and allow for this approach.

Final Words

In conclusion, the company must decide whether to remain the default rights stated in the act without amending the constitution. This decision is crucial as any policy adopted in the constitution shall be most beneficial to the company.
