Withholding Tax – Unravelling The Issues

Taxpayers are required by Malaysian law to withhold tax when making certain payments to non-residents.  As cross border transactions are common in today’s businesses, a good understanding of the developments relating to withholding tax is essential in managing and structuring cross border transactions and ensuring compliance with the tax laws to avoid the imposition of penalties.
