The 31 March 2018 statutory deadline for the filing of the 2017 Form e-E has just passed. Is it too late now to file? Don’t panic just yet.
The good news is that based on the Income Tax Return Form Filing Programme for the year 2018, the Malaysian tax authorities have allowed for a one-month grace period (until 30 April 2018) for the submission of the 2017 Form E via e-filing. So, you still have a small window to catch before the deadline.
Most people think that preparing the Form EA (annual income statement) and Form E together with the CP 8D (Return of Remuneration by an Employer) is just a click of a button in the payroll system. For those involved, you know that this is not always the case. As an employer, how comfortable are you with your company’s Form EA and Form E reporting process?
Let’s test your understanding of the process.
