MDBC: KPMG 2021 Budget Briefing

November 23, 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Dear MDBC Members,

Malaysia’s Budget 2021 “Stand United, We Shall Prevail” was unveiled on 6 November 2020. The Government has declared that the budget focuses on the Rakyat’s well – being, business continuity, and economic resilience amid the COVID – 19 pandemic. According to the Government, various measures are put in place to tackle the adverse effects arising from the COVID – 19 pandemic, such as the introduction of new tax incentives to revitalize the Malaysian economy and encourage foreign investments into Malaysia.

The Government announced it also continues to support the Rakyat by expanding existing tax reliefs which would in turn reduce the financial impact on the Rakyat. To counter the various measures and generate additional revenue, the Government has proposed to tighten and revise the “sin tax” mechanism on tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes. The Government has also introduced proposals to simplify and relax conditions for special facilities in which certain industries can operate in.

KPMG Malaysia is pleased to conduct this upcoming webinar which will focus on the tax – related measures introduced in Budget 2021. The KPMG speakers will walk you through the Budget 2021’s key proposals and provide insights on how the proposals may impact individuals and businesses.

Date:  Monday, 23 November
Time:  14:30 – 16:00 hrs
Platform: Zoom
