Capital Gains Tax
The scope of the Income Tax Act 1967 has been expanded to tax gains or profits from the disposal of capital assets. Notwithstanding the above, gains or profits from the disposal of capital assets situated in Malaysia are exempted from tax pursuant to Paragraph 38, Schedule 6 of Income Tax Act 1967 except for gains or profits from the disposal of shares of companies incorporated in Malaysia that are not listed on the stock exchange as well as shares of controlled companies incorporated outside Malaysia holding real property directly or indirectly in Malaysia. This effectively means that in respect of capital assets situated in Malaysia, only the disposal of unlisted shares of companies incorporated in Malaysia and shares of controlled companies incorporated outside Malaysia which hold real property directly or indirectly in Malaysia are taxable.
Real Property Gains Tax
Whether it’s a property investor, an owner simply looking to sell his home to purchase a dream home or a corporate group engaging in a corporate restructuring exercise, it is important to be aware of all costs associated with a real estate transaction including Real Property Gains Tax (RPGT) in Malaysia. Real property is defined to mean any land situated in Malaysia and any interest, option and other right in or over such land. The effect of the definition of real property is that RPGT can be levied on interests or ownerships which amount to less than a full title to the land. RPGT is a form of capital gains tax levied on profits arising from the disposal of real property or Real Property Company (RPC) shares.
With effect from 1 January 2024, the RPC provisions in the RPGT Act 1976 shall not apply to an acquisition or a disposal of any shares by persons chargeable to Capital Gains Tax, except for a Labuan entity as provided under the Labuan Business Activity Tax Act 1990.
