For your information, the Special Voluntary Disclosure Program (SVDP) was announced in the 2019 Budget Speech and launched from 3 November 2018 to 30 June 2019, to allow taxpayers to voluntarily declare unreported income, including funds in offshore accounts, at a reduced penalty rate of only 10% to 15%, instead of the usual penalty rate of 80% to 300%.

The Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia (IRBM) has identified nearly 80,000 individuals, companies or partnerships with income which do not match with the reported tax and may have under-declared their taxes.

Taxpayers are advised not to ignore the letter or email received, as reply should be made to the IRBM within 30 days, immediate action should be taken in reviewing tax records and voluntarily declare income and expenses within the offer period of 3 November 2018 to 30 June 2019.
