Malaysian Income Tax Reporting System (MITRS): Scope Expanded

Letter from IRBM dated 28 September 2020

The Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia (IRBM) has introduced an online platform for electronically submitting tax returns called the Malaysian Income Tax Reporting System (MITRS), as stated in a letter dated 28 September 2020 to professional bodies.

The MITRS platform is developed based on the XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) format, an international standard for preparing and sharing business reports that use XML format to organise and manage electronic business information exchange.

The MITRS application has been opened for taxpayers' use from 1 September 2020.

Implementation of MITRS will be phased in starting with companies that are under tax audit or investigation.

These companies will be given the option and encouraged to submit their tax returns electronically through MITRS.

Further information on the implementation can be referred to the LHDNM official portal > ezHASIL >
