Special Voluntary Disclosure Programme 2.0
The Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia (HASiL) announced that voluntary disclosures through the Special Voluntary Disclosure Program (SVDP) 2.0 can be made from June 6, 2023, until May 31, 2024.
SVDP 2.0 is an initiative by HASiL to support sustainability in national tax administration in line with the concept of Malaysia Madani.
This program offers an opportunity for both new and existing taxpayers to improve their tax compliance based on the A.E.S. (Awareness, Education, Services) concept practiced at HASiL.
SVDP 2.0 provides taxpayers with the opportunity to voluntarily report their income and tax computations accurately and in accordance with the prevailing regulations of HASiL while encouraging timely tax payments.
This program is available to all categories of taxpayers (except for employers) and offers a penalty rate of 0 percent.
Voluntary disclosures can be made through the following methods:
a. For new taxpayers:
Income Tax Return Form (BNCP) / Real Property Gains Tax Form (BNCKHT) should be submitted within the SVDP 2.0 period either through e-Filing / e-CKHT or manually.
b. For existing taxpayers:
i. BNCP / BNCKHT Not submitted:
BNCP / BNCKHT should be submitted within the SVDP 2.0 period either through e-Filing / e-CKHT or manually.
ii. Having submitted BNCP but unreported income exists:
Taxpayers are required to submit voluntary disclosure within the SVDP 2.0 implementation period, through the SVDP 2.0 Link on the IRBM Official Portal https://www.hasil.gov.my / MyTax by using the SVDP 2.0 Additional Income Reporting Form and attach the tax computation.
The tax computations are only required to be submitted by taxpayers under the companies, businesses and partnerships file category
c. For voluntary disclosures involving transfer pricing issues
The Voluntary Disclosure Return Form for Transfer Pricing Cases can be downloaded from the official HASiL portal.
The completed form along with attachments should be submitted to the relevant HASiL office handling the taxpayer's file or to the nearest HASiL office.
d. For stamp duty taxpayers
Documents/agreements should be submitted through the Stamp Assessment and Payment System (STAMPS) for the endorsement process.
HASiL will accept voluntary disclosure of information made during the SVDP 2.0 period in good faith.
Further review, either tax audit or investigation will not be conducted for the assessment years related to the voluntarily disclosed income.
