    DIRECT TAXES AND INDIRECT TAXES - A COMPARISON
    BETWEEN ENTITIES IN MALAYSIA AND LABUAN*

    by
    GOH KA IM

    IN THIS ARTICLE, GOH KA IM HIGHLIGHTS THE DIFFERENCES IN TAX TREATMENTS FOR ENTITIES IN MALAYSIA AND LABUAN.

    Introduction

    Much has been written about the beneficial tax treatment currently enjoyed by Labuan entities in the Labuan International Business and Financial Centre (“Labuan IBFC”), particularly under the Labuan Business Activity Tax Act 1990 (“LBATA”).

    Such beneficial tax treatment is in relation to the direct tax on profits imposed on Labuan entities. However, there are other beneficial tax treatments relating to indirect taxes that are also made available to Labuan entities which will be highlighted in this article together with a comparison of the different tax treatments for Labuan entities and Malaysian entities.

    Labuan Business Activity Tax Act 1990

    Under the LBATA, a Labuan entity carrying on a Labuan trading activity is charged tax at a rate of 3% on the net audited profits reflected in the audited accounts of the Labuan entity for each year of assessment. However, a Labuan entity carrying on a Labuan trading activity has the option of electing to be charged tax at a fixed rate of RM20,000 (approximately USD6,000) for each year of assessment. Once this option has been exercised, a Labuan entity would not be subject to the 3% tax charge.
