Taxation of Unit Trust Funds in Malaysia

With effect from 1 January 2022, Unit Trust Funds (“UTFs”) which have been receiving Foreign Source Income (“FSI”) in the form of dividends, interest or rental are being subjected to income tax upon receipt in Malaysia. The introduction of a new withholding tax mechanism has also increased the administrative burden on the fund managers of the Retail Money Markets Funds ("RMMFs").

This webinar aims to provide participants with a working knowledge and understanding of the operational and regulatory framework of a UTF. Participants will be guided through the notable changes made to the above tax law, particularly when funds invest in foreign markets.

This will be supplemented by worked examples and a practical case study to guide participants through step-by-step in the preparation of the tax computation, as well as in claiming tax credits against the Malaysian tax on foreign taxes suffered on such income, depending on the taxes incurred at source in the jurisdiction where the investment is located.

Who should attend:

  • Finance directors and finance managers
  • Accountants and accounts executives
  • Tax controllers, managers, and executives
  • Academicians and accountancy students
8 June 2022, Wednesday
Time: 9.00 am – 1.00 pm
