Income Tax MTD/PCB Calculations + EPF & SOCSO Contributions & Claims (Latest Updates) by Pagadala Cyril Papiah
Date: 18 & 19 February 2019 (Monday & Tuesday)
Time: 9:00am to 5:00pm
Venue: Hotel Melia Kuala Lumpur (Across From Berjaya Times Square)
Introduction:
The EPF Act 1991 is a retirement scheme for employees. The SOCSO Act 1969 is an insurance scheme for Malaysian employees for employment injury or invalidity. Both employer and employee are required by law to contribute to EPF and SOCSO. Both schemes have benefits for employees and there are rules on how to avail of them.

The Monthly Tax Deduction (MTD) scheme is a compulsory pay-as-you-earn (PAYE) scheme whereby employers are required to deduct employees’ tax on a monthly basis using the schedule, formula, approved vendor software or e-calculator methods.    
     
This workshop describes the wages / remuneration for which there should be deduction and contribution for SOCSO, EPF and MTD; and also describes the benefits under SOCSO and EPF. Other employee tax issues are also discussed.

It also demonstrates how the MTD is computed using the manual formula method so that the participant is able to explain to other employees the process; and answer the golden question: ‘why does MTD vary from month to month?’.
