Upon completion of Foreign Sourced Income seminar, participants would be thoroughly equipped. Able to advise on FSI matters and confidently make a wise, informed decision on bringing back FSI, including applying the special remittance scheme.

2022 is an important year for every Malaysian to make a wise and informed decision. Whether to bring your FSI back into Malaysia to reap a high exchange sum, also to be eligible for the newly revised tax exemption. 

Extend exemption for Individual

The Government has acted promptly to extend the income tax exemption to Malaysian individuals to withdraw the earlier 3% tax rate on FSI received in Malaysia. 

However, uncertainties remained as to whether the Government would be hard-pressed by the global tax development, particularly the EU and OECD countries, in preventing harmful tax practices on the FSI regime.

Unique Remittance Scheme


On the interim period of 1.1.2022 – 30.6.2022, the Government has mooted a unique remittance scheme that allowed the repatriation of Malaysian derived income which has not been reported but wrongly diverted to overseas (foreign income). 

An income tax rate of 3% would be imposed, with the remittance supported by a declaration on 1.7.2022. The special remittance scheme only applies to Malaysian derived income underreported, wrongly reported for prior years of assessment 2021. IRB promises no tax audit, no tax investigation and no enquiries on the sum remitted.
