  1. Hi Angelina,

    Based on the new PCB table for year 2015, may I know :

    1) IRB requires all employers to comply with “MTD as final tax” (I am not sure of the term that is used by IRB), would this effect the company partly or overall? If yes, please state.

    2) How the changes would effect PCB deduction and BIK deduction for expatriates?

    3) May I deduct the monthly tax (PCB) base on gross salary and exclude BIK?

    4) What are the advantages and disadvantages if the employer chooses to use PCB calculator on IRB website?

    Look forward to your reply.

    Thank you.
