Incentives for Relocating Manufacturing Activities to Promoted Areas

In order to reduce the costs of doing business and to provide a competitive business environment, existing companies which relocate their manufacturing activities to the promoted areas are eligible for the following incentives:

1 Pioneer Status with income tax exemption of 100% of statutory income for a period of 5 years. Unabsorbed capital allowances as well as accumulated losses incurred during the pioneer period can be carried forward and deducted from the post pioneer income of the company; or
2 Investment Tax Allowance of 100% on the qualifying capital expenditure incurred within a period of 5 years. The allowance can be utilised to offset against 100% of the statutory income for each year of assessment. Any unutilised allowances can be carried forward to subsequent years until fully utilised.

Applications for this incentive should be submitted to the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA).
