If your employee is newly taxable**, he/she must register an income tax reference number. To do so, your employee can do the following:

1. Register at the nearest IRBM (Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia) or LHDN (Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri) branch OR register online via e-Daftar

2. Admins can complete Form CP22 directly in Talenox and submit the hardcopy to LHDN office branch where the employee is exercising their employment.

3. Provide copies of the following documents:

  • Latest salary statement (EA/EC form) or pay slip

  • Identification Card (IC) / Police IC / Army IC / International Passport

  • Marriage certificate (if applicable)

4. e-Filing first timers must apply for a PIN number at the nearest IRBM/LHDN branch (required for first-time login)

**Any individual employee earning a minimum of RM34,000 after EPF deductions must register a tax file. This translates to roughly RM2,833 per month after EPF deductions, or about RM3,000 net. It should be noted that this takes into account all the individual employee's income, and not only the individual employee's salary from work.
