Q: My company has received financial assistance of RM 600 per month from Wage Subsidy Programme (WSP) in May 2020, is this amount taxable? I have paid the amount to my staff as part of his salary within 7 days, can my company claim tax deduction for this amount paid?
A: All grants and subsidies given by the government are tax exempted. However, the grants or subsidies that are being used to pay out salary are likewise not deductible.
