Q: If a Malaysian employee goes for an overseas business trip for 2 weeks and causes him to be in Malaysia for less than 182 consecutive days, will this affect him to be a non-tax resident?
A: If the business trip is connected with the employee’s service in Malaysia such as attending conferences or seminars, the business trip will be considered as a temporary absence and does not count as leaving Malaysia.
Wishing you plentiful tax savings!
