Q: I work for a company in Malaysia who is a subsidiary of a Hong Kong company. If the parent company in Hong Kong pays me a special bonus in USD, is this taxable in Malaysia?
A: If this bonus paid by the Hong Kong company to you is for your employment exercised in Malaysia, then yes this is a Malaysia sourced income and is taxable in Malaysia.
Wishing you plentiful tax savings!
