The main reason why employees work is because of wages. Employees expect employers to pay wages according to the agreed terms in the contract of employment.


On the other hand Malaysian laws also state how pay should be paid and the benefits that should be provided either in cash or in kind. Laws also require that employers deduct employees’ salary and contribute together with employers’ contribution to SOCSO and the EPF. Further the laws also require employers to deduct employees’ salary for income tax (MTD/ PCB).


The course looks at the various benefits-in-kind or cash that should be paid to employees as well as making the necessary deductions and contributions for SOCSO, EPF and income tax. All the latest amendments are discussed.
