Monthly Tax Deduction (PCB)

PCB, or Potongan Cukai Bulanan is a monthly tax deduction that is retained by employers and is paid over to Inland Revenue Board (IRB) or Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri (LHDN).

This mechanism is designed to avoid the issues that come with requiring payment of a large sum at the end of the year.

How to pay PCB?

PCB payment should be made with the submission of Form CP39 (statement of monthly tax deduction).

Please note that Employers will need to submit Form CP39 online to the Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia (LHDN) with effect from Sept 1, 2019.
