Who are required to file CP58 form?

The Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia (IRBM) stipulates that if the company pays more than RM5,000 in cash or non-monetary incentives to the agent during the calendar year, they must prepare the CP58 form for each agent. These forms do not have to be submitted to the tax office, but if the tax office requires all information on the rewards paid, the company must provide all incentive payment information, including awards worth less than RM5,000.

What rewards must be reported?

The agent’s reward payments for achieving performance are mainly divided into two categories: cash reward & non-cash incentives

Cash Reward includes basic allowances, commissions or bonuses. If the company provides cash incentives to the agent, it must report the actual amount paid in the CP 58 form.

Material non-cash incentives includes incentives, tour packages, tickets accommodation, car, house and so on. For non-cash rewards, the company must prepare the CP 58 form based on the actual cost.
