E-Invoicing Malaysia - Coverage


An e-Invoice is a digital representation of a transaction between a supplier and a buyer. e-Invoice replaces paper or electronic documents such as invoices, credit notes, and debit notes.

An e-Invoice contains the same essential information as a traditional document, for example, supplier’s and buyer’s details, item description, quantity, price excluding tax, tax, and total amount, which records transaction data for daily business operations.

Is e-invoicing mandatory in Malaysia?

Malaysia will introduce a countrywide e-invoicing mandate in June 2024.

The Malaysian government plans to introduce a Centralized Pre-Clearance CTC model on all transactions to increase efficiency and strengthen the tax administration. A gradual introduction of the obligation will commence in June 2024 and end in 2027.

Transaction Types Subject to E-Invoicing

e-Invoice covers typical transaction types such as

  • Business to Business (B2B),

  • Business to Consumer (B2C), and

  • Business to Government (B2G).

In relation to certain B2C transactions where e-Invoices are not required by the end consumers to support the said transactions for tax purposes, suppliers will be allowed to issue a normal receipt or invoice in accordance with the current practices adopted by suppliers. After a certain period or timeframe, suppliers would be required to aggregate the normal receipts or invoices issued to end

For B2G transactions, the e-Invoice flow will be similar to B2B.

e-Invoice applies to all taxpayers undertaking commercial activities in Malaysia.

This includes businesses engaged in the provision of goods and services and certain non-business transactions between individuals.
