Table of Contents

What is Borang E/Form E?

Form E serves as a declaration report to inform LHDN of the number of employees in the company and their income details. Employers must submit general Form E no later than 31st March every year.

Meanwhile, the E filing submission deadline is one month after the due date (30th April). Failure to do so may result in a fine of RM200 to RM20,000, or imprisonment for a term not exceeding 6 months, or both.

Are you obligated to submit Borang E / Form E?

Since 2016, all companies, with or without employees, must submit Form E to LHDN. This extends to dormant companies and companies not in operation. As of 2021, this extends to dormant companies, limited liability partnerships, trust bodies and co-operative societies.* Individuals (freelancers, gig workers, etc.) are not obligated to file Form E.


Understanding Form E

Form E serves to report the total number of employees in a company, the number of new employees, employer’s details, employees’ details and their incomes.
