Form E is a declaration made by the employer to Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri (LHDN) or Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia (IRBM) on the number of employees, total remuneration paid to them, as well as the total amount of tax deductions for the year. It is compulsory for all employers in Malaysia to submit Form E, regardless of their size or industry.
Form E is typically submitted together with C.P. 8D, which is a detailed breakdown of the remuneration paid to each employee. Employers can submit Form E and C.P. 8D electronically through the LHDN's e-Filing portal, or manually by post.
The deadline for submitting Form E is 31st March of the following year. For example, Form E for the year 2022 must be submitted by 31st March 2023.
How to fill in Form E
Form E can be downloaded from the LHDN's website. The form is divided into two parts:
Part 1: This section contains general information about the employer, such as the employer's name, address, and contact details.
Part 2: This section contains information about the employer's employees, such as the employee's name, NRIC number, and total remuneration paid for the year.
Employers must complete all relevant sections of Form E accurately and completely. If there are any errors or omissions, the LHDN may impose a penalty.
How to submit Form E
Employers can submit Form E electronically through the LHDN's e-Filing portal, or manually by post.
To submit Form E electronically, employers must first register for an e-Filing account. Once registered, employers can log in to the e-Filing portal and select the "e-Form" tab. Then, select the "Non-Individual" option and then the "e-E" option.
Employers will then be able to upload their Form E and C.P. 8D files. Once the files have been uploaded, employers must review the information carefully and then submit the form.
To submit Form E manually, employers must print out the completed form and C.P. 8D files and mail them to the following address:

Penalties for late submission of Form E
Employers who fail to submit Form E on time may be imposed a penalty of up to RM20,000. The LHDN may also impose additional penalties if the employer fails to provide accurate or complete information on the form.
Form E is an important tax form that all employers in Malaysia must submit annually. Employers should ensure that they complete and submit Form E on time and accurately to avoid any penalties.
