Real Property Gains Tax (RPGT) in Malaysia

Real Property Gains Tax

Under the recent Budget 2013 announcement, the Malaysian Government has proposed a 5% increase to the current RPGT rates to further curb speculative activities in the local real property market. With effect from 1 January 2013, the revised RPGT rates for the disposal of real property and shares in real property companies will be as follows:

Holding Period RPGT Rates
Companies Individual (Citizen & PR) Individual (Non-Citizen)
Up to 2 years 15% 15% 15%
Exceeding 2 until 5 years 10% 10% 10%
Exceeding 5 years 0% 0% 0%

The following RPGT exemptions which were implemented under the previous Budget 2012 continue to be available:
  1. RPGT exemption on gains from the disposal of one residential property once in a lifetime to individuals;
  2. RPGT exemption of up to RM 10,000 or 10% of the net gains, (whichever is higher) from the disposal of real property by individuals; and
  3. RPGT exemption on gains arising from the disposal of real property between family members (e.g. husband and wife, parents and children, and grandparents and grandchildren)
