2015 Retrenchment / Job Cuts / Lay Off in Malaysia - Further Job Cuts and Lay Off


Earlier last month, I shared on some retrenchment news in Malaysia.

Since then, there are more announcement on job cuts as below:





All of the above were announced in September 2015.

With increasing cost of living and limited job opportunities, it's going to be a tough time ahead for those affected by retrenchment. For those who's still earning, it's better to start saving for your emergency fund now.

IRB@LHDN - 2014 Overpaid Tax Refund

I submitted my 2014 IRB@LHDN tax return on 26 May 2015. By middle of July 2015, I have not received any emails or notification from IRB@LHDN with regards to my overpaid tax refund. So, in the middle of August, I filed a complaint to IRB@LHDN through their website, to enquire the status of my overpaid tax refund. Within the next working day, I received a reply from IRB@LHDN officer, informing that she had submitted my case to the local IRB@LHDN for further processing. And it will require 14 days before I can expect any reply from them.

One week later, I saw IRB@LHDN made the transfer to my bank account.

For those of you in same situation like me, I suggest you to file a complaint to IRB@LHDN through their website. Or, go to IRB@LHDN official website. Look for Feedback -> Customer Feedback Form -> Taxation Inquiry -> Tax Refund. You will need to fill in the form. So, make sure you have your tax return details with you.
