by - March 15, 2020

SushiVid Collaborate With LHDN To Educate Transparency On Tax With InfluencerSushiVid Sdn Bhd, ASEAN's leading influencer marketing company,  recently collaborated with Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri Malaysia (LHDNM) in an educational complimentary workshop. The workshop was made with an objective to create industry transparency and legitimize engagement of influencer marketing and to educate influencers to understand their responsibility as a taxpayer by providing insightful tips and guidance to the influencer. Thus the influencer will understand their responsibilities and rights as Malaysian citizens on tax declaration and tax benefits.

Influencer marketing is on the rise in recent years when more and more social media platforms and features are introduced to the market. Brands are becoming more willing to allocate a good amount of budget to engage influencers to help market their products and services via social media channels. According to Malaysian Digital Association (MDA), influencer marketing has now become one of the key channels in the marketing mix. In Malaysia, a micro-influencer starts with 10,000 followers and a hardworking influencer with this following can get an average of five campaigns in a month. 

It was made clear that according to LHDN, an individual who earns more than RM34,000 per annum (approximately RM2,833.33 per month) after EPF deductions will need to register a tax file. It is understood that an influencer earning more than RM3,000 per month from any sponsored content, paid review or any form of online business via social media may be subjected to income tax.

The influencer will have to understand that they need to make sure to get the necessary details (job scopes, invoices, statement) from any agency who appoint them, such as SushiVid, as these will ease them in filing their taxes
