With regard to the elimination of double taxation, India applies a deduction, while Malaysia would use a credit method. Both countries also offer a tax-saving credit. In addition to a mechanism for the exchange of banking information for the tax administration, the new agreement also contains a limitation clause on benefits, a provision to combat abuse. This is provided for in the new double taxation agreement between India and Malaysia (DBAA), which entered into force on 26 December. Previously, this facility did not exist, which led to double taxation. The new agreement also introduced, in line with international practice, a new article on the taxation of capital gains on the sale of property. The new agreement, signed in May, will enter into force in India from 1 April. In the case of Malaysia, it entered into force on 1 January. The concept of service establishment was also introduced with a threshold of 90 days over a twelve-month period. On April 1, dividends paid by Indian companies to Malaysian investors or companies will attract a 5 percent lower withholding tax compared to 10 percent earlier.
