STI Tax Incentives

A vast array of fiscal incentives in the form of tax exemption as well as double deduction for R&D expenses, has been provided by the Malaysian government as an agenda to promote R&D. Studies have shown that R&D tax incentives can be an effective instrument for inducing a certain degree of private sector research. Tax incentives can increase private research spending by an amount equal to the loss in tax revenue on average, depending on their design.
