Good news to Property Buyers (and Property Developers...)

The government re-introduces the Home Ownership Campaign (HOC), which offers stamp duty exemption for name transfer letters and financing agreements for properties priced from RM300,000 to RM2.5 million, and 100% stamp duty exemption for the financing agreements.

The exemption for name transfer letters applies to the first RM1 million of the property value, while the exemption for the financing agreements is 100%.

The exemption is applicable to the sale and purchase agreements (SPAs) inked between June 2020 and May 2021, subject to a minimum
10% discount provided by developers.

Lastly, something for manufacturers...

The PM announces a 0% tax rate across 10 years for new investments of RM300 million to RM500 million in fixed assets for manufacturers, expanded to 15 years for investments above RM500 million.

The location transfer and operation ramp-up must be done within a year from the approval date, while the amount must be invested within 3 years.
