Frequently Asked Question

An electronic invoice is the digitalization of transaction data between suppliers and buyers. It replaces paper or electronic documents such as invoices, credit notes, and debit notes. E-invoices cover typical transaction types in B2B, B2C, and B2G. For B2G transactions, the e-invoice process is similar to B2B. For B2C transactions, if the end consumer doesn't require an e-invoice for tax purposes, the supplier can issue a regular receipt or invoice following current practices. By the 7th of next month, suppliers need to issue consolidated e-invoices, reporting the total normal receipts or invoices issued to end consumers.

E-invoices apply to all taxpayers engaged in commercial activities in Malaysia. E-invoices contain basic information similar to traditional documents, recording transaction data for daily business operations, such as

  1. Detailed Information of the Supplier and Buyer,
  2. Product Description,
  3. Quantity,
  4. Untaxed Price,
  5. Taxes, and so on.
When to issue an e-invoice:

There are two situations that require issuing e-invoices: 1. Income proof: Whenever there is any sale or transaction, an e-invoice needs to be issued to confirm the taxpayer's income. 2. Expense proof: These documents cover the taxpayer's purchases or other expenditures, including returns and discounts. They can also be used to correct or subtract income based on recorded amounts. Additionally, in certain situations, taxpayers must issue self-billed e-invoices to record expenses, such as foreign transactions. For example, if a taxpayer purchases goods and/or services from a foreign supplier who doesn't use the Malaysian MyInvois system to issue invoices, the taxpayer will need to issue a self-billed e-invoice to record the expenses.

电子发票是供应商和买方之间交易的数字表示。电子发票取代了纸质或电子文档,例如发票、贷 方票据和借方票据。

电子发票包含相同的基本信息作为传统的 文档它记录日常业务运营的交易数据,列如:

  1. 供应商和买家的详细信息
  2. 商品描述
  3. 数量
  4. 不含税价格
  5. 税金等等

需要开具电子发票的场景: 1. 收入证明: 在商家销售商品或发生其他交易时,需要发出的电子发票用于确认商家(纳税人)的收入,同时也 能确保了交易的合法性和透明度。 2. 费用证明: 此类文件涵盖纳税人的购买或其他支出。它还包括退货和折扣。它还可用于根据记录的金额更正 或减去收入收据。此外,在某些情况下,纳税人必须开具自记电子发票来记录国外交易等费用。例 如,如果纳税人从外国供应商处购买商品和/或服务,并从不使用马来西亚 MyInvois 系统的外国 供应商处收到发票,则纳税人将需要开具自记式电子发票来记录费用。

  1. Address,

  3. Contact phone,
  4. Invoice details,
  5. Relevant transaction parties or companies,

3 All other taxpayers July 1, 2025

The annual turnover or income will be based on the audited financial statements or tax return forms for the year 2022 (as applicable). Once the implementation schedule for e-invoices is determined for a taxpayer, any subsequent changes in annual turnover or income will not alter the taxpayer's responsibility to implement e-invoices according to the above schedule. For new businesses or new transactions starting from 2023, the implementation date for e-invoices is July 1, 2025.

Types of e-invoices to be issued:

  1. Invoice (e-invoice): Detailed document listing and recording the business transaction between the supplier and the buyer, including issuing self-billed e-invoices to record expenses.
  2. Credit note: Issued by the supplier for returns, correcting errors, applying discounts, or reducing the value of the original e-invoice without involving a refund to the buyer.
  3. Debit note: Issued to add additional charges to a previously issued e-invoice.
  4. Refund: A confirmation document issued by the supplier acknowledging the refund of the buyer's payment. Used in cases where funds are returned to the buyer.

Example 1:
Mr. Jamal (supplier) sells 200 office chairs to Greenz Sdn. Bhd. (buyer) and issues an e-invoice for the transaction. Greenz Sdn. Bhd. pays RM2,000 for the purchase of 200 chairs (RM10 per chair). However, Greenz Sdn. Bhd. discovers that 8 sets of office chairs are defective and have been returned. Mr. Jamal issues a refund e-invoice of RM80 (i.e., RM10 X 8 for the defective chairs) to record the refund amount.

General Question

“e-Invoice” refers to the electronic method of recording every transaction. With a full-scale implementation of electronic invoicing, there will no longer be a need to retain physical receipts, and all the transaction records will have a backup in the LHDN database. When taxpayers file their annual tax returns, eligible expenses will be automatically reconciled in the system, eliminating the need for taxpayers to enter them manually.


To improve tax efficiency and transparency, which can reduce tax evasion and fraud.


According to Budget 2024, the Prime Minister has proposed that the first phase of mandatory e-invoicing will commence in August 2024, with the goal of fully implementing the e-invoicing policy by July 2025, which is 18 months ahead of the earlier projections.

Stage 2 Companies with a turnover of RM25 million and above 01/01/2025
Stage 3 All business 01/07/2025

根据《2024 年财政预算案》,首相建议从 2024 年 8 月开始强制实施电子发票的第一阶段,目标是到 2025 年 7 月全面实施电子发票政策,这比之前的预测提前了 18 个月。

大家可以这样理解,e-invoice 对于买家唯一的用途就是扣税。如果买家需要这笔交易作为扣税的项目,就 需要向商家索要e-invoice,因此e-invoice上也有一些内容与传统的发票不一样,如:

A self-billed e-invoice is issued by the buyer rather than the seller. Usually, a self-billed e-invoice is used when the buyer has a better understanding of the details of the transaction. This invoice can be served as a proof of the buyer’s expenditures.

E-Invoice Procedure

What is E-Invoice?

An electronic invoice is the digitized transaction data exchanged between suppliers and buyers. It replaces paper or electronic documents such as invoices, debit notes, and credit notes.

Electronic invoices cover typical transaction types like B2B, B2C, and B2G. For B2G transactions, the electronic invoicing process is similar to B2B. In B2C transactions, if the end consumer does not require an electronic invoice to support the transaction for tax purposes, the supplier may issue a regular receipt or invoice according to current practices. However, before the 7th of the following month, the supplier needs to issue a comprehensive electronic invoice, reporting the total normal receipts or invoices issued to end consumers.

Electronic invoices are applicable to all taxpayers engaged in business activities in Malaysia.
