e-Invoice Malaysia

e-Invoicing implementation in Malaysia for certain taxpayers is on 1 June 2024 and will be mandatory for all businesses in Malaysia from 1 January 2027.

What is e-invoice?

  • Introduced and will be implemented by Malaysian Inland Revenue Board (IRB)

  • Contains the same essential information as a traditional document, for example, supplier’s and buyer’s details, item description, quantity, price excluding tax, tax, and total amount, which records transaction data for daily business operations

  • Replaces paper or electronic documents such as invoices, credit notes and debit notes

How does the e-invoice work?

  • Taxpayers to transmit e-invoices to IRB using the suitable mechanism as follows;

- For SMEs, which do not have Application Programming Interface (API), IRB will provide a free web-based portal which requires manual input of data into the system.

- For large taxpayers or businesses that have high-volume transactions, to develop their own API which requires upfront investment in technology and adjustments to their existing systems.

  • The e-invoice will then be submitted to IRB’s central platform for real-time verification via the proposed Continuous Transaction Controls (CTC) Clearance model.

  • Upon verification, the CTC model will issue a URL Link containing a QR code to the supplier containing the information on the e-invoice.

  • The supplier then has to print the QR code on the invoice before they send the e-invoice to the buyer.

  • The IRB foresees that the CTC model verification process will be seamless and done in real-time.

  • For SMEs, which do not have Application Programming Interface (API), IRB will provide free web-based solutions which require manual input of data into the system.


  • To digitalise tax administration on transactions between a supplier and a buyer

  • To increase tax compliance
