LHDN announced changes to the EA Form 2016 and C.P.8D Forms in early 2017. There have been many changes made to both the EA Form 2016 and C.P.8D forms.

In the EA form 2016, many fields that were not used regularly have been removed. Most of these fields are related to detailed Benefit in Kind information, making the Form more streamlined. At the same time several new fields have also been added. Some of the these fields are new to the system and the other new fields required more detailed information from the existing calculations.

One other major change for year 2016 onwards is for the CP8D form. The new directive requires all employees to be included in the CP8D file.

Condition for 2016 and later :

An employer is required to complete this statement on all employees for the year 2016.

Condition for year 2015 and earlier :

An employer is required to fill in this section if there is any employee whose annual gross remuneration is RM34,000 and above OR for any employee whose annual gross remuneration is less than RM34,000 but the monthly gross remuneration is RM2,800 and above (inclusive of bonus but excluding remuneration in arrears in respect of preceding years) for whichever month in the year 2015.
