What is Director Fee?


Director Fee is defined as the fee paid by the company to the company's director on annual basis, the fee is generally included retainer fees and meeting fees.


Usually, director fees are decided and needed to be approved by the company's shareholders during the shareholder's meeting.



Statutory Treatment of Director Fee


The director fee is only subjected to PCB.

The director fee is considered "Saraan Tambahan" - so its PCB calculation will be based on Saraan Tambahan.
