The Prime Minister of Malaysia announced
on 25 March 2020 that the Movement Control Order (MCO) implemented throughout Malaysia from 18 to 31 March 2020 will be extended until 14 April 2020
Arising from the foregoing development, it is expected that the various Ministries and Governmental Departments will review their Frequently Asked Questions (‘FAQs’) to provide guidance as to how the extension of the MCO affects the timelines stated in their FAQs. For example, certain FAQs provide that the time frame for filing documents commences on 1 April 2020 while certain others have extended payment deadlines to 30 April 2020. It remains to be seen whether the extension of the MCO will result in any change being made to the relevant stipulated dates or periods.
We will endeavour to issue updates as and when clarifications are issued by the relevant authorities.
