Tan Nyat Chuan, Director of the Payment System Policy Department at Bank Negara Malaysia said that credit card holders will be given six months, starting January 2017, to familiarize themselves with the new system before it is implemented on July 2017.

“The targeted completion of the infrastructure rollout and card replacement is expected by Dec 31, 2016,” said Tan.

With the new pin and pay system, PIN enabled cards allows users to make a purchase without a signature. Instead, it uses a six-digit PIN. This new payment method is said to be more secure and safer than the current system.

Tan said that 44.3 million cardholders would be able to enjoy the new system, and added that by January 2018, cardholders will be able to pay for low-value transactions via a ‘tap-and-go’ system.

He said this at a roadshow jointly organized by Bank Negara, the Association of Banks in Malaysia, and the Association of Islamic Banking Institutions, in Miri Sarawak.


Wechat Pay

Tencent’s WeChat Wallet service is now available to users in Hong Kong — just as Apple is working to release its mobile payment system in the city later this year.

Hong Kong users who are part of the pilot programme will be able to link their Hong Kong credit cards to the service and purchase items using the WeChat app including movie and flight tickets.

A source close to the company said it may take “several months” before the payment service is rolled out to all WeChat users in the city. However, local users of WeChat Wallet now lack full access to all the features enjoyed in mainland China. For example, Hong Kongers are not able to transfer money to friends within the app or make in-store payments by having the cashier scan a QR code on their smartphone in a convenience store. Also missing is the Red Packet function, which allows WeChat users in China to send an amount of money to a group chat that is either identically or randomly split among other users who open the virtual red packet.

A Tencent spokesperson declined to comment on whether these features will eventually be made available to users in Hong Kong.

WeChat has already rolled out its WeChat Wallet service in South Africa, its first international market, where users can send money to each other and pay for purchases on their mobile device at over 24.000 merchants in the country. The company also rolled out cross-border payments for WeChat users in China, which allows them to pay for purchases made overseas using WeChat Wallet.

PayPal is allegedly set to gain a role in the Apple’s mobile payments service, online media outlet reports.


According to the source, eBay-owned PayPal has been pitching Apple on helping Apple bring its payments initiative to fruition.


PayPal is essentially willing to white-label parts of its payment service to be used in an Apple mobile payments system — anything from fraud detection to back-end infrastructure, even possibly down to the processing of payments.

Interbank transfer (IBG) fees had been reducing from RM 2 to RM 0.10 since May 2013. This is a effort by our Malaysia Government to push the online banking service to more people. This is my first time that using the service with the RM 0.10 transaction fees.

Even though the transaction fees already reduce from RM 2 to RM 0.10, but the bank still have another way to make money from the interbank transfer transaction fees, where they provide 2 difference choices for their client, the first selection is RM 0.10 with 1-2 days of waiting period, another selection is instant transaction with RM 2 per transfer.

Recently just rented out my new bought apartment and everything is confirm and going on smoothly until the step of tennancy agreement stemping procedure, as I have no experience at all on this. Because I pass the agreement to the runner to help me to do the stemping, so I need to calculate out the total cost of stemping plus the runner fees of RM 10.

The following are the description and the calculation of the fees:

Stamp duty is one of the method our government earns revenue.

When a property is transacted, stamp duty is imposed on the following manners:

1) When A Property Is Rented.

The tenancy is stamped with an amount calculated as follow:-

a) Firstly, calculate the annual rent (eg: RM600 per month x 12 months = RM7,200).
b) Then less RM2,400 from the annual rent (eg. RM7,200 – 2,400).  This is because the first RM2,400 is exempted from stamp duty which means that rent per month of RM200 need not pay stamp duty.
c) Next, calculate the stamp duty payable based on the following table:-

When the lease is for a period:-

1 year or less

more than 1 year but equal to 3 years or less than 3 years

Exceeding 3 years or more

For every RM250 or part thereof in excess of RM2,400




d) For every copy of the tenancy agreement a stamp duty of RM10 is chargeable.

2) When A Property Is Sold.

All transfers of property attract stamp duty regardless whether the acquirer gives consideration (value in money or kind example by exchange, as gifts from loves one) for the transfer or not.

The Malaysian government at times impose stamp duty exemption for certain property type for a certain period of time so as to encourage housing sale. Currently, no exemption is given.

Stamp duty for transfer of property is chargeable at the following rate:

Value Of Property Rate Of Stamp Duty %
Up to RM100,000 1
RM100,001 to RM500,000 2
RM500,001 onwards 3

3) When A Property Is Mortgaged

When a property is mortgaged, mostly likely the lender of the money will claim charge over the property, the lender does this by creating a Charge on the property.  Hence, a Charge is an instrument created by statute namely the National Land Code (NLC).  A Charge enable the Chargee (lender) a security for the loan granted to the Chargor (Borrower) over the property charged.

Stamp duty is calculated at the rate of about 0.5%.
