Issuance of New Stamp Certificate and Stamp Official Receipt for Payment of Stamp Duty through STAMP

Circular No 300/2017
Dated 28 Dec 2017

To Members of the Malaysian Bar

Issuance of New Stamp Certificate and Stamp Official Receipt for Payment of Stamp Duty through STAMPS Effective from 1 Jan 2018

On 22 Dec 2017 we received a letter from Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri Malaysia (“LHDNM”), dated 30 Nov 2017, informing us that it will issue a new version of the format for the stamp certificate and stamp official receipt, from 1 Jan 2018 (Monday).  

The new version is to replace the existing stamp certificate and stamp official receipt, to enable the verification of the authenticity of stamp duty payments made through the Stamp Assessment and Payment System (“STAMPS”).

Documents that have been duly stamped using the earlier version (before 1 Jan 2018) of the stamp certificate and stamp official receipt are still valid as proof of stamping.

The letter from LHDNM — which also sets out the new version of the respective formats of the stamp certificate and stamp official receipt, together with the guidelines on verification of authentication of stamping — is attached for your reference.

Should you have any enquiries, please contact Scott Khor Tzher K’ng, Officer, by telephone at 03-2050 2106, or by email at scott@malaysianbar.org.my.

Thank you.
