This is to inform you that Maersk A/S has been registered for Service Tax on Digital Services (SToDS) under Section 56C of the Malaysia Service Tax Act 2018 as a Foreign Registered Person.

The Malaysia Tax Registration number for Maersk A/S is 23000037.

Due to this, Maersk A/S is required to charge a service tax of 6% on the sale of digital service products invoiced to Malaysian customers and will be applied from 6 November 2023, to align with the go-live of the new finance system upgrade. From this date, invoices issued by Maersk A/S will include details such as the Maersk A/S tax registration number as well as the service tax of 6% levied on applicable services. The service tax will not apply to digital services invoiced to customers outside of Malaysia.

The relevant digital service products to which this new tax will apply are as follows:

  • Captain Peter
  • Emissions Dashboard
  • Any other future digital platform products

Please note that this SToDS registration is a limited tax registration for Maersk A/S. Maersk A/S is NOT registered for Service Tax in Malaysia for any other services and products that it sells, and as such all other products invoiced by Maersk A/S will remain outside the scope of the Malaysian service tax.

If you have any questions concerning the above, please reach out to your regular contact person.

Please note that the dates mentioned in this advisory are related to the upcoming system Go-Live. Our teams are dedicated to making this transition as smooth as possible for the parties involved. We will keep you informed about any updates or changes related to the upgrade.
