Tenancy Agreement Stamp Duty Calculator

How much is the stamp duty for a tenancy agreement?

The stamp duty for a tenancy agreement is payable by the tenant whereas the copy is payable by the landlord. The stamp duty for a tenancy agreement in Malaysia is calculated as the following:

1-year tenancy agreement
RM1 for every RM250 of the annual rental above RM2,400. The stamp duty is free if the annual rental is below RM2,400.

Tenancy agreement between 1 to 3 years
RM2 for every RM250 of the annual rent above RM2,400. The stamp duty is free if the annual rental is below RM2,400.

Over 3-years tenancy agreement
RM4 for every RM250 of the annual rental above RM2,400. The stamp duty is free if the annual rental is below RM2,400.

To make things easier, you can follow this formula:
Calculation example:

If you want to rent out your unit at RM2,700 per month, your annual rental would be RM32,400 (RM2,700 per month x 12 months).


As the first RM2,400 is exempted from stamp duty, the taxable rental amount would be RM30,000 (RM32,400– RM2,400).
The stamp duty would be charged according to the duration of the tenancy (refer to the amounts at the start of this segment).
As the case for this example (rent of RM2,700 per month), the final stamp duty fee is as the following:

1 year or less:
[(2700 x 12) – 2400]/ 250 x RM1 = RM120

Two copies need to be stamped, one for the landlord and one for the tenant. The additional copy of the stamped tenancy agreement is RM10.

> 1 to 3 years:
[(2700 x 12) – 2400]/ 250 x RM2 = RM240

> 3 years:
[(2700 x 12) – 2400]/ 250 x RM4 = RM480

It is best to get original copies stamped for each party; one for the tenant, one for the landlord, and another one for the agent (if applicable). Also note that if the amount you get after you deduct the exemption of RM2,400 from the rental per annum is NOT a multiple of 250, you need to round that figure up to the nearest (and highest) 250.
