Stamp duty is a tax on instruments and most instruments used in the course of a transaction are liable to stamp duty. The Malaysian Stamp Duty Handbook is a practical and instructive guide on the Malaysian stamp duty law. This book explores the various instruments subject to stamp duty, important concepts, such as consideration and conveyance, how duty is to be computed in various situations, the reliefs that are available, and relevant offences and penalties under the law and examines the various issues taken into consideration by the courts when interpreting a taxing statute.
