I would like to start a business in breeding arowana fish. I would like to know what are the tax incentives or grants available for breeders of arowana fish (ornamental fish).
Thank you.


• With regards to tax incentive, breeding of arowana fish is a promoted activity under the Promotion of investments Act 1986 under the category of spawning, breeding and culturing of aquatic product. A company that engaged in this activity is eligible for pioneer status or investment tax allowance.The details and the conditions of the incentive can be obtained from:

Malaysia Industrial Development Authority (MIDA),
BLock 4, Plaza Sentral,
Jalan Stesen Sentral 5,
Kuala Lumpur Sentral, 509470 Kuala Lumpur.

• Another incentive available for this activity is deduction of allowance under the Income Tax (Allowance for Increased Export) Rules 1999 [P.U.(A) 128/1999] which reduce the statutory income of a business. The amount of allowance to be deducted is equivalent to 10% of the value of increased export and shall not exceed 70% of statutory income each year of assessment. Any unabsorbed amount can be carried forward until fully utilized.
The Income Tax Rules can be obtained from Percetakan Negara Malaysia.
