CIMB Bank initiates direct tax payments on its banking platforms
By Gloria Mathias
CIMB Bank and CIMB Islamic Bank have introduced Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri’s new integrated e-billing feature (LHDN) within its BizChannel and Clicks platforms.
The company has implemented a new e-billing service, making it easier for businesses to fulfil their tax obligations through a seamless and convenient process, as they can now pay their taxes directly through online banking platforms.
Customers must obtain a Bill Number through LHDN’s one-stop MyTax service portal to initiate a payment. They can log in to the BizChannel or Clicks platforms, navigate to the bill payment section, select ‘LHDN e-Billing’ as the biller and enter the Bill Number. The taxpayer’s details will be automatically tracked, and customers can proceed to pay directly from their accounts.
With the integration of LHDN’s e-billing system feature into CIMB’s platforms, each tax payment transaction will have its own unique number for LHDN’s reference. This will ensure greater accuracy and transparency, with secure payment validation through the direct linkage with LHDN.
Ahmad Shazli Kamarulzaman, Deputy CEO, Group Commercial Banking, CIMB Group said, “We are pleased to collaborate with LHDN to introduce their new e-billing feature in our banking platforms. This convenient feature offers a simplified and streamlined tax payment method for businesses, including corporates and SMEs. We are committed to providing innovative customer-centric solutions that address businesses’ evolving needs while providing our customers a secure and seamless banking experience.”
Marsidi Bin Zelika, Director of Revenue Collection Department, Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri Malaysia noted, “We are delighted to have collaborated with CIMB Bank on this e-Billing project. The CIMB team’s dedication and expertise in the financial industry have been instrumental in successfully implementing this initiative.
The new e-billing feature supports other tax payment methods available via CIMB, such as FPX and online credit card payments via the MyTax portal, as well as the Bank’s ATMs and over-the-counter at all CIMB branches nationwide.
