What are Public Rulings ? They are rulings issued by the IRB to explain how certain incomes are taxed by the IRB. They are very technical and very detailed and can be confusing. They can be viewed at

There is only “Yes” and “No” to choose from. You cannot choose “No” because that would be telling the IRB that you have not complied to their rulings. If you put “Yes”, that would imply that you have read and understood all the rulings, which is something not quite possible for non-technical people. There are some experts who advise that we leave this item “Blank” without filling up just to ensure that we are not caught unaware of things we do not know. There is no right or wrong to this practice.

A7. Alamat Surat-menyurat / Correspondance Address

This can be found at the top left hand corner of your Form EA or EC. The number starts with an “E”.

A12. No. Akaun bank / Bank account number
Information on A11 & A12 is mainly for the IRB to make payment to your bank account directly if there is any overpayment of tax and for repayment cases.
