What is quit rent?

Quit rent, also known as cukai tanah in Malay, is the land tax imposed on private properties by the state governments in Malaysia. It is administered by the state’s Land and Mines Office also known as Pejabat Tanah dan Galian or PTG.

Unlike assessment which is billed half-yearly by local councils, quit rent is billed annually. Most states will require property owners to pay their quit rent by 31st May each year.

Beginning 2018, Selangor Quit rent created a new land tax to replace quit rent for strata properties, called the parcel rent. Several other major states such as Penang, Perak and Kuala Lumpur have also followed suit.

Property owners who live in Sarawak meanwhile, no longer have to pay quit rent! The state abolished all quit rent payments in 2016 – this applies for land conditioned for residential and agricultural purposes with an area of smaller than 100 acres (40.47 hectares).

Read our guide on Quit Rent, Parcel Rent & Assessment Rates in Malaysia to get a better understanding.

What is the rate of quit rent in each state?

The amount of quit rent charged depends on the size of the property. The size is multiplied by the specified rate, which differs from state to state. Within each state, there are also different rates depending on the location and type of property.

For example, a commercial property will incur a higher quit rent compared to a residential property while quit rent for a residential property in a city will be higher than a similar-sized property in a small town.

Quit rent = Size of property X Rate

Unfortunately, the quit rent rate for a certain state is not displayed on the respective PTG websites. Property owners are advised to call up their local PTG to get obtain the latest rates.

  • To check at your local council office if there is any outstanding rate, and settle it accordingly before a change of ownership takes place.

What happens if I don’t pay my quit rent?
