4.When we run thru the same scenario using LHDN PCB calculator in the website, we managed to get the tax computed for off-cycle was only RM5152 after adding zakat deduction in normal cycle into the computation.

Therefore, it concludes that during bonus processing in off-cycle after normal cycle in the same month payroll cycle, zakat that had already been deducted in normal cycle was not taken into calculation during tax computation in off-cycle resulting to the tax amount in off-cycle in excess equivalent to the zakat amount.
