There are new version Form CP21, CP22, CP22A (version Amendment 1/2021) released by IRMB.

Note: Effective 01 Jan 2021, Form CP22 is generated using Business Intelligence Publisher (BIP) instead of SQR. The existing SQR process gpmytx02.sqr would be just available for a year to generate From CP22 prior to Jan 2021. The SQR process will be de-supported from 01 Jan 2022.
Form CP22 in BIP format is delivered with assumption that end user environment does support the BIP Reporting Template.
Oracle BIP is an enterprise reporting solution that streamlines report and form generation.
BI Publisher enables you to design and create report layout templates with the more common desktop applications of Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat, and renders XML data based on those templates.
This approach to reporting can dramatically reduce report maintenance, enabling power business users to adjust report templates easily.

Income tax Rates for 2022 1st Jan 2022

There is no legislative update from the Government of Malaysia regarding the income tax slabs for tax year 2022. So, the tax has to be calculated based on 2021 rates only.

In PeopleSoft, we need to add a new record in the bracket “TAX BR SCALE” and append the income tax rates for 2022 which are same as the rates of 2021 in order to calculate the monthly income tax for 2022.
