Flood affected SMEs in northern region get HRDF levy exemption

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 28: Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) affected by floods in the north of the country have been given an exemption of the levy to the Human Resource Development Fund (HRDF).

Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri Richard Riot Anak Jaem told reporters here today that the exemption would be from Jan 1 – June 30, 2018.

He was speaking at a press conference after officiating the two-day HRDF Conference and Exhibition 2017 from today.

“We have decided to give the affected SMEs in Penang, Kedah and Perlis the levy exemption to reduce their burden. Only those SMEs registered with the HRDF will be exempted,” he said.

According to the HRDF, there are about 2,500 SMEs just in Penang.

The HRDF levy is a mandatory payment imposed by the government on specific groups of employers for the purpose of employees training and skills upgrading.

Under the Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Bhd Act, certain categories of employers are liable to pay a Human Resource Development levy for each working employee at the rate of 1.0% of the monthly wage.

Meanwhile, Richard launched the HRDF Mobile App during the conference. It offers the latest updates on HRDF news, events and circulars for subscribers.

“The second phase of the app will offer greater value to subscribers as it allows employers and training providers to submit their registration and claims directly from mobile devices,” he said.

The HRDF was established in 1993 under the purview of the Human Resources Ministry.–Bernama
