That's two unrelated Qs

1.  He is under a Foreign Employment Contract. He is protected by Malaysian Employment Laws same as any locals. How can you regard as absence from work when you, as employer, have given written permission to IMM to allow him to travel back to India ? For accounting wise, just treat it as NPL.

2.  You have stated "interest income" and by remittance, all income is taxable and must be declared in your company yearly submitted accounts unless your accountant is good at window dressing the company accs. Why? Becuz the sky is so high.

Work is work
PR is PR
There is no connection.

Work is under Labour Laws
PR is under Immigration Laws and procedures

What point are you trying to raise? I am missing out.

Sorry, I am trying to say Income Tax Act 1967.
My question is Mr. Andrew, a Indian, was employed by a multi national company in Malaysia as a senior consultant. However, Mr. Andrew went back to Canada to visit his wife who was seriously ill but exceed 14 days. Is this counted as temporary absence?

I am not knowledgeable In Taxation.
Wait for others to reply your query.

If your are referring to the Come 2018, foreign workers have pay Income Tax, it is best you go direct to the tax dept to get actual answers. The foreign workers market is in a mess now about this new policy. It does not sync well with immigration procedures and policies (my personal opinion).

I do not understand the 14 days criteria, why not 7, 21, 30 days?
