Tax rate for expats

I will be moving to Malaysia in Sept end and will be starting on work from oct 1st. When will I be considered as tax resident? 182 days on consecutive days means it will be sometime in May 2020 and will I be able to get the rebate in July?

Your situation seems to fit in the Example 8 in the following.

You'd have about 124 days cumulated in 2019 and would surpass 182 days about 58 days later ([at] beginning of March). According to the above you would have the two periods linked and be eligible for the tax resident rate for 2019.

Thanks a lot for the link. It has too many details.

Yes, that is why I gave the specific example that your situation falls under (Example #8). Admittedly the document is for all sorts of people under different circumstances. But the document explains the policy.
