TITLE: CESSATION OF CASH AND CHEQUE PAYMENTS TO MIA

DATE: 15/10/2021

Dear valued members

CESSATION OF CASH AND CHEQUE PAYMENTS TO MIA

In line with Bank Negara Malaysia’s Financial Sector Blueprint for a cashless society, which is aligned with Malaysia’s Digital Economy Blueprint, the Institute will cease to accept payments through cash or cheque beginning January 2022.

The Institute wishes to remind members that you can make payments to the Institute through our existing electronic payment channels as follows:

  1. Online payment through the MIA member website: www.mia.org.my that allows immediate update of your payment and submission of your e-receipt. This is the preferred channel. The gateway provides many options of payment mode i.e. FPX, Credit and Debit cards and other e-wallets.
  2. Auto debit feature in “my payment” for members to subscribe for payment of their annual subscriptions/PC fee.
  3. Payment through electronic fund transfer (EFT)
    • Please indicate the membership number/ invoice number in the EFT payment and email the remittance advice (download here) to us to update your payment manually in the system for the e-receipt to be submitted to you.

The use of electronic payments saves time, eliminates the risks associated with handling cash and enhances the efficiency of the processing and tracking of transactions.

For any queries on payment, please contact our Finance personnel as follows:

Marissa (ext. 149) / Nurul Hanis (ext. 152) / Cinthu (ext. 126) / Hanuna (ext. 120) or e-mail to finance@mia.org.my.

Yours faithfully
MALAYSIAN INSTITUTE OF ACCOUNTANTS
