Revised MSPO Incentives

With the mandatory deadline for MSPO implementation being 31 December 2019, the Government has announced to extend the deadline for MSPO incentives application from 30 June 2019 to 31 December 2019. This extension is for organised smallholders, small and medium estates, plantations and processing facilities.

 

The Government has also agreed to increase the quantum of MSPO incentives for small and medium estates (size from 40.46 ha to 1,000 ha) from 70% to 100% of total auditing fees.

 

MSPO incentives for organised smallholders will now be increased from RM10 per hectare to RM55 per hectare. 

 

In addition to this, small and medium estates will also be eligible to apply for 50% reimbursement of preparation costs (up to a maximum of RM10,000) incurred during the preparation phase of MSPO certification.

 

These new MSPO incentives will further reduce the financial burden for organised smallholders and small and medium estates to prepare for the initial MSPO audits. Eligible applicants are entitled to reimbursement of the MSPO incentives after being awarded the MSPO certificate.
