Marami na sa ating mgakababaihan ngayon na nagiging Work at Home Mom (WAHM). Ang mga WAHM kadalasan ay nagsisimula ng maliit na negosyo mula sa kanilang tahanan. Ito ay ayon sa kanilang kakahayan, interes o kaya naman ay hobby. Kung hilig mo ang magluto, mag-bake, gumawa ng mga kakanin o pagkaing meryenda, maaari mo itong simulan sa iyong tahanan at kailangan lamang ng maliit na puhunan at ialok sa mga kapit bahay, kaibigan at kamag-anak. Maaari ka rin namang mag tayo ng isang sari-sari store, maliit na karinderya, mag-direct selling, o kaya naman ay online shop.

Narito pa ang ibang interes na pwde mo pang pagkakitaan na pwede mong gawin kahit ikaw ay nasa bahay lamang tulad ng pang-gagantsilyo, paggawa ng Christmas decoration, paggawa ng bag o pitaka. Maari ka rin mag offer ng services gaya ng manicure at pedicure, pag-gupit ng buhok, manahi, magtinda ng pre-loved o mga gamit sa bahay na hindi na kailangan ngunit pwede pang pakinabangan ng iba.

Alamin ang iyong kakayahan o bagay na may interes sa iyo na pwede mong pagkakitaan habang ikaw ay nasa bahay at maaalagaan mo pa ang iyong mga anak.

Ang tax rate ng isang OFW o Non-resident sa Malaysia:

1. Kapag ikaw ay nag-stay sa Malaysia ng less than 60 days, any income, fees, commission o bonus na matatanggap ay walang buwis.

2. If during your period of employment, nag-stay ka less than 182 days in a year, ikaw ay isang non-resident. Bilang isang non-resident, ikaw ay may tax flat rate na 25% at hindi mo ma-eenjoy ang insentibo sa buwis. UPDATE: Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia had increased the tax to 28% with effect from Year Assessment 2016
