Corporate Tax Compliance Services

The Self Assessment System (“SAS”) of taxation in Malaysia has created challenges for companies in the area of tax compliance.

Under SAS, the burden of responsibility has shifted from Inland Revenue Board (“IRB”) to the taxpayers.

This responsibility brings with it

  • The increased risk of tax penalties;

  • The need to estimate the taxable position of companies in advance, the need to monitor the tax position during the financial year with the view to making the appropriate revisions to avoid penalties for underestimation; and

  • The need to ascertain whether the accounting systems within companies are able to meet the higher demands of the SAS.

The onus is on the company to compute its tax liability correctly and pay the correct amount of tax on time. In this respect, the company has to keep abreast of tax developments.

The growing number of tax rules and stringent enforcement by tax authorities, require tax compliance matters that need to be monitored and managed on day – to – day basis. Through years of experience in tax compliance services, we are able to assist clients and offer tax compliance advices as and when needed

How we add value:

  • Preparation and filing of corporate tax estimates & tax return

  • Review of past tax returns for the purposes of determining compliance risks 

  • Advice on tax compliance matters

  • Capital allowances / Industrial building allowance study and review

  • Tax audit/investigation support including submission of appeal against notices of additional assessment issued by the Inland Revenue Board

  • Applications for tax refunds and tax instalment schemes

  • Liaison with authorities on tax issues

  • Tax ruling applications

  • Application of refund of withholding tax

  • Other areas of tax compliance services

Tranfer Pricing

Transfer pricing (TP) is the setting of transfer prices for transactions entered into between associated persons. Externally, the key challenge is to set up the arm’s length transfer prices and to defend them against challenges by the authorities. Internally within a group, the challenge is to manage the transfer pricing risks associated with tax planning and tax compliance matters.

With constantly changing tax legislation, the need for specialist tax advice has never been greater. Given the current situation where the tax authorities have provided the basic framework to implement transfer pricing in the country, taxpayers have no valid grounds for ignoring their responsibilities to comply with the transfer pricing regime.

  • We assist clients in addressing their transfer pricing concerns and meet the IRB’s expectations
