(update) Special Voluntary Disclosure Programme 2.0 - Postponed

Introduction

With SVDP2.0 expected to commence from 1 June 2023, IRB issued the detailed guidelines and mechanism on 31/5/2023.

But ...

IRB has on their website, and RMC Department on their official social media site, announced that the SVDP 2.0 is now postponed to a date which is to be determined.

My thought on SVDP 2.0 to taxpayers:

1. Understand the Program Guidelines

Thoroughly familiarize yourself with the specific guidelines and requirements of the SVDP you are considering. Each program may have different eligibility criteria, disclosure formats, deadlines, and potential benefits.

Being well-informed will help you make informed decisions and avoid any misunderstandings.

2. Assess Potential Risks and Benefits:

Before proceeding with a voluntary disclosure, carefully evaluate the potential risks and benefits involved. Understand the extent of the relief or benefits offered by the program and weigh them against the risks of potential penalties, interest, or other consequences if the disclosure is not accepted.

Professional advice can help you assess this effectively.

3. Gather Accurate and Complete Information

When preparing your voluntary disclosure, ensure that you provide accurate and comprehensive information. Incomplete or misleading disclosures may be rejected, leading to further complications.

It is crucial to gather all relevant documentation and financial records to support your disclosure.

4. Seek Professional Advice

Engaging a qualified tax professional, such as a tax consultant or lawyer, is highly recommended when participating in an SVDP. They can provide expert guidance, help you understand the implications of the program, assist in preparing the disclosure, and advocate on your behalf during discussions with tax authorities.

5. Comply with Program Deadlines

SVDPs have specific deadlines for making disclosures. Adhere to these deadlines to ensure your disclosure is considered and processed in a timely manner.

Any amount of tax payable must be paid in full by the prescribed due date upon any disclosure. In other words, taxpayers should avoid making declarations at the very last minute.

How can I reduce my share capital in Malaysia?

How can I reduce my share capital in Malaysia?
View Full Size

How can I reduce my share capital in Malaysia?

What does it mean?

A capital reduction is when a company reduces its share capital to a certain amount of its share capital by making payments to its shareholder out of its capital equal to the amount that the shareholder invested in the company, or it could be by a share buyback.

Why would a company want to reduce share capital?

So, before a company’s director decides to reduce the company's share capital, we need to study why we need to do that: -

It could be: -

1) to create distributable reserves to pay a dividend; or

2) to buy back or redeem its own shares; or

3) to reduce or eliminate losses; or

4) to return surplus capital to shareholders;

5) to change in capital structure; etc

How to proceed with the reduction of share capital?

There are 2 ways you could proceed to share capital reduction.

1) By way of Court Confirmation Procedure (Section116, CA 2016).

2) By way of solvency statement procedure (Section 117, CA 2016).

Why do people choose Solvency Statement Procedure?

1) it is faster

2) it incurs less cost

3) it is more simplified and less tedious

Who could assist you with Solvency Statement Procedure?

  1. Accountant for Solvency Statement preparation and

  2. Company Secretary

Reduction of Share Capital via Solvency Statement Procedure for Sdn. Bhd.

Under Section 115 (b), CA 2016, unless otherwise provided in the constitution, a company may reduce its share capital by a special resolution supported by a solvency statement in accordance with Section 117.

A) Solvency statement

1. All directors have to make a solvency statement in relation to the reduction of share capital within 14 days before the end of the date of a special resolution passed by members of a company to approve the reduction of share capital.

(Solvency statement is not required if the reduction is mainly for the purpose of cancellation of any loss of paid-up capital or unrepresented by available assets.)

2. Special resolution passed by way of written resolution must be accompanied by the solvency statement, or if passed at a general meeting, the solvency statement must be made available for inspection throughout the meeting.

3. The solvency statement must be available for the creditor’s inspection for six weeks at the company’s registered office.

B) Within 7 days after the resolution is passed, the company must send a notice to IRB and the Registrar stating that the resolution has been passed together with the solvency statement. And within the same period, the company must advertise a notice of the reduction of the share capital in one widely circulated in Malaysia in the national language and one widely circulated newspaper in Malaysia in English under Section 117(10).

The company’s creditor will have six weeks from the date of the resolution to give a notice of application from the court to the Registrar to cancel the resolution.

If there is no application for cancellation from the creditors after 6 weeks, the company must lodge the following documents with the Registrar within 2 weeks after the period of 6 weeks under Section 119(1)

a) a copy of the resolution;

b) a copy of the solvency statement, if applicable;

c) a statement made by the directors under Section 117(1) and Section 117(3).

d) a copy of the newspaper advertisement.

C) The capital reduction will take effect once the Registrar has recorded the information lodged to them.

New Proposed Audit Exemption for Sdn Bhd Malaysia

Audit Exemption - A higher threshold in qualifying criteria for exemption from audit

Background

This article relates to the qualifying criteria for the Audit Exemption (AE) that we published on 8 February 2022.

Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia (SSM) issued a Consultative Document on the Proposed Review of AE Criteria for Private Companies in Malaysia on 2 February 2023 with the purpose to seek public response and feedback upon the proposal of new thresholds for the following categories:

1. Zero-Revenue Companies

• Turnover: No changes as remain at RM0

• Total Assets: Increase from RM300,000 to RM500,000 for the current financial year and the immediate past 2 financial years.

2. Threshold-Qualified Companies

• Turnover: Increase annual revenue from RM100,000 to RM1,000,000 during the current financial year and the immediate past 2 financial years.

• Total Assets: Increase from RM300,000 to RM1,000,000 for the current financial year and the immediate past 2 financial years.

• Employees: Increase from not more than 5 to not more than 30 employees at the end of its current financial year and immediate past 2 financial years.

SSM remains the same threshold for Dormant Companies category.

SSM Findings

From the Consultative Document (CD), SSM considered the following in formulating the above proposal:

1. SSM analysis on data available as at 30 November 2022

From Table 2 and Table 3 of the CD, the statistics reflected the overall percentage of AE submissions at a very low rate since the introduction in the year 2017.

Financial Year Ended (Rate)

2020 6%

2019 7%

2018 4%

SSM Explanation

Tag along in the analysis rate, SSM also listed 4 possible reasons for the low rate summaries as below :

a. awareness on the eligibility for AE;

b. procedure imposed by related bodies (such as licensing and regulatory authorities, banks) which require audited Financial Statement;

c. Company Directors' option to submit the audited Financial Statement; and

d. Other factors - limitation of data on the number of employees cause the requirement to submit the audited Financial Statement.

2. Findings of a survey

The Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA) conducted a survey in the year 2021 on “The Impact of Audit Exemption on Small Companies and Audits Firms.

MIA reported their findings summaries as below:

a. reasons to option for AE or not; and

b. the majority of respondents agreed to increase the threshold.

3. SSM comparative study in other 3 jurisdictions (United Kingdom, Australia and Singapore) on the trend of AE.

This guideline is useful to the public (especially Company Directors) who felt upset by SSM's decision to strike off their company under Section 549.

SSM Power To Strike Off

This section gives SSM the legal power to strike a company off in the registrar where the company:

(a) is not carrying on business or operation;

(b) has contravened any of this act;

(c ) is being used for unlawful purposes; and

(d) is being wound up.

This reinstatement is applicable within 7 years after the name has been struck off by SSM.

How does it work?

Application process according to

1) Order 88 rule 2 of the Rules of Court 2012; and

2) Section 555 of CA, 2016.

The proceeding shall be commenced by the applicant (ie Plaintiff) to file in court an originating summons (“Originating Summons”).

The Originating Summons needs to be supported by an Affidavit in Support (“Affidavit”) setting out the grounds and evidence in support of the application.

General Guidelines

The Guidelines about the application for reinstatement under Section 555 of CA 2016 are summarised below: -

1. The Defendant: SSM is to be named as the defendant in the application;

2. Contents of the Affidavit:

The Affidavit must include the following: -

a) Info on the directors of the Company;

b) Info on the shareholders;

c) Consent letter from the other directors;

d) Address of the registered office;

e) Ground of the application; and

f) Other necessary and relevant facts (for example Annual Return and Financial Statement to prove that the company is in existence and operation or bank transaction reflected in the bank statement or there is the existence of ownership of assets).

The orders sought from the Court must include:

a) The Plaintiff lodges the overdue statutory documents not submitted previously such as Financial Statements, Annual Return and other related documents if any;

b) The cost of the proceedings of RM2,000 be paid by the plaintiff within 30 days of the order made;

c) An order that the cost of the application is borne by the plaintiff.

As the result, SSM may oppose an application that does not fulfill the requirements and the court ultimately has the discretion of whether or not to allow an application for reinstatement under Section 555 of CA 2016 to have proceeded.

延长国家教育储蓄计划 (SSPN) 的个人所得税减免

延长国家教育储蓄计划 (SSPN) 的个人所得税减免
View Full Size

延长国家教育储蓄计划 (SSPN) 的个人所得税减免

这项延长措施将导致政府一年减少约 2亿5000万令吉的收入. 一个人在评估年度内为其孩子存入 SSPN 可获得最高 RM8,000 的所得税减免 (因当年的任何提款而减少).

原定于 2020 年到期 的减免已延长至 2022 年

什么是SSPN?

• 它是一个国名教育储蓄计划

• 为了鼓励父母们培养良好的储蓄习惯,提早为孩子准备教育基金

SSPN 是国家高等教育储蓄机构 (PTPTN) 推出的储蓄计划. PTPTN 是根据 1997 年国家高等教育管机构法 [第 566 号法案] 成立的.

SSPN 的推出是为了让父母能够储蓄并最终资助他们的孩子在高等教育机构的教育。 为了鼓励个人向 SSPN 账户存款,引入了 ITA 第 46(1)(k) 段,允许对向该计划存款的个人进行扣除.

从 2012 年至 2018 年课税年起,允许扣除的金额是相关年度的净捐款,上限为 6,000 令吉。从 2019 课税年起,净捐款的最高扣除额增加至 8,000 令吉.

净贡献是一年中的存款数额减去当年的任何提款数额。

SSPN 账户可以由父母为 18 岁及以下的孩子开立,并维持该账户直到孩子年满 29 岁.

父母在孩子年满 29 岁之前存入此账户的存款可作为扣除额。

对于 18 岁及以上的儿童,他们可以选择以自己的名义或以父母的名义开立账户。 如果账户是以孩子的名义开立的,则该孩子没有资格从账户中的存款中扣除,因为根据 ITA 第 46(1)(k) 段的扣除仅适用于作为父母的存款人或 监护人。 父母也没有资格扣除,因为他们不是以孩子的名义开设账户的存款人。

SSPN-I & SSPN-I Plus的分别

SSPN-I 就是现在所谓的SSPN Prime

• 纯储蓄的存款计划

• 存款者无需每个月固定存款

SSPN-I & SSPN-I Plus的分别

SSPN-I Plus就是现在所谓的SSPN Plus

• 它类似是储蓄保险配套, 可享有人寿保险,36种疾病医药保障,住院补贴等等。

SSPN可以扣税吗?

• SSPN-I 税务减免高达RM8,000

• SSPN-I PLUS 则分成两个部分

(i) 净存款 – 税务减免高达RM8,000

(ii) 人寿保险 – 税务减免高达RM3,000
