To smoothen the strike-off process, the company always clear off the accounts before application of strike off.

So, what is the tax implication if I waive off my directors’ account?

Let’s illustrate with a simple real case:

Scenario

ABC Sdn Bhd is going to strike off due to the company is unsustainable. The directors have injected money as a loan for the company’s operation over the years. But now, due to striking off, the company decided to waive of director’s account.

Struggles

Is the waiver of the director’s account taxable?

Solution:

Generally, yes. the waiver of debts is a taxable income to the company. Why?

Under Section 30(4) of ITA 1967, the waiver of debts is taxable if the debts have either: -

i) taken a tax deduction under Section 33 of the Act; or

ii) claimed a capital allowance under Section 42 and Schedule 3 of the Act.

Unless the taxpayer can prove that they did not claim any of the above two categories.

预付款和应计项目您掌握了多少呢?

相信大家在资产负债表里常看到预付款 (Prepayment) 和应计项目(Accrual), 但是您是否知道这两个账目的意义存在?该怎么在账目上呈现呢?

科普时间到!让我们带大家一同了解这其中的迷思…

1. 顾名思义:

(a) 预付款

在当年度提前付款下一年的费用。

举个例子:一般上,公司的火险是以一年份的方式付费,公司所偿还的火险保障期已包括了下个年份的费用。

(b) 应计项目

每个月或每年公司应还的费用但是还未付款。

举个例子: 公司每个月都需要偿还电费,但是由于电单在下一个月才收到因此无法在当个月付款。此时我们就必须在当个月应记这笔开销。

2. 在年度报表有什么影响?

(a) 预付款

让公司的年度报表更准确,以便管理层能够做出理想的判断与决定。

这项账目是呈现在年度报表中的流动资产 (Current Assets)。

(b) 应计项目

让公司明确的了解每个月或每年开销的数额,以便预先储备足够的现金以及避免不必要花费。

这项账目是呈现在年度报表中的流动负债 (Current Liabilities)。

3. 何时要输入进或出账目?

(a) 预付款

输入账目:在当下付款时就必须把下个月份或年份的费用归类去预付款的账目。

输出账目:当预付款的日期已达到时就必须把此账目输出到费用的账目。

(b) 应计项目

输入账目:每个月尾或年末时必须把应还但未付款的费用输入到应计项目。

输出账目:在付款的那一天就必须把应计项目输出。

4. 复式记帐法

(a) 预付款

输入账目:

Debit 费用

Debit 预付款

Credit 现金

输出账目:

Debit 费用

Credit 预付款

(b) 应计项目

输入账目:

Debit 费用

Credit 应计项目

输出账目:

Debit 应计项目

Credit 现金

5. 例子

(a) 预付款

公司收到保安公司的账单并在1月时已付款。单据中保安费的日期是从01/01/2021 致 28/02/2021总计RM 120。此时公司必须把1月的费用RM 60输入到保安费(Expenses),2月的预付数额RM 60输入到预付款的账目。当2月时才把预付款中的数额输出到保安费。

(b) 应计项目

公司在每个月为都会在月尾之前计算薪水并支付,但由于这个月的现金流动不是很宽裕。因为此,公司想把这笔薪水RM 12,000 在下个月的5号之前才

公司在每个月都会计算薪水RM 12,000并在下一个月的5号之前才将薪水支付给员工。即使公司还未支付,公司还是必须将当个月的薪水RM 12,000输入到应计项目。直到公司将薪水支付给员工时我们才将这笔费用输出。

Weekly E-KTP Newsletter #191: Permanently increase of Indebtedness threshold to RM50,000

Summary

A higher threshold for winding up proceedings against a debtor who inability to pay debts

Full story

Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia (SSM) has permanently raised the indebtedness threshold for companies from RM10,000.00 to RM50,000.00 with effect from 1 April 2020; after introduced a temporary measure from 23 April 2020 to 31 March 2021 under Section 466 of the Companies Act 2016.

This initiative was aimed to reduce the burden and impact on companies facing cash flow problems. This is prevention to companies being winding up and able to continue doing business during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Upon implementation of this initiative, the number of winding-up petitions is expected to reduce and companies will be able to continue doing business without worry. This is supported by the number of petitions submitted to SSM from April to December 2020 recorded at 665 cases as compared to 1,760 cases in the year 2019 and 1,533 cases in the year 2018.

Is the threshold considered an appropriate amount? As elaborate from Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi, the Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs, this amount was considered appropriate from two (2) perspective as below:

1. not too low in forcing companies to wind up due to small amounts of debt, and

2. not too high which could burden smaller creditors for not being able to take action against companies in debt.

Hence, SSM hopes that the implementation of this initiative will help and support the corporate sector during the economic recovery period, especially for companies affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
