View Full Size

What is Use of Right Assets in Accounting?

Background

MFRS 117 introduces the treatment of both finance lease and operating lease, but operating lease is treated as an off-balance sheet lease.

MFRS 16 superseded MFRS 117 and introduced the “right to use” approach, which requires lessee to recognize the rights and obligations arising from the lease arrangement in the balance sheet with the effect from 01.01.2019 in order to standardize the treatment for both finance and operating lease.

Definition of Right-of-Use Asset -  MFRS 16

  • Lessee has the rights to control the use of an identified asset for a period of time. [Para 9]

  • Lessee able to obtain all of the economic benefits generated from the use of assets. [Para 9]

  • Lessee able to decide how and for what purpose the asset is used [Para 9]

  • Lessee has the obligation to make payment for the identified asset [Para 9]

  • Risk and reward of the ownership for the asset is still mainly retained with the lessor. [Para 65]

Exemption of MFRS 16 – Para B6

  • Short term lease (Less than 12 months) and contain no purchase option.

  • Lease for asset with a low value when new

Initial measurement:

(i) Cost of the right of use asset should include [Para 24]:

  • Lease liability

  • Prepayment of lease payment – lease incentives

  • Initial direct costs

  • Dismantling costs

(ii) Lease liability [Para 26]:

  • Present value of lease payments

Subsequent measurement:

(i) Right of use assets [Para 30]

  • Cost – accumulated depreciation – accumulated impairment loss

(ii) Lease liability [Para 36]

  • Recognise lease interest and payment

Tax implications:

Lessee:

  • Not entitled to claim the capital allowance on the leased assets [Public Ruling No. 5/2014 - Para 11.3]

  • Depreciation charged is non-tax deductible

  • Interest expenses is tax deductible if fulfilled the condition of Section 33 (1) of Income Tax Act 1967

Common Mistakes in Reinvestment Allowance

Common Mistakes in Reinvestment Allowance
View Full Size

Common Mistakes in Reinvestment Allowance

Reinvestment Allowance is a red flag to IRBM so Reinvestment Allowance is always scrutinized by our IRBM during tax audit/investigation.

What is reinvestment allowance?

Reinvestment allowance (RA), as the name suggests, is an incentive to encourage companies to reinvest and expand their businesses. It is only granted after the company has been in business for a certain period of time, and only to companies resident in Malaysia.

How good is reinvestment allowance?

The allowance is given for 15 years from the first year of claim. The allowance is computed at 60% of QCE incurred and can be utilised against 70% of statutory income

Latest development in reinvestment allowance

Budget 2021 has announced that a special Reinvestment Allowance (RA) will be given for eligible manufacturing and agricultural projects in Years of assessment (YA) 2020 to YA 2022.

This means that eligible companies that have fully utilized their 15-years RA can enjoy additional RA claims for 3 years (YA2020 to YA2022).

Common mistakes in claiming reinvestment allowance

  • The purchase invoice is the only supporting document available. The absence of a project paper, feasibility study, business plans, budgets, directors resolutions, and other relevant documents supporting the project;

  • Mismatch between the company incurring the investments and the company using the plant and machinery;

  • Claim RA on assets incurred for the benefits of related companies/directors.

  • Claim RA on non-qualifying activities.

  • Claim RA on the transfer of assets from related parties who have previously claimed RA on the same assets.

  • The absence of payment records to support the qualified assets.

  • Supporting documents are not kept for at least 7 years.

  • Clain RA concurrently with other tax incentives (like PS, ITA & etc).

  • No written/ pictorial production flow on the qualifying project

What are the criteria for an individual to become a tax resident in Malaysia?

There are 4 criteria for the basis year of assessment to determine an individual’s residency status in Malaysia.

If he falls into any of these criteria, he will be a resident, if not, he will be a non-resident.

Let's start to understand the following 4 criteria:

In Malaysia for ≥ 182 days in a basis year

The number of days does not have to be consecutive.

In Malaysia for ≤ 182 days in basis year

A period of less than 182 days can be linked to another period of 182 consecutive days or more during which he was in Malaysia before or after the current basic year.

In calculating the period, temporary absence is allowed as following: -

1. Attending conference or seminar abroad

2. Ill-heath involving the individual or immediate family member

3. Social visit not more than 14 days

In Malaysia for ≥ 90 days

The number of days does not have to be consecutive. 3 out of 4 years of assessment before/after the current year assessment

  1. He is a resident; OR

  2. He is in Malaysia for 90 days or more

Not in Malaysia or in Malaysia for ≤ 90 days

  1. The individual is resident for 3 consecutive year assessment prior to the current basic year assessment; AND

Avoiding Pitfalls When Claiming Tax Incentives

Avoiding Pitfalls When Claiming Tax Incentives

How one seminar amazed me!

On 30 November 2022, I attend Ms Yong Mei Sim webinar ''Avoiding Pitfalls When Claiming Tax Incentives'' conducted by the Chartered Tax Institute of Malaysia.

When it comes to tax incentives, I thought to myself ''What else can tax incentives changes since I have been doing for more than 20 years? Now what?''

Nevertheless, I am truly surprised to realise there are some insights or changes from MIDA or IRBM relating to tax incentives policy.

The key takeaways from the webinar can be summarised as follow :

1. Intellectual property (IP) income is excluded from tax incentives due to ''compliance'' with the OEDC ruling on preferential tax treatment!

2. The use of tax incentives to attract foreign investment is considered ''harmful tax competition'' under the current global tax environment-BEPS (not K-Pop boy band).

3. Taxpayers are to comply MIDA annual declaration as duly certified by the external auditor on pre-determined operating/capital expenditure and employment, local value add %, preparation of transfer pricing documentation & etc.

4. IRBM shall ''tarik balik''/revoke tax incentive shall those conditions from MIDA are not met.

5. Discuss with MIDA the relaxation of terms and conditions with relevant facts and documentary justification ASAP.

6. With effect from 7 July 2019, a Malaysian company with corporate shareholders is no longer eligible for the Allowance of Increased Export.

7. Trading of agriculture products is not eligible for the Allowance of Increased Export.

8. ''Contract R&D company'' and ''R&D company'' must be approved by MITI under the new Section 4H of the Promotion of Investment Act 1986.

9. Full documentation from the project paper, feasibility study, board resolution, and other documents (engineering report, cost-saving report, financing report & etc) to support the Reinvestment Allowance claim.

Maybe it is a good time to conduct a risk assessment review before IRBM knock on your door for a tax audit.

In short, don't play play with tax incentives.
