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.

Can I reuse a company name after strike off from SSM?

On 30 January 2023, Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia (SSM) issued a guideline related to the application to Court to reinstate the name of the company under Section 555(1) of Companies Act (CA), 2016.

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

Tax Budget 2023 - Others

Prime Minister and Finance Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim have proposed some changes to the income tax rates under the new Budget 2023.

Key summary on tax budget 2023 for Others

Capital Gain Tax

The proposal to introduce a capital gains tax (CGT) on the disposal of unlisted shares has been welcomed as a move in the right direction by economists but a tax expert has cautioned a more in-depth study is needed.

The proposal is a sign the government is kickstarting its move to impose taxes on more capital items in the future.

Tricor Malaysia chairman Veerinderjeet Singh opines the government would have in theory three mechanism options for CGT implementation.

“Either a new legislation on CGT will be introduced, or the existing legislation on real property gains tax (RPGT) will be amended to include the sale of shares of unlisted companies, or it will be added within the Income Tax Act by defining it to include certain capital gains, which can be reported annually.”

Luxury Goods Tax

A luxury tax is a tax imposed on goods that are considered expensive, unnecessary and unimportant. Such items include cars, private jets, yachts and jewellery.

Retabling the budget in the Dewan Rakyat last week, Anwar who also holds the finance portfolio said that the government had no plans to reintroduce the goods and services tax (GST).

In Norway, cars and chocolate alike are considered a luxury and subject to a luxury tax. 

Let’s see how the government come out with detailed implementation in the coming months.

Special Voluntary Disclosure Program (SVDP)

The IRB and RMCD will implement the SVDP again. Under the SVDP, a 100% penalty remission will be granted with effect from 1 June 2023 to 31 May 2024.

Advantages of LLP company:

a) Limited Liability. Under LLP, the partners are only liable for the amount invested in the company (capital) if the company suffers a loss.

Can my Sdn Bhd appoint more than one (1) company secretary ?

Can my Sdn Bhd appoint more than one (1) company secretary ?

Recently we encountered a question raised by Company Director asking whether Sdn Bhd can appoint more than 1 secretary for the company.

Section 235(1) of the Companies Act (CA) 2016 states that a company shall have at least 1 secretary. This means there is no prohibition to appoint more than 1 person to act as secretary for the company.

CA only prohibition this person to act in dual capital (ie as secretary and at the same time as a director) under Section 242 of CA2016 to avoid authorisation by the same person.

Additionally, the company cannot simply appoint anyone to act as the secretary.

There are requirements to be fulfilled before the appointment and the requirements are listed below:

I) Basic

a) a natural person;

b) age 18 years old and above; and

c) citizen or permanent resident of Malaysia who resident and having a principal address of residence in Malaysia

II) Qualification/ Professional requirement

a) a member of a body listed in the Fourth Schedule of CA2016; or

b) a person licensed under Section 20G of the Companies Commission of Malaysia Act 2001.

Who is responsible to appoint a company secretary?

Company Directors may not have a full understanding of the technical knowledge in compliance according to the act. Hence, he requires the assistance of a qualified person to attend to compliance matters.

Therefore, the secretary holds an official role in the company and is also an officer under Section 2 of the CA 2016.

This means the secretary is binding to the company. He/ she is required to play his/ her role as administrator to maintain the registered record with the Registrar of Company according to the act.

When to appoint a company secretary?

Within 30 days from the date of incorporation with written consent from the Company Secretary as stated in Section 236(2)&(3) of CA2016.

The appointment of a subsequent company secretary is made by the Board of Directors depending on the terms and conditions of such appointment.

Generally, Sdn Bhd may choose to have more than 1 company secretary.
