Quiz of the day - Keyman Insurance Tax Deductible Malaysia

1. Issue

KTP Tax Consultant Sdn Bhd can claim a tax deduction on Mr. Koh Teck Peng personal insurance in KTP Tax Consultants Sdn Bhd?

What is the personal tax impact on Mr. Koh Teck Peng?

In my opinion, the personal insurance paid by the Company for Mr. Koh is not tax allowable as Mr. Koh is control director of KTP Tax Consultants Sdn Bhd.

However, Mr. Koh has to declare the total amount of premium paid in his personal income tax which is taxed under paragraph 4(b) of the ITA

2. Fact

Company Tax impact

There are a number of requirements that must be met in order to claim a tax deduction.

According to Income Tax Act 1967 Section 33(1), expenses only can be deductible if it wholly and exclusively incurred in the generate of income is allowable as a tax deduction.

Refer to Paragraph 4 of Public Ruling No.2/2003 – Key Man Insurance, if the insurance meets the following two requirements, the premium payable on a term life policy or an accident policy which is no return after expiration policy is allowable as a deduction against gross income from a business:-

• The insurance has no element of investment

• beneficial of the insurance must remain with the employer or company not the “key-person” or his family

However, a whole life policy and endowment policy is deemed to have element of investment due to both of these policies have cash value that are redeemable.

Therefore, these two policies would be regarded as a capital asset of a Company and thus the premium paid on these policies would not be allowed for tax deduction under paragraph 5.

Connected person

Addition, if the premium paid for director insurance on life of that person who owns share in the company is not allow to claim tax deduction in controlled company. It is also not permitted to deduct the premium for a ''key-man'' insurance coverage on the life of a business partner or sole proprietor under paragraph 7.

Personal Tax Impact

Refer to paragraph 6.8 Insurance premiums - Public Ruling No.5/2019 – Perquisites From Employment

The amount of the annual premium paid by the Company on behalf of the employee (including his family, his nominee) is a perquisite to the employee and shall reported in employee Form EA.

By reporting in the Form EA in employee, this would results in the amount of annual insurance premium become taxable income for the employee.

DIRECTOR GENERAL OF INLAND REVENUE vs KAYUSAR SDN BHD

Lesson from Tax Case:

Director General of Inland Revenue (DGIR) had the authority to charge the gain from disposal based on the market value if the taxpayer selling the property at equal to the purchase price to a connected person.

Background information

Kayusar Sdn Bhd is a reputable timber company.

The Company entered into a sale and purchase agreement by selling a condominium unit at RM398,000.00 which was equal to the purchase price.

Tax Issue:

Does transfer of ownership of property between connected persons stated under Para 23 Schedule 2 RPGTA required to be arm’s length price?

IRB opinion:

a) Section 25(2) of RPGT Act 1976 empowers DGIR to disregard and/or vary the transaction as the transaction has a direct effect on the chargeability of the tax.

b) DGIR charged the gain from the disposal of the condominium to the RPGT based on the market value determined by the Jabatan Penilaian dan Perkhidmatan Harta (JPPH).

The decision by The Court of Appeal

a) The Court of Appeal consistently found the Special Commission of Income Tax (SCIT) and High Court did not commit any error of law in their decision.

b) The responsibility was on the Company to prove that the market value determined by JPPH was inaccurate. However, the Company has failed to prove it.

c) The Company failed to discharge its obligation under its own name on 15 May 2014.

Therefore, the Company appeal is terminated with cost.

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

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
