What is Intangible assets?

It is an asset which is identifiable, non-monetary without physical substance.

2. Acquired as part of a business combination

 Measured at fair value at the acquisition date

Measurement after Recognition

Cost model

Undue costs or effort means the costs and benefits from obtaining or determining the information necessary to comply with a requirement

Property, plant and equipment (PPE)

  • For use in production or supply of goods or services

  • For administrative purposes

  • It is expected to be used during more than one period.

Accounting for PPE

1.Cost model

Cost less depreciation less accumulated & impairment losses

2.Revaluation model

View Full Size

Deferment of CP204 Payment 2022

The Postponement of Estimated Tax Payable (CP204) and Instalment Payment Scheme (CP500) will be given automatically to qualified taxpayers with the status of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs or PMKS) from Jan 1 to June 30, 2022.

6 instalment deferment

The Inland Revenue Board (IRB) informed that qualified taxpayers are based on records or the latest Income Tax Statement Form received by the board.

CP 204 deferment

For CP204 payment, business criteria that qualify for the PMKS status are companies, cooperatives, trust bodies and limited liability partnerships with a paid-up capital of less than RM2.5 million for ordinary shares at the start of the basic period of an assessment year.

In addition, the entity’s gross business income of RM50 million or below for an assessment year.

The postponement of CP204 payment to the taxpayer who fulfils the criteria will be sent via registered email with HASiL (the IRB).

What if taxpayers don’t want the deferment?

Taxpayers want to maintain the current tax instalment scheme.

  • IRB is not required to be notified as qualified taxpayers are allowed to follow the original CP 204 or CP 500.

  • Any tax instalments paid during the deferment period will be treated as payments towards the tax instalments for those respective months and will not be allowed to be carried forward for settlement of tax instalments after the deferment period.

Tax estimation

No changes to existing eligibility to revise tax estimates in the 6th or the 9th month and the special 11th month revision (subject to existing conditions)

CP500 deferment

The IRB informed that the postponement of CP500 payment is allowed automatically to all taxpayers concerned for the 2021 assessment year payment (for the payable date of Jan 1, 2022) and the 2022 assessment year payment (for the payable dates of March 1, 2022 and May 1, 2022).

Foreign source income taxable in Malaysia 2022

THE government has made a surprising U-turn on Dec 30, 2021 after announcing that foreign-sourced income received in Malaysia by Malaysian tax residents will be taxed.

Current Ruling

The following foreign-sourced income received will continue to be exempted from Malaysian income tax from 1 January 2022 to 31 December 2026 (5 years)

  • Dividend income received by resident companies and limited liability partnerships will be exempted to 2026.

  • All classes of income received by resident individuals will be exempted by 2026.

Why Partnership not Exempted?

Resident partnerships which carry on business will not be exempted. But partnerships as a general rule are not taxed. It is the individual partners who are taxed.

Final Words

Let’s wait for IRB further clarification on partnership matter

Impairment of assets due to floodings

Impairment of assets due to floodings
View Full Size

Impairment of assets due to floodings

Overview of Impairment-Assets Accounting

An asset impairment arises when there is a sudden drop in the fair value of an asset below its recorded cost. The accounting for asset impairment is to write off the difference between the fair value and the recorded cost.

Flooding continues across Malaysia! Do you know how to account for impairment of assets due to flood?

Here are some tips for you.

Key takeaways:

I. What is an impairment loss

II. What is an impairment test in accounting?

III. How do you treat the impairment of assets in accounting?

IV. How do you record an impairment of an asset?

V. Is an impairment an expense?

VI. Which accounting standard is applicable for impairment of assets?

VII. Indicators of impairment

Summary of learnings:

I. What is impairment loss?

An impaired asset is an asset valued at less than book value or net carrying value. In other words, an impaired asset has a current market value that is less than the value listed on the balance sheet. To account for the loss, the company's balance sheet must be updated to reflect the asset's new diminished value.

Floods can cause damage to the appliances on your premises. including the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system, water heaters or refrigerators. As a result, we can no longer recover any value through the use or sale of damaged assets.

We will need to provide impairment when the recoverable amount of an asset is less than the book value of an asset.

II. What is an impairment test in accounting?

An impairment test is an accounting procedure carried out to find out if an asset is impaired, i.e. whether the economic benefits that the asset embodies have dropped drastically. In general, if the carrying value of an asset exceeds the sum of undiscounted expected cash flows of an asset, the asset is impaired.

III. How do you treat the impairment of assets in accounting?

If the recoverable amount of the asset is more than the carrying amount, then the impairment loss has to be reversed and it has to be treated as income in the books of accounts. The reversal of impairment loss previously recognized for a cash-generating unit has to be allocated first to the assets, then goodwill.

IV. How do you record an impairment of an asset?

The total dollar value of impairment is the difference between the asset's carrying cost and the lower market value of the item. The journal entry to record an impairment is a debit to a loss, or expense, account and a credit to the related asset.

V. Is an impairment an expense?

Impairment is a non-cash expense that is reported under the operating expenses section of the income statement.

VI. Which accounting standard is applicable for impairment of assets?

The core principle in Malaysian Private Entities Reporting Standard (MPERS) – Section 27.5 to 27.9is that an asset must not be carried in the financial statements at more than the highest amount to be recovered through its use or sale. If the carrying amount exceeds the recoverable amount, the asset is described as impaired.

VII. Indicators of impairment

What are the other indicators except for flooding? Such as:-

External factors:

- Market value declines

- Negative changes in technology, markets, economy, or laws

- Increases in market interest rates

- Carrying amounts of assets higher than market value

Internal factors:

- obsolescence or physical damage

- asset is idle, part of a restructuring or held for disposal

- economic performance if an assets worse than expected

Why auditor ask any impairment on inventory

MPERS section 13 Inventories

When performing an inventory audit, some of the most common challenges faced by the auditor include: Damaged inventory whose value must be adjusted to reflect its actual value to the company. ... Errors in shipping and receiving of goods can lead to an incorrect end-of-year cutoff total in inventory records

How should we value inventories?

Generally, inventories are valued at cost!

However, if the net realizable value (NRV) of the inventory is less than the cost, the NRV will usually need to be reported on the balance sheet instead of the cost.

What is the cost?

Cost consists of the cost of purchase, conversion, production overheads, joint products and by-products, and other relevant cost.

What is the net realizable value (NRV)?

Net realizable value (NRV) is defined as the expected selling price minus cost of completion.

In what situation we use NRV?

It requires the valuation of inventories at the lower of its historical cost or market value, but if market value cannot be calculated, then the net realizable value of the inventory should be used.

In practice, these are the scenarios where NRV come to the picture: -

1) Oversupply

2) Obsolescence

3) Price decline

Is interest rate tax-deductible?

Interest expense

The Malaysian Income Tax Act 1967 (“Act”) specifically singles out interest expenses incurred under some circumstances to be deductible. Typically, interest expense arising from borrowing used for general working capital or purchase of fixed assets would qualify for this prescribed deduction.

A key summary of relevant sections under the Income Tax Act on interest expenses in Malaysia

Section 33 (1) the Income Tax Act 1967

Subject to this Act, the adjusted income of a person from a source for the basis period for a year of assessment shall be an amount ascertained by deducting from the gross income of that person from that source for that period all outgoings and expenses wholly and exclusively incurred during that period by that person in the production of gross income from that source.

Section 33 (4) the Income Tax Act 1967

For the purposes of paragraph (1)(a) and subsection (2), where any sum payable for a basis period for a year of assessment is not due to be paid in that period, the sum shall when it is due to be paid be deducted in arriving at the adjusted income of a person for that period.

Section 109 the Income Tax Act 1967

Where any person (in this section referred to as the payer) is liable to pay interest or royalty derived from Malaysia to any other person not known to him to be resident in Malaysia, other than interest or royalty attributable to a business carried on by such other person in Malaysia, he shall upon paying or crediting the interest (other than interest on an approved loan or interest of the kind referred to in paragraph 33, 33A, 33B, 35 or 35A of Part I, Schedule 6) or royalty deduct therefrom tax at the rate applicable to such interest or royalty, and (whether or not that tax is so deducted) shall within one month after paying or crediting the interest or royalty render an account and pay the amount of that tax to the Director General...

Section 140C the Income Tax Act 1967

(1) This section shall apply without prejudice to section 140 or 140A and subject to any rules made under this Act.

(2) In ascertaining the adjusted income of a person from each of his sources consisting of a business for the basis period for a year of assessment, no deduction from the gross income from that source for that period shall be allowed in respect of any interest expense in connection with or on any financial assistance in a controlled transaction granted directly or indirectly to that person which is in excess of the maximum amount of interest as determined under any rules made under this Act.

Section 140A the Income Tax Act 1967

(1) This section shall apply notwithstanding section 140 and subject to any rules prescribed under this Act.

(2) Subject to subsection (3), where a person in the basis period for a year of assessment enters into a transaction with an associated person for that year for the acquisition or supply of property or services, then, for all purposes of this Act, that person shall determine and apply the arm’s length price for such acquisition or supply.

Section 33(2) the Income Tax Act 1967

Where a person, being a person to whom paragraph (1)(a) applies in relation to gross income from a business of his for the basis period for a year of assessment and in relation to borrowed money, has made (otherwise than for the purpose of producing that gross income)any loan of money or any investment in movable or immovable property, and the loan or any part thereof is outstanding at any time in that period or the investment or any part thereof is held by him at any time in that period and it appears to the Director General that the loan or any part thereof or the investment or any part thereof has been financed wholly or partly or directly or indirectly out of the borrowed

Is rental income a business income?

Tax Case - BCSB v. DIRECTOR GENERAL OF INCOME TAX

Income is received from the letting of the properties. Taxpayer declared and taxed under section 4(a) ITA 1967 as a business income from YA 2001 to 2011.

Tax audit finding

Income received from letting the properties from YA 2011 is to be taxed under section 4(d) of the ITA as rental income pursuant to Public Ruling No. 4/2011.

Tax audit action

1. Withdrew Capital Allowance for the properties

2. Capital Allowance for the properties

3. Added back the same in the tax computation for YA 2011.

4. Raised the Notices of Additional Assessment for YA 2010 and 2011.

The Company’s opinion

1. The rental income is the business income under section 4(a) of the ITA since its commencement in 2001.

2. The Public Ruling No 4/2011 has no force of law.

IRB argument

1. The Company had failed to provide comprehensive & active maintenance to the properties.

2. The Company only provided maintenance upon request by the tenants.

3. Public Ruling 4/2011 offers guidelines for the tax treatment of the rental income.

4. The Company is disallowed to claim the administration expenses and capital allowance for this non-business income.

5. The interest expenditure for the term loan and bank overdraft claimed by the Company are also not permitted.

6. Section 4 does not determine whether an income falls under subsection (a),(b),(c), (d),(e) or (f).

7. Therefore, the DGIR is authorized under s.138A of the ITA to issue a public ruling.

Decision

The Special Commissioners of Income Tax'' (SCIT) agreed with the IRB submission and totally dismissed the Company appeal.

The assessment and penalty imposed by the IRB for YA 2010 and 2011 are confirmed and maintained.
