Real Estate Industry Taxation Workshop – Module 1

25 May 2017

A public ruling was issued in 2009 (amended in 2016) to shed light on the position adopted by the Inland Revenue Board in dealing with taxation of property developers.

Despite so, it remains to be seen whether the effort taken by the authorities is sufficient to keep abreast of an industry as vibrant as property development.

As such, Deloitte Malaysia was proud to hold the first part of the three-module Real Estate Industry Taxation Workshop, covering income tax vs. real property gains tax, tax treatment for rental income, tax implication on reclassification of land or property, real property company shares, tax treatment for compulsory acquisition and common tax issues faced in the real estate industry.

Speakers for our Module 1 workshop included Tham Lih Jiun, Real Estate Tax Leader; Andrew Gnoh Chee Kheong, Tax Group Leader; Gan Sin Reei, Senior Business Tax Manager and Chea Chan Yang, Assistant Tax Manager.

  • Technical versus non-technical services
  • The emphasis on the second limb of Section 4A – “in connection with”
  • Interaction between domestic tax law and tax treaties?
  • Upholding the spirit of tax treaty and Vienna Convention on Law of Treaties
  • Analysis on latest case law – Alam Maritim,, etc.

The two sessions, featuring our International Tax Partner, Tan Hooi Beng, were a success with more than 200 participants in attendance.
