Tax Audit and Investigation Workshop Series

Chapter 3: Preparing your Capital Statement - Vulnerabilities for the IRBM’s picking

31 May 2018 | Meetpoint 1 & 2, Level 15, Menara LGB

With the onset of the Common Reporting Standard, the Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia (“IRBM”) is expected to increase its scrutiny on company directors, shareholders and business owners.

It is hence important to consider whether your net worth and lifestyle match your reported income. If the IRBM asks that you prepare your capital statement today, can you withstand the scrutiny?

Join us for an intensive half-day complimentary workshop that is designed to give you an understanding of what a robust capital statement should look like in the event you are selected for a tax investigation by the IRBM.
