The upcoming MIA Malaysian Tax Conference 2019 will discuss the government’s ongoing tax reform agenda, as guided by the Tax Reform Committee established in October 2018. The ultimate goal is to build a more business-friendly, simplified and competitive tax ecosystem.
The essence of tax reform is undertaking a holistic review of the national tax system – assisting to broaden the tax base and reduce the crippling national debt, while supporting economic growth and social well-being.
During the Conference, leading tax experts, including members of the Tax Reform Committee, will share insights into developments in direct and indirect taxes, transfer pricing and BEPS, governance and collaborative regulations, standards, dispute resolutions and taxpayer rights and the Client Charter.
- Delegates can expect to hear from tax experts on the following:
- Reforming and enhancing the Malaysian tax system and the business environment through the strategic use of Direct Tax and Indirect Tax
- How tax regulators are engaging with taxpayers to improve compliance and build a business-friendly tax environment through Co-operative Compliance.
- Aligning tax, accounting and financial reporting standards to simplify the tax system for the benefit of all stakeholders, following in the footsteps of other jurisdictions that have achieved full or partial alignment.
- How to better manage the dispute and resolution process, while also navigating issues arising from the appeals and court appeals processes.
- Discussion and review of recent tax cases.
- Updates on transfer pricing, which is becoming increasingly complex.
The MIA Malaysian Tax Conference is scheduled for 3 & 4 April 2019 at the KLCC Convention Centre, carries 16 CPE hours and is HRDF claimable.
