Overview

Over and above the fact that the firm is one of a handful of Malaysian law firms that have an established and dedicated tax law practice, we are among the very few tax lawyers in the country to have wide experience in the Courts.  In 2018, we successfully obtained the decision of the Court of Appeal - which we believe is the only judicial precedent on the issue - that severely curtailed the special power of the Inland Revenue to impose tax on a disposer of property where both the acquirer and disposer of property had been late in filing their tax returns. 

Our work includes advising on corporate and individual tax planning, withholding tax, tax holidays/incentives (including applying for incentive packages and negotiating with government authorities), GST, transfer pricing, stamp duty, customs duties and the Labuan International Business and Financial Centre. 

We have built up a substantial network of local financial and foreign tax experts with whom we have a good working relationship which we can draw on, whenever necessary, in order to give clients the best possible advice from all angles.

In summary, our practice is broad-based, and we aim to be proactive, cost-effective, time-effective and thorough in order to protect the interests of our clients at all times.
