After the introduction of Goods and Sales Tax (GST) on 01 April 2015, there has been various implementation issues, many unanswered questions and uncertainty faced by both businesses and individuals alike when calculating and lodging their GST returns.
Kastams Malaysia and various training institutions have conducted wide ranging GST awareness programs as well as demonstrating the impact on the businesses.
Despite that there are still many companies and business owners who still uncertain whether they have lodged the right GST numbers.
With these concerns in mind a Two Day Program has been developed to ensure that there are sufficient processes to Audit and Review the GST numbers.
Unlike external Financial Audit requirements where it is performed annually, GST reports are submitted monthly or quarterly, therefore we need a process which detects GST non- compliance throughout the year. Inevitably there is a link between GST and Income Tax.
