RM36 million GST being resolved

SHAH ALAM, JUL 28: The State Government is in the process to resolve the outstanding Goods and Service Tax (GST) claims by all 12 local authorities.
Dato’ Menteri Besar, Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali said, Selangor Treasury has been asked to contact all local authorities to ensure their claims are made according to the Malaysian Customs’ process.
“If we look at the explanation given by the Customs Director-General, there are several documents that need to be submitted. We have asked Selangor State Treasury to take the necessary action and this matter is in the process,” he said.
He was met soon after the 2016 Selangor Foundation Education Excellence Award Ceremony last night.
Last July 26, Customs Director-General, Datuk Seri T Subromaniam claimed that the 12 local authorities in Selangor had sent ‘questionable’ GST statement causing the RM36 million claim payment to be delayed.
Local Government, New Village Development and Illegal Factory Legalisation Exco, Ean Yong Hian Wah is disappointed with the statement and urged Customs to use a more mature approach to resolve the issue.
Klang Municipal Council (MPK) Yang Dipertua (YDP), Dato’ Mohamad Yasid Bidin shares the view, that customs should not use the term ‘questionable’ as the documents we submitted in accordance with the procedure.
Meanwhile, the Subang Jaya Municipal Council YDP, Mohd Zulkarnain Che Ali said he will discuss with Selangor Economic Planning Unit (UPEN) for further action.
Head of Corporate and Public Relations for Shah Alam City Council (MBSA), Shahrin Ahmad said he is in the process of appointing a certified GST consultant to help resolve the claim exceeding RM13 million.
