Khairy claims Putrajaya didn’t need Petronas money for GST refund

Author:   |    Publish date:


SUBANG JAYA, March 12 — The Pakatan Harapan federal government might not have needed to use the RM30 billion special dividend from national oil company Petronas to repay the RM27 billion in outstanding tax owed, Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin suggested today.

The Umno lawmaker questioned the necessity to fully settle the refunds, which include yet to be verified claims for the unpopular Goods and Services Tax (GST) amounting to RM19 billion that the previous Barisan Nasional (BN) government introduced in April 2015.

Khairy, who holds the Shadow Finance Ministry portfolio, said the verification of the Petronas GST refunds is currently being scrutinised by the Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee (PAC), which he said may be tabled by the committee next week.

“The outstanding GST refunds is still being discussed by the PAC and it may be tabled in a week or so we will get the report from PAC on it,” he told reporters after speaking at the Malaysian Strategic Financial Outlook Forum here

“This year, the special RM30 billion Petronas dividend is requested for tax refunds. If the refunds is not yet verified, then there is a problem there.

“They have taken money from Petronas which you didn't need to take yet or at all. That is what the PAC is trying to ascertain,” he added.
