It's Almighty! Taxed RM183 Million December 6, 2019 (Kuala Lumpur, 6th) Magnum (magnum, 3859, motherboard consumer stocks) has once again become the dead soul of the inland tax bureau's tax recovery!
Magnum filed with the exchange, and the Revenue Authority stated that Multi-Purpose International (MPIL), Magnum's wholly-owned subsidiary in Labuan, owed a total of 182.8 million 467.46 ringgit in taxes from 2014 to 2018.
In May 2017, Magnum's subsidiary, Magnum Holdings Pte Ltd, was fined by the Revenue Department for a total of RM47.47 million in fines and taxes.
On 29 November 2019, Multi-Purpose International Limited ("MPIL"), a Labuan company which is wholly owned by Magnum Berhad (and which was set up pursuant to the Selective Capital Reduction ("SCR") exercise by Magnum Corporation Berhad), had received via e-mail notices of assessment for income tax dated 29 November 2019 for the years of assessment 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2018 amounting to RM40,361,327.82, RM40,378,374.75, RM38,755,291.78 and RM24,555,383.55 respectively. On 2 December 2019, MPIL received via e-mail the notice of assessment dated 29 November 2019 for the year of assessment 2016 amounting to RM38,754,296.16.
The Inland Revenue Board ("IRB") now claims that MPIL should be taxed under the Income Tax Act 1967 instead of the Labuan Business Activity Tax Act 1990. Since its establishment, MPIL’s income including its interest income had been duly assessed under the Labuan Business Activity Tax Act 1990, a position which the IRB had never questioned in the past. Upon consulting its tax solicitors, the Board of Directors is of the view that there are reasonable grounds to challenge the validity of the said notices and the penalty imposed. This is especially given that the interest income which the IRB is seeking to subject to income tax had been disallowed as interest expense which were incurred for the same SCR exercise at the hand of the payer namely, Magnum Holdings Sdn. Bhd. and reflected as part of the settlement of previous tax audit conducted by the IRB on the Group in 2017.
It is anticipated that there will not be an immediate financial impact on the Group as the Board is seeking to secure a stand over pending the resolution of this matter.
