Notes: (1) All references to legislation or public rulings shown in square brackets are for information only and do not form part of the answer expected from candidates. (2) Marks indicated with a * are awarded for the allocation of the appropriate description to the figure calculated, not for the figure itself. Section A 1 B Trisha was physically present in Malaysia only for 120 days during the year of assessment 2011. She was a non-resident [under Section 7 of the Income Tax Act, 1967] and will not be entitled to any personal relief and also not entitled to the scale rates to calculate her income tax liability. She will be taxed as a non-resident at a flat rate of 26% on the gross income. Therefore, her income tax is RM2,600 [(RM2,500 x 4 = RM10,000) x 26%]. Marks

2 B Rosliza is entitled to claim child relief of RM1,000 for the year of assessment of 2011 even if the child is adopted. She is entitled to claim child relief for the adopted child as long as the adoption was carried out legally. 3 C Haris share is RM7,500 and Mei Lees share is RM12,500 for the year of assessment 2011.

4 A An exemption of RM20,000 is available to be set-off against royalty income from musical composition [under paragraph 32D of Schedule 6 of ITA, 1967]. Therefore, the amount assessable to income tax for the royalty income for the year of assessment is RM2,000 (RM22,000 RM20,000) 5 A A taxpayer who wishes to lodge an appeal against any assessment has to do so within 30 days of the date of issue of the assessment with the Director General Inland Revenue. Therefore, the company has to lodge an appeal against the additional assessment for the year of assessment 2009 on or before 30 March 2011. 6 C The maximum amount available for a tax deduction is RM50,000. This is because [under Section 39(1)(k) of the ITA, 1967], where the on-the-road cost of the vehicle exceeds RM150,000 then the maximum lease rentals allowable as a deduction is restricted to RM50,000. In the case where the on-the-road cost of the vehicle is below RM150,000 then the claim can be restricted to RM100,000 or the actual cost of the vehicle if it is lower than RM100,000.

7 D Triton Sdn Bhd can claim capital allowances for the amount of deposits and capital portion of the instalments paid during the year of assessment 2011. There is no restriction on the cost as the van is a licensed commercial vehicle. The qualifying expenditure for the van, that is available for the claim of capital allowances, is RM90,000. 8 D Generally, when a reduced assessment is issued to a taxpayer, it means that the taxpayer is assessed on income that is lower compared to the original or additional assessment raised earlier and under normal circumstances, the taxpayer will be due for a refund of the excess tax paid. There will be no additional taxes to be paid under normal circumstances when a reduced assessment is issued. Unutilised capital allowances carried forward is available for set-off only against the same business source and not against any other business source. Unabsorbed losses carried forward is available for set-off against any business source and is not restricted to the same business source. Therefore, statements A, B and C are false. Interest income derived by a non-resident person is subject to a withholding tax of 15%. Therefore, statement D is true.

9 A Nil threshold. There is no minimum threshold amount for any person who is in the business of providing management and consultancy services.
