Dear__,

I wish you well and happy.

It is a great occasion to inform you that the Tax Planning on Real Property Gains Tax(2013), first edition will be released sometime 18 June 2013.

Tax Planning on Real Property Gains Tax is the first reference source that examines the criteria of the Inland Revenue Board (IRB) in assessing the gains from a land sale to income tax or RPGT. Generally, RPGT is preferred than income tax. This book reviews the appeals of both the taxpayer and IRB and examines the findings and decisions of the Special Commissioners of Income Tax and the Courts from the High Court to the Court of Appeal and Federal Court and to the then Privy Council, clarifying and shedding legal principles on the various contentious issues involved.

History of RPGT and flow charts illustrating the detailed application of the RPGT, the RPGT Act 1976, together with the tax changes made from years 1977 to 2013, and explanatory statements from 1977 have been included for completeness and also to include a complete source of reference on explanatory statements. Explanatory statements are served as an aid of interpretation and to set the intention of Parliament introducing the new legislations.

This book is a must have source of reference guide for property developer, contactor, tax and business consultants, legal practitioners, auditors or any taxpayers involved in land acquisitions and disposals.

The price of Tax Planning on Real Property Gains Tax is RM220 and now it will be specially promoted at price RM170. The promotion period valid until 20 July 2013.
Please make the payment to "Infoworld" by cheque or direct bank in to CIMB Bank: 1225 0003 7120 51 and fax the order form together with the payment slip to 03-7727 4491 or email to order.infoworld@gmail.com.

For any enquiries, please contact Ms. Kee at  012-627 2293.

Best wishes,

Malaysia-Talk on Judicial Control of the Media | The Commonwealth Experience (17 June 2013)

Talk on Judicial Control of the Media | The Commonwealth Experience (17 June 2013)




________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________



Circular No 130/2013
Dated 7 June 2013
To Members of the Malaysian Bar
Talk on Judicial Control of the Media: The Commonwealth Experience (17 June 2013)
Date:                  17 June 2013 (Monday)
Time:                  5:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Venue:                Tun Suffian Auditorium, University of Malaya
Registration fee:  Free for Members of the Bar and pupils in chambers
Event code:        17062013/LIAAM/KL2055/2
CPD points:        Two
The Tun Azmi Foundation was created under the auspices of the Honourable Society of Lincoln's Inn Alumni Association, Malaysia ("LIAAM") and its purpose is the furtherance of legal education.  In achievement of this purpose, it has donated money to Lincoln's Inn for Malaysian students who have excelled in the study of law; and also made various donations to local universities including the University of Malaya, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Universiti Teknologi Mara and the Malaysian Multimedia University.  The Tun Azmi Foundation also funds talks by other alumni including the Inner Temple Association.
This talk will explore the role of the media in influencing the views of nations, and whether the judiciary is in a position, within specific jurisdictions, to limit or regulate freedom of the press.  While it is recognised that journalists may not be totally impartial, a freedom of the press should allow for a flourishing of ideas, even where such ideas are contrary to the political agenda of the nation.  The speaker will emphasise the need for a code of ethical conduct within the broader framework of regulations, as demonstrated by a variety of cases but he is of the view that such regulation and/or control should not stifle media freedom.  The key element is to be able to balance the right to free speech, which is not an absolute right, with the need for control of the media by the judiciary.
