When should you consider using a tax agent? Here are some situations where it will be advantageous to engage a tax agent like Paul Hype Page.
Erroneous Past Tax Returns
Get professional advice and assist with filing an amended return and help minimise the damage previously caused as well as the next best steps to take.
New Business Start-up
Hiring a tax agent for a business may turn out to be a smart business investment in the long run. It will save you a lot of time and hassle for you to concentrate on your business while you leave the tax matters to the professional.
Currently, Malaysia does not have any form of death tax, estate duty or inheritance tax. There was an estate duty in place until it was abolished on 1 November 1991. This means that, in Malaysia, there is no final tax on the accumulated wealth of a deceased person.
However, should you find yourself inheriting an amount of money, it is best to consult with a professional before filing your tax returns as it is important that the executors file appropriate tax return to declare the deceased’s estate. These details may be unfamiliar to you and a tax agent can ensure that you inherit the estate hassle-free.
Change in Marital Status
Whether newly married or recently divorced, a tax professional can advise the best way to move forward. Generally, divorced couples are advised to file separately so that one does not have to be liable for the other should there be unpaid taxes. A tax agent can also see to it that alimony if any, has either been paid or received properly.
Filing tax returns can be time-consuming and aggravating especially when yours is not a simple case of merely deducting tax relief off your chargeable income. A tax agent will be able to ensure that your taxes are done accurately through much quicker and effective work allowing you to make better use of your time, and possibly help you gain tax incentives.
Lack of Knowledge
If you have a lack of knowledge regarding taxation in Malaysia, you may be susceptible to making mistakes which may result in high penalties. Tax agents can help to you figure our sales tax rules and avoid common mistakes like unintentional tax evasion and tax crimes.
