Two companies fined for failure to submit income tax
BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN
TWO companies were each imposed a fine after their directors pleaded guilty to failing to submit their annual income tax particulars to the Ministry of Finance (MoF).
The court fined $1,500 on Aryaduta Sdn Bhd for not filing the particulars for the years ending in 2011, 2012 and 2013 after notices were issued.
Meanwhile, Nyuk Lian Press Sdn Bhd was fined $2,500 after its director pleaded guilty to failure to submit the income tax particulars for the years 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 after notices were issued.
The court document stated that Aryaduta Sdn Bhd was given 30 days from February 7 to comply with the final notices and submit all the required documents, while Nyuk Lian Press Sdn Bhd was also given 30 days from February 25 to file the tax income details.
However, the defendants had failed, without any reasonable excuse, to furnish the Revenue Section, MoF, with the income and particulars form.
The form is required for the purpose of ascertaining the income tax of the company as required of all companies pursuant to Section 52 of the Income Tax Act (Cap 35).
Failure to comply with Section 52 of the Income Tax Act, Chapter 35, is an offence under Section 78(1) of the Income Tax Act, Chapter 35, which carries a $10,000 fine.
Meanwhile, a man on Saturday claimed trial over the charges of breaking into a house and stealing a car.
The court document filed by deputy public prosecutor Pg Nina Jasmine stated that Mohamad Alif Liadin, 32, is accused of breaking into a house in Kg Meragang and had stolen two house keys and the key to a Mazda CX-7 last May 1.
It went on to state that the defendant went to the house’s garage and stole the Mazda CX-7 on the same day.
During the proceedings, Mohamad Alif pleaded not guilty to both charges and the trial is scheduled to be heard before the Intermediate Court from July 2.
