Abstract

The best way to understand Reinvestment Allowance (RA) is to build a solid foundation on the principles on RA. The emphasis in the research is to provide foundation by discussing the basic principles and practice of RA with reference on case law decisions and administrative practices. Therefore, the research contains chapters on the implementation of RA in Malaysia, the theoretical aspects of RA systems and conditions‘ the legal and practical aspects of RA as well as illustrations of the applications of the field audit principles. Tax law is best appreciated by studying leading cases and the manner in which the decision was reached. Therefore, relevant local Case law decisions are discussed in this research. The aim of this study is (i) to examine the responsibilities and techniques used by the Corporate Tax Department (CTD) to avoid manipulation of Reinvestment Allowance claim; (ii) to identify the level of knowledge and experience required by the Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia’s officers in the CTD in order to successfully deal with taxpayers on RA; and (iii) to identify and analyze the limitations or weaknesses of the Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia’s rules and regulations in preventing the manipulation of RA claim, This study is based on primary and secondaIy data from me CTD as well as the relevant departments in the Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia (IRBM). The data cover all RA cases handled by the field audit officers of the CTD in the year 2012. Altogether there were 54 cases distributed by the Tax Compliance Department of the IRBM for the period to be reviewed. The study showed that the field audit officers of the CTD have expressed their responses through questionnaires, interviews and observations. The aim of this is to fulfil the requirements of the research objectives. The study also indicates that the Income Tax Act [967 (ITA 1967) and the Public Ruling No. 6/2012 are compulsory for documentation to prepare the field audit. The study provides vital information to the field audit officers of the CTD to handle the RA cases carefully. As For the CTD and the IRBM, this empirical study might help them to review the RA policies as well as the guidelines in implementing the RA monitoring systems.
