A group photo after a hard-fought Goods and Services Tax trial at Balik Pulau Court!
Both parties, the Royal Malaysian Customs Department’s lawyer and us, wound up our submissions last Friday before the Custom Appeal Tribunal.
As directed, both counsels handed in and exchanged respective written submissions before the hearing commenced. The Tribunal then stood down the case for 30 minutes to enable both counsels to prepare their oral submissions in reply. After hearing both parties’ oral submissions for nearly an hour, the Tribunal reserved the decision and fixed early January next year to deliver its judgment.
We have our lawyers Veon Szu Khaw and Hor Yang Qi in the group photo. Also present there was our intern, Rebecca Lim. Our team was assisted by EWE PENG YEOH, the tax consultant.
