    EVERISE SPRINT (M) SDN BHD v. MINISTER OF FINANCE, MALAYSIA & ANOR[1]*
    by
    JESS NGO HUI ZHONG

    IN THIS ARTICLE, JESS NGO HUI ZHONG ANALYSES THE CASE OF EVERISE SPRINT (M) SDN BHD V. MINISTER OF FINANCE, MALAYSIA & ANOR ON THE IMPORTANCE OF STRICT INTERPRETATION OF TAX STATUTES

    Facts

    Everise Sprint (M) Sdn Bhd ("Everise") is in the business of buying and selling used primed movers ("Goods"). Everise bought the Goods from Scania Malaysia Sdn Bhd ("Scania Malaysia"). The Goods were supplied by Scania (GB) Ltd United Kingdom ("Scania UK"), the exporter. In the customs declaration form, Red Synergy Corporation Sdn Bhd ("Red Synergy") was specified as the consignee or the importer of the Goods. After clearing Customs, the forwarders issued the invoices for customs duties and sales taxes to Everise which were duly paid by Everise.

    Following an audit conducted on Scania Malaysia, the State Director of Customs Selangor ("SDCS") discovered that the declared value and the assessed value of the Goods were not based on the actual amount paid to the exporter. Accordingly, the SDCS claimed the shortfall ("short-paid taxes") from Scania Malaysia and Everise.

    Everise refused to pay the short-paid taxes claiming that they were not the importer of the Goods and applied to the Minister of Finance ("MOF") for a remission of the short-paid taxes.

    'THE MODERNISATION OF ACCESS TO JUSTICE IN TIMES OF AUSTERITY'*
    by
    THE RT. HON. SIR ERNEST RYDER

    Introduction

    1. Good evening. I was honoured to give the inaugural lecture in this series some four years ago before I had the pleasure of being installed as your Chancellor. This is my third year as Chancellor in what has been for me a remarkable journey: discovering just how vibrant, diverse and optimistic our student population is and how important the University is and you are to the economic and social future of our region, the Northern Powerhouse. I was, and remain, very privileged to lend my name to the series.

    2. On the occasion of my first lecture, back in the autumn of 2012, when the country was basking in its Olympic glories, I spoke about the importance of respect for the autonomy of our citizens and the opportunities then before us to modernise our family justice system. Since then, reports and speeches (in particular about public - including legal - policy) have become ever more sombre in focus. The word 'austerity' seems to creep into the titles and text of most major addresses we now hear. Following Sartre, I'll follow the crowd in order to be different.

    3. I take this approach for a very important reason. It's one that I expect the Lord Chancellor and his colleagues in Cabinet would recognise and I would like to explore the point with you. It is in many ways a simple reason. The point about 'austerity' is this. What is right, is right; what is fair, is fair; and what is just, is just. Justice has no second class: even in an age of austerity.

    . . .
