Petronas granted stay on RM3.6 bil additional tax demand
August 12, 2020
KUALA LUMPUR: The Inland Revenue Board (LHDN) says a leave application for judicial review by Petronas on additional tax assessment before the High Court here has been postponed, pending the outcome of a Federal Court ruling later this month.
Its director of corporate services department, Hisamudin Mohamed, clarified that judge Ahmad Kamal Md Shahid adjourned the hearing following a postponement sought by lawyer Rosli Dahlan, who represented the oil and gas company.
“The judge agreed to the request and the leave application is now fixed for hearing on Sept 18,” he said in a statement.
Hisamudin said Petronas was granted an interim stay from paying RM3.6 billion following an application by Rosli.
