MKMA First Session
We provided GST Implementation sessions for the MKMA members, who mainly comprise textile processing and manufacturing corporations.
Our maiden seminar with them saw a turnout of approximately 50 representatives who have already been to various GST Overview Seminars organized by the Royal Malaysian Customs and a local Chartered Accountant. They have also attended a previous MKMA seminar involving special GST Schemes such as the Approved Traders Scheme and Approved Toll Manufacturers Scheme.
For them, we delivered a Seminar focused on core GST concepts and implementation strategy. To our surprise and delight, the participants were very enthusiastic with our manner of delivering the core GST concepts. The crowd was active throughout the session, asking questions and providing scenarios in order to better understand how GST really affected their business operations.
Also present was an atmosphere of wanting as the MKMA participants foresaw the complications that GST would present, especially transitional issues and supply of goods during the crucial week before and after the GST implementation date.
Overall, the maiden GST Implementation sessions for MKMA was very well received as participants and MKMA itself was very happy with the quality of delivery.
MKMA Repeat Session
Due to popular demand, we were asked by MKMA to repeat the GST Implementation sessions so that more members could learn crucial GST knowledge and more importantly, benefit from our unique manner of delivery which ensured clear and simple-to-understand approach to learning.
Within a short period of 7 work days, MKMA had gathered approximately the same number of participants AND ran the second seminar for MKMA. This was a https://www.cialissansordonnancefr24.com/cialis-20mg-prix/ record!
We were also the happy recipients of a specially prepared plaque which was ceremoniously presented to us at the second MKMA GST Seminar – something that both the organizers and we will remember for a long time. Furthermore, there was newspaper coverage of our MKMA GST session which was featured in a local daily.
For the second session, expectations were high as this round of fresh participants came prepared with more questions on their operational issues. We were also pleased to note that certain participants were sent by their superiors (who had attended the first session and found it very useful).
In conclusion, MKMA members shared many of the problems and uncertainties of other manufacturers. They also faced the common problem of not being able to obtain definitive answers locally. We hoped that our GST sessions helped to fill the knowledge gap and assisted participants in their preparations towards GST implementation.
