B. REDUCTION OF PERAK BAR ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION.
We understand the continuing difficulties that Members are experiencing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Government’s Movement Control Order (“MCO”). Perak Bar reduced last year [ 2020 ] subscription to help ease the cash flow problem that Members are facing.
Having carefully looked through the financials and having considered the provisions of the Legal Profession Act (LPA) 1976 namely S.73 (i), (ii) and (iv), the Perak Bar Committee has on the 3rd March 2021 unanimously decided to reduce the current subscription of RM150.00 to RM100.00. The said reduction is only applicable for the year 2021 only. Members who have already paid their subscription, Perak Bar will refund the excess amount.
Please take note that although the reduction of RM50.00 may seem to be a small amount, it is a substantial amount which will affect the overall income of Perak Bar. The Committee has already taken cost-cutting measures and this amount (after reduction) collected from members will be just sufficient to cover the annual expenditure without any deficit.
Stay safe. Thank you.
