Kindly be informed that the Bar Council Conveyancing Practice Committee (“CPC”) plans to organise meetings with representatives from the Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia (Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri Malaysia, “LHDNM”) and the relevant State Land Office Registries, to discuss issues faced by Members of the Bar in dealing with these governmental bodies.

In order to have meaningful and effective meetings, we invite Members to provide feedback on pertinent issues, including details of the transactions concerned.

Kindly submit your input on or before 31 July 2017 (Monday) by:
