PETALING JAYA: The Kuala Lumpur High Court has allowed a petition by the Government to wind-up a company that deals in cars over non-payment of taxes.
The Inland Revenue Board (IRB) said in a statement on Friday that the winding-up petition was filed against Amira Ventures Sdn Bhd for failing to pay additional taxes totalling RM4,088,578.51 for the years of assessment 2007 and 2008.
The IRB said the filing of the petition was based on judgments obtained on Nov 21, 2013 and Nov 22, 2013.
“Kuala Lumpur High Court judge Justice Ahmad Zaidi Ibrahim made the decision after hearing the arguments of tax lawyer Mohamad Ezmeer Zulkarnaen Asnizar, while Amira Ventures Sdn Bhd was not represented,” the board said.
The statement said that Amira Ventures was established in 2002 and holds an Approved Permit (AP) to sell, import and export branded cars.
