    Appeal against the IRBM's disallowance of claim for tax relief by holder of a Pioneer Certificate: Civil Appeal No 14-1-01/2015 (2016) MSTC 30-125 High Court, Kuala Lumpur. Decided on 10 May 2016. Revenue law Tax exemption Pioneer status  Pioneer certificate granted by Minister of International Trade and Industry ("MITI") Alleged non-compliance of pioneer certificate Letter written by Inland Revenue Board ("IRB") to MITI to cancel the pioneer certificate No show cause letter issued by MITI to the respondent company  Whether IRB had acted ultra vires in disallowing the respondent's claim for the tax incentives under the pioneer certificate. The respondent company had been granted pioneer status and pioneer certificate for the production of examination gloves. A 100% exemption had been granted to the respondent by the Government through the Minister of International Trade and Industry. Under Condition (j) of the pioneer certificate, the respondent shall export all its products. Pursuant to an audit conducted by the appellant, it was discovered that the respondent did not export all its products but the export was also undertaken by its holding company. In view of this, the appellant contended that the respondent had breached Condition (j) of the pioneer certificate. Therefore, it was not entitled to the tax exemption granted to it by MITI. The appellant then informed MITI vide its letter dated 17 July 2009 of the alleged non-compliance and suggested to MITI to cancel the pioneer certificate granted to the respondent pursuant to s 9 of the Promotion of Investments Act 1986. The letter sent to MITI was not copied to the respondent. The Special Commissioners of the Income Tax ("SCIT") found that the appellant had failed to seek clarification with the respondent relating to the reasons the sale was made through the holding company before writing to MITI. There was no show cause letter issued by the respondent by MITI to afford the opportunity to the respondent to state its version against that of the appellant. Further, the appellant was not the proper authority to decide if the export through the respondent's holding company satisfied the requirement of Condition (j) of the pioneer certificate. This fell within the purview of MITI. SCIT was of the view that the appellant exceeded its authority. Held: dismissing the appeal.
