New Straits Times - - Business -

KUALA LUMPUR: YYC & Co, a lead­ing lo­cal au­dit and tax­a­tion firm, re­cently an­nounced the ap­point­ment of Tan Sri Mohd Shukor Mah­far as as­so­ciate part­ner of its tax divi­sion, with ef­fect from May 24.

Shukor was the chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer (CEO) and di­rec­tor-gen­eral for the In­land Rev­enue Board of Malaysia from 2011 to 2015.

As an as­so­ciate part­ner, he will work with the YYC tax divi­sion team to more ef­fec­tively de­liver pro­fes­sional tax ser­vices and yield a broader client base to cre­ate aware­ness among small and medium en­ter­prises (SMEs) on is­sues of tax­a­tion.

“SMEs are the back­bone of Malaysia’s econ­omy, and it is cru­cial that busi­nesses un­der­stand the im­por­tance and ben­e­fits of tax­a­tion,” said Shukor in a state­ment.

He was also the chair­man of the Com­mon­wealth As­so­ci­a­tion of Tax Ad­min­is­tra­tors from 2012–2015, where he be­came the pres­i­dent in 2015.

Shukor was also ap­pointed the Ad­junct Pro­fes­sor of Uniten, Uni­tar, UUM, UiTM and UniMAP and was awarded the CEO of The Year 2015 by the Euro­pean Emerg­ing Mar­kets Awards and the 2015 Life­time Achieve­ment Award — Out­stand­ing Con­tri­bu­tion in Shap­ing Peo­ple by The Asia HRD Award.

“We are hon­oured to wel­come Shukor on board as our as­so­ciate part­ner and we look for­ward to his in­put and con­tri­bu­tion to fur­ther grow and strengthen YYC tax divi­sion in Malaysia, es­pe­cially re­in­forc­ing our pro­fes­sional ser­vices and roles among SMEs,” said YYC Group CEO Datin Yap Shin Siang.
