Monkeys No Exemptions?
Tax exemptions for flying flag during Merdeka
The Government will give tax exemptions to hotels, shopping complexes and offices for expenditure incurred for flying the Malaysian flag during the 50th Independence celebration, said Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Shafie Apdal.
"I am disappointed that not many flags are up yet," he said adding that businesses need not wait until Aug 17, when the Government is to launch the flag-flying event.
Shafie said that the Ministry had also spoken with the management of Tenaga Nasional Bhd to give businesses special rates for the extra use of electricity.
