Inti International University & Colleges upgrade to Sage 300 ERP 2012 for Malaysia GST compliances.

Press Release: 5 May 2014

The upcoming proposed 6% Goods and Service Tax (GST) will equally apply to Inti Group  from April 1, 2015 as Parliament approves the GST bill which was debated in the March/April 2014 session.

Realizing that early preparation is very important since April 1, 2015 date will soon be here, INTI International University and INTI International Colleges (A part Laureate International Universities network) has taken the early steps in upgrading to Sage 300 ERP v. 2012. This version is accredited by the Royal Customs of Malaysia.

According to its spokesman, we have done the following in early preparation for the GST as we are a large organization. We believe early preparation is the key to a smooth transition and operation for the entire Inti Group.

In Phase 1, we upgrade our software to the GST compliance version of Sage 300 ERP v. 2012 for Software readiness. We will do the necessary hardware and installation and data migration to the Sage 300 ERP v. 2012. 

In the 2nd Phase we will engage CareWare’s CTIM (Charted Tax Institute of Malaysia) certified consultants to implement, set-up and customized any specific forms & reports to support our GST submission. This will includes both local and overseas transactions involving goods, services and financial & intellectual property transactions. It will be important to classify on the output side (ie. sale/revenue) all the supplies into standard or zero rated or out of scope or exempt supplies as each has different implications. The exempt and out of scope supplies are not taxable supplies but the zero rated supply is a taxable supply without GST. On the input side (ie. acquisition), the key issue is whether the input tax can be recovered.

We have for now a total of  eighty three (83>) concurrent users and two hundred (200) names users from its Subang Jaya Campus,  and remotely access from all colleges/schools will log-in via internet (Private Cloud) from remote sites to its central locations.

Sage 300 ERP enabled a seamless process and interaction between back office finance, operation and purchasing that is greatly enhance, with Sage 300 ERP 2012 for a centralized solution that would enable integration within and between the different educations business units.
