Members’ Dialogue - Malaysian Business Reporting System (MBRS)  print
(2 CPD Hours)
We are pleased to inform members that we will be organising four Members’ Dialogues on MBRS as follows:

Date : 1. Thursday, 22 February 2018
2. Friday, 23 February 2018
3. Friday, 23 March 2018
4. Thursday, 29 March 2018
Time : 9.30am–11.30am (Registration at 9.00am)
Venue : Auditorium, Level 3, Bangunan MAICSA
No. 57, The Boulevard, Mid Valley City
Lingkaran Syed Putra 59200 Kuala Lumpur
Topic : Malaysian Business Reporting System (MBRS)
Facilitator : Chin Woon Li FCIS, Deputy Head of Technical, MAICSA

The objective of the Dialogues will be to inculcate knowledge and awareness on MBRS amongst Members. SSM has on 22 January 2018 released the MBRS Preparation Tools in relation to its introduction of a submission platform based on the eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) format in 2018. This submission platform will be known as the MBRS which allows for the annual submission filing of the Financial Statements and Reports (FS), Annual Return (AR) and Exemption Applications (EA) which are related to the FS and AR applications.

The four Members' Dialogues cover the same topic, MBRS. We are organising four Dialogues to be able to accommodate as many members as possible. Please note that these Members' Dialogues are open only to current Members, Graduates and Affiliates.

Two (2) CPD hours will be accorded to Fellow and Associate Members who attend the Members' Dialogue. Members, Graduates and Affiliates who are interested should register with the Secretariat at technical@maicsa.org.my. Each Member, Graduate or Affiliate can register for ONLY one Dialogue and registrations will be accepted on a first come first served basis.

Members, Graduates and Affiliates who have registered for the Members' Dialogues and are not able to attend should notify the Secretariat in advance so that your place can be offered to others on the waiting list. Please note that should you be absent from two Members' Dialogues, without informing the Secretariat in advance, your name will be placed on a black-list and you will not receive any preference for registration for future Members Dialogues.

Further to our announcement on 23 January 2018, the Institute has extracted salient features from the MBRS Preparation Tools and developed comments based on the SSM feedback template, to facilitate comments by members. Members who wish to submit any comments, are requested to submit them to the MAICSA Secretariat at technical@maicsa.org.my before 26 February 2018.

Please click here for the feedback template developed by the Institute to submit comments. Your comments will assist SSM to improve and fine-tune the MBRS implementation plan.
