SEREMBAN: The Sessions Court here today ordered a textiles and clothing company to settle a balance of RM195,835.65 in Goods & Services Tax (GST) it owed the government. The GST civil action against WSF Trading is the first of its kind in the state. The government served as the plaintiff while Wong Sing Fei, the sole director of the company, was the defendant. Judge N.Kanageswani, in chambers, ordered the defendant to settle the amount from the judgment date. In its statement of claim, the defendant had filed its GST statements for September and October 2015, amounting to RM195,835.65. The plaintiff had filed the notice of claim on November when the defendant failed to settle the amount. The plaintiff said it made various efforts to get the defendant to pay up, which proved futile. The plaintiff was represented by Negri Sembilan Customs prosecutor Amirul Syafiq Mahadi while Wong was unrepresented.
