The Shell Annual Supplier Pinnacle was part of Shell Malaysia efforts to ensure that suppliers understand Shell’s business principles in conducting business, such as Shell General Principles of Business (SGBP), Health Safety Security Environment (HSSE), Life Saving Rules (LSR) and implementation of government’s new tax policies Goods and Services Tax (GST).
Shell Malaysia aspires to working closely with its current pool of approximately 800 suppliers to embed the new processes and documentation to reign in the implementation of GST in 2015.
Essentially, this year Supplier Pinnacle was converging towards the building block of a robust partnership with Suppliers to increase the level of GST awareness and understanding which includes Suppliers’ GST registration, reformatting documentation and addressing several potential general misconceptions about GST impact and application.
“The importance of a clear understanding on the ways of working with Shell and advanced planning & preparations with our Suppliers to prepare for the GST implementation in 2015 will bring about great synergies and alignment to ensure minimal disruption to how we conduct business with our suppliers and our customers.” said CP Lee, Shell Malaysia Senior Procurement Manager.
“This engagement is good and I applaud Shell for being proactive in keeping suppliers abreast of the GST implementation. Together as partners, we are well-informed on how, when and where to register our company for GST. The in-depth sharing on the overall GST principles and impact on Shell, suppliers and the end customers helps me appreciate the implementation of GST in Malaysia.” said Sharon Koh, Marketing Director, KB Colour Image Sdn Bhd.
“I can confidently say that Shell and my company are both on par in terms of our advanced journey & preparation towards the GST implementation in Malaysia where the kick off preparations were initiated sometime early last year” said Venessa Rajagopal, Head of Corporate & MNC Sales, Enterprise Solutions, Maxis Berhad.
