As the sole proprietor of SY Tan & Co (‘the Firm’) had been punished and imposed a fine of RM4000-00 and costs of RM4000-00 by the Disciplinary Committee of the Institute on 21/6/2023 for she had as at 15/7/2022 through the Firm’s Facebook page and website at advertised for audit and tax services and job recruitment relating to audit and tax services. Such advertisements are highly likely give rise to an inference to the public at large that the Firm is in the business of offering audit and tax services when in fact she is not an audit and tax license holder issued by the relevant authorities nor is the Firm an audit firm permitted to advertise as such.
