Launching of New Annual Reporting Format for Societies
As part of a pilot project, the Selangor's Registrar of Societies (ROS) launched a new annual reporting format that societies registered in the state would need to comply to. ROS introduced a "B9" form which incorporates the requirements of three important legislations and recommendations: The Societies Act 1966; The Asia-Pacific Group of anti-money laundering (APG Mutual Evaluation 2007) and APG Non Profit Organization Typologies 2011. Five Accounting Research Institute (ARI)researchers: Associate Professor Dr Roshayani, Prof Dr Normah, Prof Dr Rashidah, Associate Prof Dr Jamaliah and Dr Intan Salwani participated in the development of this initiative. ROS is planning to introduce the online report submission within the next few years. Today, the launching of the new format was graced by the deputy minister, Ministry of Home Affairs, Dato' Lee Chee Leong at a special event held at Stadium Chin Woo, Kuala Lumpur. A total of three hundred participants who represented various societies in Selangor attended the launching ceremony. Congratulations ROS.
