TERENGGANU, March 6 (Bernama) -- SALIHIN and Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT) is pleased today to announce the official launching of the world’s first Teaching Accountancy Firm (TAF) at Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT), by guest of honor, Minister of Higher Education, YB Dato’ Seri Idris Jusoh.

The TAF, which is a branch of SALIHIN and located at UMT’s School of Maritime Business and Management, is a joint collaboration between SALIHIN and UMT to provide a unique and advanced learning and practical training platform for both accounting lecturers and students. “It is a hallmark of SALIHIN’s innovative practical solution addressing the unmet needs and challenges facing the nation, the industry and the academia in nurturing and producing industry-ready graduates,” said Salihin Abang, Managing Partner of SALIHIN, Chartered Accountants.

He believes that accountancy related subjects, such as financial accounting, direct taxation, GST, auditing, company secretarial practice and the like, are practical in nature, yet students and lecturers are not adequately exposed to real-life industry practice in the learning process. Ironically, these students are expected to meet industry standards and ready for absorption in the profession. Concerns about skill-mismatch, incompetency and other graduate employability issues are best addressed with the concept of TAF, just like a Teaching Hospital.

The TAF is a great platform SALIHIN and UMT introduced in the world accounting fraternity to integrate real-life industry environment with teaching and learning environment for holistic engagement with students and lecturers. Thus, it will provide strong, effective, efficient, and sustainable capacity building to both lecturers and students.

The uniqueness of this initiative is that it is jointly managed and ran by SALIHIN and UMT. SALIHIN is made up of a group of distinct entities tailoring unique and independent consulting services in the areas of auditing and assurance, taxation (direct and indirect), shariah auditing, business advisory and corporate finance. Meanwhile UMT is the focused-marine based university that has undergone various transformations for better quality of human capital formation.

This marriage between SALIHIN and UMT is expected to contribute immensely in nurturing and producing quality employable accounting graduates by bridging the gap between theory and practice in a real-industry atmosphere.

Rahmat Di Sebalik Kejatuhan Ringgit

Posted on 27/12/2016 (wak anip)

Kerajaan tidak gagal dalam menangani kejatuhan nilai ringgit bahkan lebih bijak serta berhemah dan memahami erti sebenar tentang penyusutan nilai ringgit ini apabila kejadian sebegini berlaku di setiap 10 atau 20 tahun sekali.

Apabila nilai ringgit jatuh secara mendadak maka kerajaan mungkin akan menyekat beberapa aktiviti berat seperti pembelian barangan dari negara asing dan dari luar negara untuk mengekang sedikit prasarana asing supaya dapat membuat sejumlah pembelian berkos tinggi secara perlahan dan berhemah sehingga nilai ringgit kembali pulih.

Kerajaan tidak berhasrat untuk menyangga nilai ringgit walaupun perangkaan menunjukkan jelas bahawa ringgit mulai menyusut secara drastik ke paras yang kritikal atau ke paras terendah kerana inilah waktunya yang dapat memberi sedikit peluang bagi pengurup wang negara atau mereka yang berurus niaga hadapan wang dapat meraih keuntungan.

Para pelancong asing terutamanya yang datang dari negara-negara Eropah dan negara-negara di blok barat dapat menikmati pertukaran wang mereka yang lebih baik apabila mereka datang untuk melancong ke Malaysia.

Begitu juga kepada penduduk dalam negara sendiri dapat menikmati keuntungan yang berlipat ganda dari hasil perniagaan matawang bersama negara-negara jiran seperti Thailand, Indonesia yang sememangnya boleh menjadikan satu tarikan terhadap ekonomi apabila mereka melancong ke negara tersebut dengan dapatan penambahan dari nilaian Rupiah atau Bath yang jauh lebih menguntungkan apabila berlakunya penyusutan nilai matawang tersebut.

Sewaktu berlakunya era penyusutan nilai ringgit ini penulis lebih kepada memberi cadangan kepada kerajaan Malaysia supaya dapat mengandakan untuk lagi usaha untuk membina 'satu empayar pelancongan negara' ke tahap yang lebih tinggi ertinya kerajaan Malaysia perlu membuat berbagai 'promosi pelancongan ' yang hebat terhadap seluruh warga Barat dan Eropah untuk datang melawat Malaysia sebagai 'Tahun Melawat Malaysia sepanjang Tahun ' .

Apabila berlakunya penyusutan nilai ringgit sebegini maka 'promosi pelancongan Eropah ' menjadi satu agenda tahunan negara untuk memperkenalkan secara drastik promosi sebagai ' Malaysia Indah ' di mata dunia dan sekali gus menarik pelancong untuk datang ke Malaysia.

Pelancong dari Eropah tentu tertarik dari pakej tawaran yang kerajaan berikan dan akan bertambah gembira apabila pertukarn wang mereka lebih menguntungkan apabila mereka datang ke Malaysia.Sebagai contoh satu pinggan nasi lemak berharga 5 ringgit Malaysia namun bagi pelancong yang datang dari 'Great Britain mereka akan berkata ' wow! Ini nasi lemak cuma 1 URO, oh! very cheap!'.

Begitu juga sesakali bagi rakyat Malaysia yang pergi melancong ke Bali Indonesia dan harga makanan di sana amat murah berbanding dengan tukaran wang ringgit Malaysia.Sebab pernah berlaku di suatu ketika nilaian pertukaran ringgit berbanding dengan nilai rupiah mencecah sehingga 5000 kali ganda .Contohnya 200 ringgit Malaysia bersamaan dengan satu juta rupiah Indonesia.

Sebenarnya berlakunya penyusutan nilai ringgit ini adalah juga sebagai satu ' Rahmat ' bukanya satu bentuk. ' Alamat Kiamat' terhadap ekonomi di sesebuah negara.

Oleh itu belajarlah dengan erti 'kesabaran' .Seluruh para pemimpin negara perlu bersikap positif terhadap apa yang berlaku untuk berdepan dengan unjuran dari penyusutan nilai ringgit ini ke arah satu bentuk pendekatan yang lebih realistik dan boleh membawa kepada sesuatu yang lebih menguntungkan.

Bagi seluruh badan perusahaan dan perniaga besar , natijah dari keadaan penyusutan nilai ringgit ini mungkin akan membawa sedikit kerugian namun kerugian ini bersifat sementara bahkan akan dapat sesuatu yang lebih menguntungkan secara keadaah yang dapat mengatasi permasalaan dengan membuat suatu 'post mortem ' semula dengan suatu cara perniagaan yang akan mendapat lebihan keuntungan mungkin yang berlipat kali ganda dalam jangka masa pendek atau panjang apabila keadaan nilai ringgit kembali stabil.

Student Engagement with the industry

Posted on 19/01/2017 (fana)

In Malaysia, higher education is integral to the professionalisation of financial accounting area. However, the traditional separation between academia and practice in tertiary curriculum does not necessarily equip students with the skills required to apply the content in a professional context.

Thus, this platform is being utilised to bring industry-experience to the students so that it can convey encouraging vibes to them especially to the final year students. SALIHIN’s consultants engaged with the accounting students via exposing to them the reality of working life in an accountancy firm. Students are also given chances to learn hands-on experience of working environment as they can undergo practical training in TAF Office located in UMT
