28th April, 2020

The Selangor Bar is fully aware that the COVID-19-induced contraction is having disastrous consequences. The pandemic is indeed straining our budgets, as we struggle to meet our personal and firm’s needs.

In the circumstances the Selangor Bar have deliberated on the possibility of granting some reduction on the subscription payable to the Selangor Bar for the year 2020. This was in line with the Malaysian Bar’s magnanimity to reduce the Annual Subscription and some of the levies.

Having carefully looked through the financials and having considered the provisions of the Legal Profession Act (LPA) 1976 namely S.73 (i), (ii) and (iv), the Selangor Bar has decided to reduce the current total subscription of RM260 to RM210. The said reduction is only applicable for the year 2020 ONLY. For those who have already paid their subscription the Selangor Bar will refund the excess amount once the Movement Control Order is lifted.

The reduction of RM50 though sounds like a very small amount but if accumulated, it’s a very substantial amount which will affect the income generation of the Selangor Bar. The Selangor Bar will embark on cost-cutting measures and income generation to cushion the shortfall and to strengthen its financial standing.

Thank you.
