GST in Malaysia


The Malaysian Prime Minister announced in the 2014 Budget that the Malaysian GST will be implemented on April 1, 2015, at the rate of 6%.  

Parliament has debated and approved the new tax.  The GST Act has been gazetted.  GST is set to be implemented come April 1, 2015. 

GST registrations was opened in June 2014.  and will close on Dec 31, 2014.     

GST will replace the existing Service Tax (6%) and the Sales Tax (10%) that is currently imposed on certain industries and business entities.  GST is a wider tax compared to any of the existing tax.

For the business owner, GST is not about the Cost.  The Goods and Services Tax is passed on down the supply chain, until it reaches the end consumer. 

For a business, GST is about  managing your cashflow. 

It is very important to track the GST paid (input tax) and GST collected (output tax) so that you will not run into a cashflow problem when you need to remit the net GST to the Government. 

As for the consumer, you need to practice prudent spending. 

P/s :  Take note that costs incurred to purchase accounting software and to attend trainings to get your business ready for GST implementation, will be eligible for double tax deduction. 

There is also a rebate given in the form of GST eVoucher of Rm 1,000.00 to subsidise the purchase or upgrade of GST approved accounting software.
