OBJECTIVE

The Finance Ministry has announced that all goods & services subjected to GST will be zero rated from 01.06.2018 and a new tax system called Sales & Service Tax (SST) will be implemented from 01.09.2018. It will probably adopt the previous Sales Tax Act 1972 and Service Tax Act 1975 with some variations.

 

The Sales & Service Tax Bill 2018 was tabled for first reading on 31.07.2018 together with the Sales and Service Tax (Repeal) Bill 2018. The SST Bill 2018 is expected to be debated and finalized before 01.09.2018. The Royal Malaysian Customs Department (RMCD) is expected to register automatically some 70,000 – 80,000 registrants who have been registered under the GST regime and will be informed by e-mail.

 

With the proposed SST 2.0 in mind this course will provide the participants the technical know-how for the implementation of the Sales & Service Tax before its commencement on 01.09.2018 and the type of businesses which are likely to be affected by its introduction.
