Course Introduction ›

In May 2018, Ministry of Finance Malaysia announced that Goods and Services Tax (GST) would be abolished and replaced by a reintroduced Sales and Services Tax (SST). Although no firm date has been set, Ministry of Finance has stated that SST will be implemented in September 2018. The first step of the transition began on 1 June 2018, when GST was adjusted from 6% to a 0% rate across Malaysia. In fact, during the transition period, GST still applies across Malaysia under existing regulations - but at a rate of 0%. Obviously, Business should take steps, during this transitional period to prepare for the implementation of SST.
