WHAT IS GST IN MALAYSIA?
Everyone must be asking and actually wondering what is GST? Goods and services tax (GST) or also known as VAT is a multi-stage consumption of tax. As announced by the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak, the implementation of GST in Malaysia will be effective on the 1st of April 2015. Businesses and consumers have been questioning on what is GST Malaysia and how it affects them this past year. After the announcement on 25th October 2013 for the GST implementation, the registration for businesses to register GST online started on October 2014 in order to allow businesses to make complete preparations.
The way GST Malaysia 2015 works in registered business is that it charges a 6% GST on their products on services. The existence of GST tax Malaysia is to replace the existing sales tax which has a lot of weaknesses resulting in government losing its revenue. By introducing goods and services tax Malaysia, those weaknesses could be overcome and increase the country’s economy. However, the Malaysia GST 2015 implementation will not bring a huge impact on the prices of goods. For this month, ZALORA is offering discount with the introduction of voucher code GSTDROP and as promised we will always price our fashion products competitively just to encourage shoppers to keep their lifestyle and shopping habits as they did before the introduction of GST.
