SST 2018 : Practical & Effective Implementation of Sales and Services Tax



Sales and Services Tax (SST) will take off on 1 September 2018, Businesses,
Entrepreneurs, Professionals and Management Only LEFT with approximately
ONE Month to Learn & Implement SST. This is an uphill task !



As the SST was be tabled in the Parliamentary sitting on 31 July 2018, Sales Tax Bill 2018 & Service Tax Bill 2018 will be an enhanced version of the old Sales Tax Act 1972 & Service Tax Act 1975 respectively. As such we are equally excited to see what will be the final Tax Rate, Taxable Period, scope of coverage and the Tax Compliance needed. While the SST tax rate may varies depending on industries. However it shall still remain a business cost to company.


Malaysia’s OLD SST model is nearly 50 years old. It is important to note that the SST
collection in 2014 was RM17 billion; while the targeted collection from NEW SST is
RM 30 billion. With the NEW SST being way higher than the OLD SST, NEW SST
model is expected to have wider scope and upgraded to be more relevant to
Malaysia’s current economic situation. It is believed to be a modernised reporting
system too.
