On September 1st 2018, a new tax regime was introduced in Malaysia: the Sales and Services Tax (SST) was reintroduced to replace the unpopular Goods and Services Tax (GST). Under the new SST, goods are taxed between 5 to 10 percent and services at 6 percent. The GST, which covered a broader range of items and services compared with the SST, was introduced on April 1st 2015 and was set at 6 percent as part of the Government’s tax reform program to enhance the capability, effectiveness and transparency of tax administration and management. In Malaysia, the sales tax rate is a tax charged to consumers based on the purchase price of certain goods and services. The benchmark we use for the sales tax rate refers to the highest rate. Revenues from the Sales Tax Rate are an important source of income for the government of Malaysia.
