“Gua Suka Tipu”
“Gila Shopping Time”
There are a lots of funny quotes over the internet. If you ask me, I will say:
GST is like teenage sex: everyone talks about it nobody really knows how to deal with it, everyone thinks everyone else is doing it, so everyone claims they are doing it……
In fact, as Malaysian we understand GST = Goods and Services Tax. But how much we understand about the newly implemented policy?
I hope the following links will ease your headache:
- http://www.kpdnkk.gov.my/kpdnkkv3/index.php?lang=en (Official Portal of Ministry of Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism)
- http://gst.customs.gov.my/en/Pages/default.aspx (Official Website of Malaysia Goods & Services Tax (GST), Royal Malaysian Customs Department)
To be more specified, these are the files that you should keep in your smartphone, the price list:
- http://gst.customs.gov.my/en/cp/SiteAssets/GST%20List%20of%20Sundry%20Goods%20(15%20JAN%202015).pdf (List of taxable goods and non taxable goods)
- http://gst.customs.gov.my/en/cp/SiteAssets/106%20Questions%20Response%20by%20Customs.pdf (106 FAQ that customs responded)
Besides, another “good” effort from government is they came out Android App: MyKira GST. Yes, ONLY in Android App.
The “Fun” side is the app have more than 90% complain than compliment; I wouldn’t say citizen didn’t appreciate the effort, but …………… Well, to be fair, you shall try out yourself. But if you really ask me, I would say:
MyKira GST is like MyGila GST, not just I need to calculate the 6%, but I shall input SO MUCH INFORMATION in order to get signal whether the price is “reasonable” or not. Non IT geeks might spent more than 1 minute to check one good? Time Efficiency? “Gila” loh……
(to be update whenever I have more information)
