Goods and Services Tax (GST) "GST in Healthcare Services Sector"

With effect from 1 April 2015, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) will be enforced in Malaysia at the rate of 6%. GST is a broad based consumption tax covering all sectors of the economy i.e all Malaysian-made goods and services, including imports, except specific goods and services which are categorized under zero rated supply, and exempt supply orders, as determined by the Minister of Finance and published in the Gazette. Obviously, with the implementation of GST, many sectors such as construction, property developers, manufacturing, services; big-sized corporations as well as SMEs will be affected.

As GST is a new subject, companies and organisations should be aware and acquainted with the laws and rules on GST. Professionals, tax personnel and tax agents for instance, need not only the knowledge but the mastering of GST in order to effectively service their clients and employers.

Having less than a year to April 2015, let’s get your company prepared in managing the transition for GST and equip your personnel with appropriate GST knowledge to avoid costly penalties.
