Reintroduction of SST

Sales and service tax

 The reintroduction of the Sales and Services Tax (SST) will see its rate set at 10% for sales and 6% for services. This was announced by Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng on 16 July 2018, who informed that the Bill on SST will be passed in Parliament sometime in August.

The sales tax is based on the manufacturing cost or import cost, while the service tax could cover a wider range of services, therefore a higher price or charges for services rendered on the whole.

The services provider is liable to be registered under the Service Tax Act 2018 when the value of taxable services provided for a period of 12 months that exceeds a threshold of RM500,000. The SST registration threshold is RM1,500,000 for Operator of restaurant, bar, snack-bar, canteen, coffee house or any place which provides food and drinks.
