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

Are you ready for Sales and Services Tax?

One of the most high profile plege of "10 Promises in the First 100 days" by new Pakatan Harapan government's is to abolish the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and to be replaced by Sales and Services Tax (SST).

The laws that governed the SST up to 31st March 2015 which are the Sales Tax Act 1972 and the Service Act 1975, were REPEALED when GST was introduced. 

Similarly from GST to SST is NOT something that can be done overnight. 

Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has announced that the First Parliament Meeting of the 14th Dewan Rakyat will commence on 16th of July and sit for 20 days.

Dr. Mahathir said  Goods and Services Tax (GST) will be abolished as promised and will introduce Sales and Services Tax.

There are various speculation amongst the professionals. Will Sales Tax only covers manufacturers? or will it extend further to other industries?

What other service industries may fall under this new Services Tax regime?

During the transition from GST to SST, how will that affect the liabilities that yet to be settled. Will this cause more time and cost for business as when the GST was implemented in 2015?
