The new Pakatan Harapan government announced that the GST will be zero-rated starting 1 June 2018. It’s a fast track to eventually abolishing the tax, a pledge the ruling government made as part of its manifesto for the 14th Malaysian General Election.
The tax has been blamed for rising living costs since its was introduced in 2015. The previous government raked in nearly MYR44 billion in GST revenue last year.
The new government is expected to reintroduce the sales and services tax (SST) soon, although no rate has been revealed.
