Celcom lauds Govt’s move to exempt SST on prepaid services

IA - TIME

As you may know, the Sales and Services Tax (SST) came into effect on 1 September. Telcos initially slapped on a 6 percent tax on prepaid services which irked Malaysian consumers. The Finance Ministry earlier today, consequently declared that all prepaid services will be exempted from SST.

Celcom, in an official statement, welcomes the government’s decision to exempt SST on prepaid services, which is effective 6 September 2018.

Mohamad Idham Nawawi, chief executive officer of Celcom Axiata Berhad said, “Celcom is committed to provide customers with affordable packages, upholding the government’s aspirations and initiatives in further developing the welfare of Malaysians through our nationwide network.”

For those who purchased prepaid plans from 1-5 September, Celcom is offering rebates in the form of free credit that can be used to make calls within the Celcom network.

The free credit is valid for 24 hours upon successful reload.
