As you’re probably aware, the new Malaysian Government has announced that it is zero-rising the unpopular goods and services tax (GST) starting 1 June 2018. The Pakatan Harapan government has pledged to abolish GST within 100 days of the coalition coming into power, as promised in its 14th Malaysian General Election manifesto.
[UPDATED] Full list of Huawei devices eligible for six percent cash back added.
Zero-rating the current six percent rate is a quick fix, but a much welcome one, as the tax has been blamed for the people’s rising living costs since it was implemented in 2015. The previous government earned close to MYR44 billion in revenue from GST last year.
With the zero-rating imminent, Malaysians are expecting prices of goods to drop – whether it is for groceries, dining out, entertainment or even for gadgets.
Not wasting any time, Huawei is throwing in a deal for Malaysian consumers before the zero-rising of GST kicks off in two week’s time.
Why wait, the tech giant asks.
From 18-31 May 2018, Huawei is offering immediate six percent cash back for purchases of selected devices.
It has not released details of which devices are on offer.
