  4. Gift rule – as long as total gifts given (at one go or in a series or succession) to a person in the same year amounted to more than RM500, GST is payable on the total gift amounts.

Customs issued another Panel Decision yesterday. You may download the file (and all previous Panel Decisions) directly from GST Customs portal: http://gst.customs.gov.my/en/rg/Pages/rg_fai.aspx

Panel Decision 1/2015: the 5 issues discussed are:

  1. Last day to issue invoice under the Service Tax or Sales Tax
    - for sale of taxable goods or rendering of taxable services on the last taxable period before 01/04/15 is 28/04/15

  2. Goods received free and given away free
    - No need to account for GST when a taxable person gives away free goods (goods that the taxable person received free of charge)

  3. Price display
    Price displayed, advertised, published or quoted may be exclusive of GST but the word “goods or services are subject to GST 6% and the price payable is exclusive of GST“ must be stated
    - if the supply is made only to another registered person, or
    - during transitional period for only 14 days (01/04/15 to 15/04/15) to facilitate businesses to complete the process of price labelling or tagging inclusive of GST

  4. Supply of SIM Card, prepaid or post-paid
    - supply of SIM card is a supply of right to use telecommunication services and it is a supply of services
    - supply of SIM card in a Designated Area (Labuan, Langkawi or Tioman) is subject to GST
    - supply of SIM card in a Designated Area (and in Malaysia as well) to a non-connected person for free of charge is not a supply and not subject to GST

  5. Approval for simplified tax invoice
    - DG has given his blanket approval to any registered person who makes a supply to end consumers (not businesses) to exclude the following particulars in their tax invoices:
    - the word “Tax Invoice”
    - name and address of the recipient
    - total amount payable exclusive of tax
    - all other particulars required in a full tax invoice are still applicable (please refer Para 15 of Customs’ Guide on Tax Invoice & Records Keeping)

I wish everyone a Happy & Prosperous Chinese New Year!
