帐单上的tax amount

Shopping 前                                                                 

星期六,约了朋友一起吃喝玩乐。

朋友一上车,就为了这报道-首相署部长暗示执行消费税落实国阵承诺 ,而一见到歪歪就呱呱吵。。。

歪歪告诉朋友:“你知道什么叫做肉在砧板上吗?”

我们就是那个任宰割的肉,吵就能左右政府的决定?

如果政府真的决定实行,而我们又依然故我的爽爽就去shopping, 衣柜和鞋柜里永远都觉得不够,而买呀买~ 继续促进经济,政府还会理我们吵?

大马的人民都很乖的咯!总是这边吵吵下,那边又会继续去消费。

现在大选也过了,权力已经回到政府的手上,我们还能怎么样?

未来的五年内,继续磨练理财投资功夫,让自己的钱滚钱能力,超越消费税!


 Shopping 后                                    

shopping回来后,歪歪整理购物品时,才懂得检查单据。

单据竟然出现 tax amount RM0.00。


歪歪拿着单据问爱人,单据里的tax amount,是不是就为了政府说的消费税, 而准备的?

而当政府开始实行消费税,这个tax amount就会出现数额,不再是RM0.00。

那么,以后是不是连买内衣裤也要给tax?( 以上的单据是由一家连锁内衣店发出的)

如果有一天,当我们购买内衣裤,如同吃快餐,消费RM100,还有额外多被charges一个tax,难道要为此而减少买吗?

政府说的消费税-Goods and Services Tax-GST,到底是什么东西?

 消费税 -Goods and Services Tax                                                   

以下资料取自- MOF 

Is GST a new consumption tax? 

GST is a consumption tax based on the value-added concept. GST is imposed on goods and services at every production and distribution stage in the supply chain including importation of goods and services. 


Why the sales tax and service tax (SST) need to be replaced with GST? 

GST is a more comprehensive, effective, transparent, and business friendly tax system. GST can overcome the various weaknesses inherent in the present consumption tax system. The inherent weaknesses under the present tax system are the cascading tax, double tax and pyramiding tax, tax erosion and leakages through transfer pricing and other means. Besides that, GST is expected to increase tax compliance and is easier to administer in view of its self policing method. Besides that, the businesses are required only to submit simplified tax returns based on prescribed formats. All records and documents relating to the relevant transaction are required to be kept in the business premises for audit by the GST auditor.


Is it true that those earning below RM3,000 per month who are not liable to pay income tax will now have to pay tax under GST?


This perception is not correct as the scope of charge for both types of tax is vastly different. The scope of charge for income tax is based on income received by an individual whilst the imposition of GST is based on the consumption of goods and services.

Presently, those not liable to income tax still pay sales tax and service tax on goods and services that they consume.

The issue is, most consumers are not aware that the tax element has been embedded in the price of goods and services sold by the retailers. As a matter of fact, the imposition of GST will not make any difference to the tax burden of those earning below RM3,000 monthly as they would have paid tax on the consumption of those goods and services.

月入少于RM3000,不用交个人所得税的人士,还是需要给GST。不过,很多商家出售的货品或服务价格,已经包括tax在内,只是消费者没有察觉)

*虽然如此,如果一件衣服标价RM99,已经包括消费税。那么,我们看到标价RM99,觉得值得买而买,那么,这个歪歪是可以接受的。

而当实行消费税后,是否继续标价RM99,我们只要给RM99,或是RM99+tax? 

还是物品价格会如政府说的,随着实行消费税,自动降价。原本卖RM99,变成RM90,然后加tax?


Who will collect GST and remit to the government? 

GST can only be collected by persons who are registered under GST and the tax shall be remitted to the government within the stipulated period.

How does GST work? 

GST is charged and collected on all taxable goods and services produced in the country including imports.

Only businesses registered under GST can charge and collect GST. GST collected on output must be remitted to the government. However, businesses are allowed to claim the input tax credit through the following mechanism and method:-

 i. GST collected on output (output tax) is deducted against the GST paid on input (input tax).
 ii. If there is excess, the amount shall be remitted to the government within the stipulated period.
iii. If there is deficit, businesses can claim for refund from the government.

Do all businesses need to be registered under GST? 

Only businesses with annual sales turnover of RM500,000 and above are liable to be registered under GST.

Businesses having an annual sales turnover of less than this amount are not liable to be registered under the GST. However, such businesses can apply for voluntary registration.


看了以上的解释,所谓的消费税,就是任何的物品与服务,不管是本地制作,或是入口的,只要该公司的生意额超过政府规定的数额,就会向顾客征收消费税,而该消费税是交给政府的。

另一篇报道;

南洋商报 - 蔡兆源: 国会未通过 消费税年内不可能落实


如果真的避不了               

现在的连锁餐馆都是用税前的价格吸引消费者,餐牌列明的价格都是没有包括Goverment Services Tax(服务税)和Services charges服务费。

然后,等消费者付钱的时候,才在帐单上计算GST和服务费。

如果真的要实行消费税,那么,就请政府规定商家们在销售物品或服务,所列明的价格表,必须是包含消费税的价格才能让消费人士在购买时,明确的知道到底要给的是多少钱。

然后,我们才能判断到底该物品或服务,值不值得自己花该数额的钱。

    2. 当驾车走在大马凹凸不平,左一个洞,右一个洞的马路上。

      当下大雨,大路总是就这边积水,那边积水。。

      当打算搭公车出外,才发现要转几轮车,还要花好上几个小时。。。

      当水供依然需要透过过滤器,才敢喝。。。。

      当以上的毛病,十年如一日都改不了。。。

      这样的GST,就算降低所得税,另一方面却是变相让更多的人在中税。

      大马要向先进国学习???我真的接受不到咯。。。
