SST Mechanism – Implementation Framework & Addressing Issues

Expert Speaker Yee Hun Leek

MYR901.00 (No SST)



Sales Tax Act 2018 and Service Tax Act 2018 have finally replaced the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Act 2014 with effect from 1st September 2018. The new Sales and Services Tax (SST) have adopted the previous SST model with some enhancements and incorporated some of the concepts and mechanism from the GST regime.

With the short transition period from GST to SST, businesses have to be sufficiently prepared for the impact of GST abolishment and SST implementation due to the major and strategic changes in the business operations of companies. The complexities of the scope and charge of SST and treatments of SST, with limited guides from the Royal Malaysian Customs Department (RMCD), have resulted in the uncertainties in the business environment. In addition, businesses are facing the risk of non-compliance of SST and heavy penalties could be imposed by RMCD for incorrect returns.

This one-day workshop will highlight the SST mechanism and implementation framework for the new SST model. Learn how to address critical issues faced by businesses, mitigate the risk of non-compliance and ensure a smooth transition to SST.
