Time to take full advantage of the 0% GST, peeps!
It has been just over a month since Tun Dr. Mahathir was sworn in as Malaysia’s Prime Minister and one of his promises was to reduce our 6% GST and effective 1st June 2018, all stores (affected by GST) had slashed down their prices. Amagad think of all the bargains!
However, there have been reports that SST (Sales and Services Tax) will most likely be introduced in September 2018. According to the Star, Finance Minister, Lim Guan Eng has mentioned that replacing the Goods and Services Tax (GST) with the Sales and Services Tax (SST) will return RM17bil to Malaysians, even as he announced a slew of cost of living measures.
So if you’re like us and you’ve got about a bajillion things on your wish list then now is the best time to start ‘adding to cart’. Here are some things we’ve been eyeing:
Forking out a couple of thousand ringgit is no joke. But sometimes you just need a new phone or laptop because your old one is quite literally falling apart in your hands. Now is as good as a time to get one with the reduced prices. It is definitely more worth it now as the difference in price is quite significant. Especially if you’re planning on getting a new set of wheels.
