Over the last 6 months there have been numerous changes and updates to the GST Act, Regulations and Orders as well as the release of the first few Public Rulings on specific issues. Amendment to the legislation are primarily to enact/ gazette the changes proposed last year during Budget 2018. However, one very important /critical change that came as a surprise is the amendment of the GST-03 Return to require taxpayers to report other supplies such as out of scope and disregarded supplies effective January 2018. As such, understanding and choosing the tax codes correctly for supplies/ transactions made notwithstanding there is no GST is crucial as it now affects the reporting in the GST-03 Return. Pursuant to this change, a revised Accounting Software Guide has been issued by the Royal Malaysian Customs Department (“RMCD”). Apart from the above, there has also been important announcements from RMCD, updates to the Guides issued by RMCD and Relief by Minister of Finance under Section 56(3)(b) as well as matters discussed during the regular technical meeting between Customs and trade associations and professional bodies. The objective of this seminar is to provide a briefing and analysis over these recent changes and developments.
