GST to be set to 0% on June 1, no SST until later on – what are the implications for Malaysian car prices?
In Cars, Local News / By Jonathan Lee / 16 May 2018 8:31 pm / 47 comments

The application of the old sales tax (left) on a car,
versus the current goods and services tax (GST, right)
The ministry of finance has just announced that Malaysia’s goods and services tax (GST), currently set at six percent, will be zero-rated come June 1, in line with the new Pakatan Harapan government’s promise to abolish the tax within 100 days of it coming to power. This was first announced in the coalition’s manifesto for the 14th general election.

Unlike what was previously announced, this effective elimination of GST will not coincide with the introduction of a sales and service tax (SST), as outlined by Pakatan Harapan in its manifesto – instead, there will simply be no tax on goods and services until a new tax structure is announced later on. Items that have already been GST-exempt will remain as is.

UPDATE: MoF has confirmed on May 17 that SST will be back – full story here.

While the move will surely be well-received, it throws a huge curveball, especially when it comes to car prices. Automotive companies are still in the dark regarding the effects of abolishing GST in favour of SST, whether prices will go up or down – and they haven’t had a concrete answer for prospective customers.

As recently as Monday, Edaran Tan Chong Motor’s sales and marketing director Christopher Tan said that car prices might actually go up slightly if the previous 10% sales tax (which was superseded by GST) is reinstated without changes. This is due to previous experience with moving from the sales tax to GST, which saw prices go down across many brands.

Subaru and Nissan have already announced price protection schemes
to safeguard buyers against car price fluctuations
In fact, carmakers and distributors such as ETCM (Nissan) and Motor Image (Subaru) have already introduced price protection schemes that would maintain prices for a limited time should they go up post-SST, and refund buyers in the form of service vouchers should the opposite happen.

With the abolishment of GST effectively brought forward, these companies will likely have to do these adjustments in two steps – refunding buyers who booked before June, then maintaining the pre-SST prices from then on out. That is if SST is implemented within the eligibility period of the respective schemes, which for Motor Image is until August 18 – the end of the new government’s first 100 days.

UPDATE: Story has been edited and includes the general scope of changes that will come about with the switch to 0% GST.

Whatever it is, car prices should go down on June 1 as GST is reduced to 0%, but by how much? An industry source told us earlier that buyers might not see current selling prices being exactly six percent cheaper for all brands immediately, as carmakers have paid GST all along the production and distribution process, and the tax isn’t just charged to the customer in one lump sum.

Nonetheless, the input tax that has been paid along the chain for existing inventory by the manufacturer and distributor can be claimed back from the government, and in a relatively short period at that. Thus, within a quick time frame, buyers should expect to see selling prices exactly – or close to – as that listed currently in a price list before GST is imposed.

In fact, for a short period, consumers could well be looking at a vehicle purchase with no GST and SST imposed, that is until the latter comes into effect. When SST will be reintroduced remains to be seen.

In any case, carmakers are already in the midst of calculating the revised prices without GST, and we will share them with you once they are announced, along with more details from the government as and when we get them. In the meantime, you can read in further detail on how GST affects the selling price of a car here.

New Government New Hope for 30% on May 17, 2018 at 8:31 am
Now it is not a good time to buy a car. The GST and SST are uncertain times.

But forget this GST and SST which will be sorted in June. More importantly, one of Pakatan’s manifestos is to reduce car prices by 30%.

You see, before BN made this promise of reducing car prices by 30% (which they never honoured), Pakatan, through their campaign “Turunkan Harga Kereta” also made this promise before BN did. This is why BN copied Pakatan’s promise to reduce car prices.

Remember the campaign “Turunkan Harga Kereta” which we all put yellow stickers behind our cars? I think the campaign was strongly supported by Rafizi also.

So, these are uncertain times. Pakatan Government will reduce car prices by 30% and honour their campaign promises.

So, these are uncertain times. Even after June, if you buy a car, the same car might be 30% less later in this year.

You buy RM100k now, later in the year, when the same brand new car is sold for RM70k, you will cry like a newborn baby with his pampers on

Chris’ comments came before this latest announcement, when it was still assumed that SST would directly and immediately replace GST. Again, we’d like to point out that the prices of many cars actually came down when the sales tax was replaced by GST three years ago, so his point remains valid, and we still don’t know if car prices will be cheaper or more expensive than GST-era prices when SST does come into effect.

If new car price drop, trade in value will also drop as well. Hence buyers with trade-ins may not enjoy the full effect of no GST. The only one that benefits most are first time buyer.

At this moment, car sales will be down till June. May sales is gone, salesman will eat grass this month. Stock value of car dealers plummets immediately unless there is more clarity to claim GST for stocks which already paid.

But biggest loser are usedcar dealers. Pity them have to suffer heavy losses on their existing stocks.

New and usedcar market are highly corelated.

So it will be critical to see how great is the impact to the usedcar market and how long market prices will stabilize.

Car buyers, esp for usedcar, may also find it more difficult to get bank loan as Banks will be more cautious in lending in this period of price incertainty.

So my humble advice to car buyers are:
A) consider yourself lucky if u can find a buyer for your trade-ins, but be prepared to accept a much lower price compare to before;

B) try get apply a bank loan first

Happy shopping!!

Dear Editor, the GST that a company needs to pay to government is (Output tax-input tax), if a company with high purchase and low sales, the GST collected via sales might be less than the GST they paid via buying inventory/stock, thus in that month the tax they need to pay to government is in negative value-> meaning that government needs to pay back the GST to that company which the company has spend during buy inventory/stock, thus it is noncent saying the company has paid for inventory and cannot reduce the price directly 6%. So whatever we need to pay to buy car is just the price before GST as of now, as simple as that. Pls get the fact right

Wp on May 16, 2018 at 10:59 pm
Ditto and absolutely factual. If on 1 June the car prices did not effectively reduce by the 6% gst then it just means the dealer is profiteering from the buyer. On the other hand, car companies can still profiteer by reducing the discounts/rebates post-1 June. So buyers, please beware and do comparison of net price today versus post-1 June, taking into account rebates as well.

This calculation is incorrect. The company has to pay GST at every level from supplier’s profits, contract assembling profits to transportation of vehicles nationwide. If the GST is removed, the company would have saved all these cost & therefore can passed it on to consumers through lower govt approved priced. The govt approved price is based on percent of tax + proposed price submitted by the company.

Only new car sales have same price tag all across the country. How about other goods like car spareparts and accessories. I remember and have seen one sparespart i was eyeing to buy a few weeks before gst was priced around rm100 from a seller, but after weeks 6% gst implemented that particuar sparepart price was tagged nearly rm250. The seller simply said the price increased was due to 6% gst. All sellers now give reason on 6% gst to allow them make multiple % huge profits. Now let’s see if the price could reduce back to rm100 after 0% gst. Guess what it will be!

Logically, it doesn’t make any sense to remove the GST and replace with Sales Tax that is higher. Either GST or Sales Tax, the tax collection goes to the government. Why should the Manufacturer/Dealer be worried on how to re-pricing their car? They only need to continue selling base on the approved selling pricing plus their margin.

Only 19 million out of 28 million vehicle owners pay road tax and renew insurance every year – JPJ
In Cars, Local News / By Anthony Lim / 15 May 2018 10:45 am / 39 comments

There are more than 28 million vehicles registered with the Road Transport Department (JPJ) across the country, but the department says that less than 70% of these are fully road legal, Bernama reports.

According to deputy director general of planning/operations Datuk Wan Ahmad Uzir Wan Sulaiman, out of the total, only 19 million vehicle owners have been actively renewing their road tax and vehicle insurance every year. “The rest who own vehicles do not renew their road tax and vehicle insurance,” he said

He said that the department had in March last year attempted to get vehicle owners to renew their insurance and road tax with an ‘offer’ that allowed defaulters whose road tax expiry was not more than three years to go through the normal process.

The exercise – which has received the support and cooperation from insurance companies – is apparently on again and runs until June 30. The department said that vehicle renewals can be made at any state JPJ office.

Don’t worry. Tun will clean up all the duit kopi. Why this is the case is very simple. There were so many duit kopi takers amongst the PDRM and JPJ. They catch these no road tax offenders, and then let go the offenders after duit kopi is given. This is why the number has balooned up so much over the years.

This is why also there are officially 3 million motorist in Malaysia that have no lesen. Can you imagine, out of 10 million motorist, 1 in every 3 vehicles you see on the road has no lesen? 20 years ago, it was only few thousands without lesen. But now, officially, 3 million. Unofficially, you can double that!

This is why many accidents happen. Cause of duit kopi.

But all this will come to an end with a now clean Government and no cybertroopers.

Road tax is not the main reason. You can’t get road tax renewed unless you have a valid insurance, and these people can’t afford to pay the insurance premium. Seen many cases like this, even one year old cars. Some people bought their cars thinking they need to worry about monthly instalments and fuel only. When their cars’ birthday is nearing, they starting to scratch head thinking how to come up with money for insurance and road tax.

True dat bro. Everyone else is except me mentality. They seek for change but forgotten to change themselves 1st. In the end, nothing changes except their disappointment increases.

This is not surprising. Malaysia’s roadtax scheme is completely outdated and does not make sense anymore in this day and age. Other countries have no such nonsense of paying RM2-3k for roadtax. The new BMW 7 series costs more than RM600k but only pays for a 2.0 litre roadtax (about RM300), the same as an old Toyota Camry 2.0

With the new change in government, hopefully they will examine the linear roadtax scheme where all cars are charged a standard amount, vary the insurance and tailor it according to driver age, history of accidents, type of car etc.

Roadtax. Does good looking person need to be charged more to a toilet compare to a poor one? Do we need to show our bankbook to restaurant and being charged more for the same nasi lemak because we r richer than other customers.? If no, why should a bmw owner need to be charged more for using the same road with the same displacement and utilised about the same space as other car? Stop discriminating based on whatever reasons just because u cant afford luxury item. I believe when u does afford it, u ll tell otherwise. Typical human mind. However, i do agree with insurance charge based on risk calculation. But remember, hate the rich more and god will avoid u to become the rich. Thats fair enough. Think again.

Roadtax should be charged based on CO2 emission as well as vehicle weight as heavy vehicles tend to damage the road more.

Most of the 9 million is gone, only available in the system as the owners scrap without bothering to do the paperwork.

1. people can’t afford the insurance + road tax costs
2. owners are trying to cheat their way out of paying

Can’t help those in the first category, but not surprised by the second category. I find that a larger proportion of the second category worrying. These are the people bringing up their children and teaching them their practices.
