Somebody asked me a question about implementation of the new 6% service tax - how it affects claims on consultant fees.  He made a fees claim in April 2011 for services rendered last year which he didnt claim until last month.  The client commented back that the correct service tax to apply is still 5% instead of 6%.  Who is right / wrong ?

Here's a link with a 13-pages pdf file Guideline from the Royal Malaysian Customs Department.  For more information, click this Implementation Guideline

Saya setuju dengan client tu; 6% service tax hanya bagi perkhidmatan yang diberi mulai 2011 sahaja. Katakan item preparation for document contract dibuat tahun lepas.Tapi di claim tahun ni..still 5% service tax.

Thanks for your input and welcome !

En Nizam is working for the government and is very very well versed with government procedures and technical matters !  We worked together when doing the INTAN project few years ago.
