In mid-May, AMCHAM requested all members to send us your outstanding questions relating to the zero-rating of Malaysia's GST regime and planned transition to an SST regime. We received a large volume of queries, and incorporated your questions into our submission to Royal Malaysian Customs.

Customs has since issued a detailed set of FAQs in relation to the transition period out of the GST regime, providing clear guidance on how companies should be interpreting tax rules across a range of scenarios in order to ensure compliance during this time. The latest FAQs are available here.

To assist members in understanding the guidance provided by Customs, AMCHAM is delighted to welcome three senior tax experts from Deloitte, EY, and PwC to explain the content of these FAQs and how they relate to your business specifically, on Wednesday, 4 July 2018 from 9.00 a.m. to 10.30 a.m. at the AMCHAM Executive Office.

The session will begin with explanations of a number of topics for which we know that multiple members need clarification, and we will then open the floor to all attendees for further questions.

Don't miss this opportunity to benefit from the expertise within our membership and to make sure that you have a full understanding of the latest state of play in Malaysia's shifting tax landscape!

Light refreshments and coffee/tea will be provided. For more information, please contact Ms. Elyna Ngu at elyna@amcham.com.my
