GST is a new tax system gazetted on 19 June 2014 with the standard rate fixed at 6%. It is a consumption based tax imposed on the sale of goods and services, which is to replace the existing Sales Tax (10%) and Service Tax (6%). In GST, a product or service is either standard-rated or zero-rated; and exempt and out of scope supplies are not taxable. (For list of exempted supplies, kindly visit the eFederal Gazette website at <a href="https://www.federalgazette.agc.gov.my"> www.federalgazette.agc.gov.my</a>). Information communications technology (ICT) industry has been identified as an item in the standard-rated category.</p> <p> Packet One Networks (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, P1, recognized as a service provider under the telecommunications and ICT industry, had officially registered with the Royal Customs Malaysian Department with GST registration number of <b><i>000399921152</b></i>. There was zero tax levied on P1 s offerings before GST and hence, there will be an additional charge of 6% tax on all taxable goods and services supplied by P1 effective 1st April 2015. </p> <p> For a better understanding on how GST is imposed on P1 services, kindly visit the Frequently Asked Questions in <a href="https://www.p1.com.my">www.p1.com.my</a>.</p> <p> Thank you.</p> </td> </tr> <td align="left" valign="top"> <img src="../images/press_releases/blank20px.gif" width="580" height="20" /> </td> </tr> <tr> <td align="left" valign="top"> <img src="../images/press_releases/line1.gif" width="580" height="9" /> </td> </tr> <tr> <td align="left" valign="top"> <img src="../images/press_releases/blank20px.gif" width="580" height="20" /> </td> </tr> <tr> <td align="left" valign="top" class="bodycopy"> <strong>For media inquiries, please contact:</strong><br /> <br /> Hilda Juliana Binti Shamsul Bahri, Public Relations<br /> Phone: +603 74508374<br /> Email: <a href="mailto:hilda.shamsul@packet-1.com" target="_blank">hilda.shamsul@packet-1.com</a> </td> </tr> <tr> <td align="left" valign="top"> <img src="../images/press_releases/blank40px.gif" width="580" height="40" /> </td> </tr> </table> </td> <td width="60"> &nbsp; </td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> </table> <table id="bottom message" cellpadding="10" cellspacing="0" width="700" align="center"> <tr> <td align="center"> <p class="class-top-message"> Copyright 2015.
