Yes, like it or not, GST will be implemented next year.
Yes, be it you protest or support, the GST bill has been passed in the Parliament.
Yes, you may and can be angry because of GST. No doubt you can. It is your right, it is your feelings and emotions.
However, we as the people, the rakyat, has been said getting clever and cleverer.. yet, I think, by looking at how some answered about GST, I don’t think some are getting cleverer by moments.
My 0.5 cents advice? Try and get better understanding on GST or in full – GOODS AND SERVICE TAX (not government service tax!) be it you are for or against it.
Appended below and at the low end of this blog is Ernst & Young’s 2013 Worldwide VAT, GST and Sales Tax guide for those interested, wanted and know how to use it.
A little bit friendly reminder – please prove you are smart by looking it at all possible angles. Different country have different environment and challenges. Different countries have different rates and items being taxed, zero rated tax and non-taxable items.
Don’t be a blindspot!
