Malaysia GST Calculator
Don’t be confounded by the Goods and Services Tax (GST). Let the apps do the math. There is a variety of apps, both paid and free, that offer services such as GST calculation, list of taxed items and GST facts.
They provide alerts on the latest workshops and announcements that are specific for Malaysians.
Some apps, such as Malaysia GST Calculator (ADV) offers GST calculations. For the free basic version, the app offers additional GST calculations for imports, mixed supplies, secondhand goods and capital goods adjustment for mixed supplies, on top of basic GST calculation.
The Malaysia GST Calculator app also offers additional features in the paid version of the app, which includes flat rate scheme vs standard GST rate calculation and a GST registered vs non-GST registered calculation. The UHY Malaysia GST app, on the other hand, gives you “quick and easy access to key Malaysian GST information”.
“With the latest information and dates derived from the Customs Department website, you will have your own hub of GST knowledge while you are on the move,” described the app developer.
The app also includes a GST calculator and a downloadable newsletter that gives users regular updates on the latest GST legislation.
According to Google Play, both of the apps mentioned above received 1,000 to 5,000 installs.
Malaysians are also able to calculate the GST value of goods for free by using the GST calculator that is available on the Customs Department website.
When contacted, a Customs officer said the department had not yet developed a GST mobile app but might do so in the future.
