The Sales and Services Tax (SST) has been implemented in Malaysia. The SST replaces the existing Goods and Services Tax (GST) and affects all domestic and import shipments.

The SST has two elements:

A Service Tax that is charged and levied on taxable services provided by any taxable person in Malaysia in the course and furtherance of business,

and a single stage Sales Tax levied on imported and locally manufactured goods, either at the time of importation or at the time the goods are sold or otherwise disposed of by the manufacturer.
