No GST on Malaysia traffic summons (Refer to astro news)

KUALA LUMPUR: The Royal Malaysian Police (RMP) does not impose the Goods and Services Tax (GST) on the compound of traffic summons.

Instead, the GST will be charged on the service charge imposed by service providers of online summons payment, according to a RMP statement yesterday.

The public can choose to make payments at the traffic police counters to avoid the service charge and GST by online service providers.

The GST was implemented in Malaysia on April 1 with a six percent rate to replace the 10 percent Sales and Service Tax (SST).

The GST is one of the measures taken by the government to enhance the country's financial system by seeking new sources of revenue as well as to improve the efficiency of tax collection.

Some Little Known Facts On Malaysian Vehicle Registration Plates (Refer to Malaysian Digest)

In Malaysia, the Malaysian Road Transport Department(JPJ) regulates the issuing of vehicle registration plates. While many of us know the prefixes for our own state but not many people can readily identify the whole list of prefixes available in Malaysia when we consider the other states, as well as East Malaysia, military, taxi, airport limousines and royalty prefixes
For the registration plates of Peninsular Malaysia, the algorithm started with a state prefix and a number sequence (from 1 to 9999).
However, due to their similarities with the numbers 1 and 0, the letters I and O are excluded from the alphabetical sequences for Malaysian vehicle plates. Furthermore, there will be no leading zeroes in the number sequence.
Following are the prefixes for vehicle plates of different states, districts and categories:

Peninsular Malaysia
A – Perak
B – Selangor
C – Pahang
D – Kelantan
J – Johor
K – Kedah
M – Melaka
N – Negeri Sembilan
P – Penang
R – Perlis
T – Terengganu
W – Kuala Lumpur
Putrajaya – Putrajaya
KV – Pulau Langkawi
Z – Army

SA, SAA-SAB – West Coast
SB – Beaufort
SD – Lahad Datu
SK – Sabah Government
SL – Labuan
SS – Sandakan
ST – Tawau
SU – Keningau

Meanwhile, the current alphabets for most Sarawak’s districts start with the constant Q prefix, followed by the division prefix and the number sequence.
QA and QK: Kuching
QB: Sri Aman
QC: Kota Samarahan
QL: Limbang
QM: Miri
QP: Kapit
QR: Sarikei
QS: Sibu
QT: Bintulu
QSG: Government of Sarawak

Taxi license plates follow a H prefix in Malaysia which means ‘hire’ and have inverted colors with black letters and white background for distinction purposes.
HA – Perak
HB – Selangor
HC – Pahang
HE – Sabah
HJ – Johor
HK – Kedah
HL – Labuan
HM – Melaka
HN – Negeri Sembilan
HP – Penang
HQ – Sarawak
HR – Perlis
HS – Sabah
HT – Terengganu
HW – Kuala Lumpur
Following the opening of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), LIMO****W or LIMO***B were introduced for KLIA limousines. For example, LIMO 1130 W.

In Malaysia, license plates numbers with the Z prefix are reserved for military.  Z is the constant prefix for all Malaysian Armed Forces vehicles while B is the branch prefix. For example D is for Malaysian Army and U is for royal Malaysian Air Force.
ZA to ZD – The Malaysian Army
ZL – Royal Malaysian Navy
ZU – Royal Malaysian Air Force
JMF – The Royal Johor Military Force

Royal Vehicle  
The Sultans of Malaysia, Rulers of States and their immediate royalties use unique registration plates. Most of these official license plates have a yellow background and bear the royal crest of the owner.
