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.
