Too many exemptions led to GST confusion
As published in The Malaysian Insider, 19 May 2015
Tax experts have suggested that the placing of several items under the zero-rated and exempt-supply list to help the poor is a reason for hiccups seen in the tax's implementation since 1 April, along with the decision for the tax to not cover more goods and services.
Dr Veerinderjeet Singh of Taxand Malaysia agreed, saying that Malaysia had chosen to implement a complicated version of the GST.
