Last update: 01/06/2018

KUALA LUMPUR, June 1 (Bernama) --†Effective today, the†country's Islamic financial institutions have zero-rated the Goods and Services Tax (GST) on banking products and services, the Association of Islamic Banking and Financial Institutions Malaysia (AIBIM) said in a statement.

The zero-rated supply is in line with the announcement on May 16 by the Finance Ministry and Royal†Malaysian Customs Department to cancel the six per cent value-added tax.

"We are committed to a smooth†transition to ensure customers†continue enjoying a high level of service," AIBIM†said.

Should clients†require clarification, AIBIM recommends that they get in touch with their banks.†

Starting April the banks have imposed a 50 sen processing fee on top of the 15 sen stamp duty on each cheque. The fee also applies to those applying for a Bankerís Cheque, Bank Draft and Cashierís Order. Do you think this additional charge is justified?
