Additional 6% tax for Procuring Service from foreign providers

During the period 1stSeptember 2018 to 31stDecember 2018, Malaysian service providers were in a disadvantage as they had to charge 6% service tax to their customers on provision of taxable services. However, these customers would not incur any service tax if they had purchased the same service from a foreign provider.

Now foreign services are being charged under service tax on imported services.

Where if the customer is service tax registered, the service tax on imported services is to be accounted in the bimonthly service tax return. And if the customer is not service tax registered, the service tax on imported services is to be accounted for in a declaration which is required to be submitted by the end of the month which follows the month in which the service tax is due.

And the service tax on imported services is due at “the time when payment is made” or “the time when the invoice is received” or whichever is earlier between these two.

For example, ABC Sdn Bhd, a company with a 31stDecember year-end, acquires consultancy services from a foreign company. On 10thMarch 2019, ABC Sdn Bhd receives and invoice from the foreign company for RM100,000 in respect of the services in February. The invoice would be paid in full in July 2019.

The Service tax of RM6,000 (being^& of RM100,000) is due on 10thMarch 2019 (being the earlier of date of payment and receipt of invoice).

If ABC Sdn Bhd is service tax registered, the service tax of RM6,000 must be included in the service tax return for the taxable period March to April 2019, which is due by 31stMay 2019. Service tax mst be paid to Customs by 31stMay 2019 as well.

If ABC Sdn Bhd is not service tax registered, a special declaration must be submitted by 30thApril 2019(being the end of the month that follows 10thMarch). Service tax must be paid to Customs by 30thApril 2019 as well.
