Thanks for your reply.
Section 33 GSTA provides that every registered person who makes any taxable supply of goods or services in the course or furtherance of any business in Malaysia shall issue a tax invoice containing the prescribed particulars. Failure to issue a tax invoice is an offence.
Beginning 1st October 2015, the registered person excluding ‘retailers’ must use a computer generated invoice or pre-printed invoice which is GST compliant.
In the case of ‘retailers’, they must use a GST compliant point of sale (POS) system or a GST compliant cash register to issue GST tax invoices beginning 1st October 2015.
The ‘retailers’ in this item refers to the following categories of businesses –
(a) Hardware shop.
(b) Restaurant including coffee shop.
(c) Mini market, grocery and sundry shop.
(d) Book store.
(f) Places of entertainment.
