The RMCD announcement states that the change is effective from the January 2018 taxable period. As such, businesses must be prepared to file information on all other supplies from the January 2018 GST return onwards. For those on a monthly taxable period, this means that the information for January 2018 GST return must be compiled and ready for submission before the filing dateline of 28 February 2018.
The announcement also provides some guidance on the definition of “Other Supplies”. In particular, it refers to all supplies that are not declared under Boxes 5, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 16, 17 and 18 of the GST-03 return. This includes disregarded and out of scope supplies.
Furthermore, the RMCD has also recently released a revised Guide on Accounting Software Enhancement Towards GST Compliance as at 5 February 2018 (“the Guide”).
This provides additional guidance on the tax codes mapped to Box 15. This is set out in the amended Appendix 4 (Mapping of GST Tax Codes with GST-03 Return) to include the following:
– OS (Supplies outside the scope of GST);
– GS (Disregarded supplies);
– OS-TXM (Supplies made outside of Malaysia which will be taxable if made in Malaysia);
– NTX (Supplies where no tax are chargeable); and
– SR-JWS (Supplies made by an approved jeweller per Section 73(2) of the GST Act 2014).
Taxpayers should immediately begin reconfiguring their systems in order to capture the data required to complete Box 15 for the January 2018 GST return and all future returns. Businesses should also consider if they will be able to comply with the above changes within the stipulated time frame and, if not, consider approaching the RMCD for an extension of time to comply.
