GST.....the final word.
seriously, none of us thinks the govt has thoroughly thought & worked out the breathe and depth of the GST.
how is it they were flip-flopping over the GST for pre-paid top-up cards?
is healthcare exempted or not? if not, why announce otherwise?
why the need now to consider to increase the number of medicines to be exempt or zero-rated?
be assured the saga will not end with this recent confusion.
how is it that they didn't learn from countries that implemented GST ages ago & avoided their mistakes?
i know for sure GST, as a consumption tax, is a fairer form of tax collection, but perhaps the timing is premature, or that it should have started at a lower level, say 2-3% first.
& there should be no exemption nor exception. tax everything but at an affordable & less painful bracket first.
while the government is whipping up confusion at every turn of the implementation process, the rakyat is suffering.
