6% service tax on prepaid reloads

Those buying prepaid reloads and prepaid starter/SIM packs will be charged a 6% service tax from Sept 15.

With the charging of the 6% service tax on prepaid services, a customer who purchases a RM10 prepaid reload will need to pay RM10.60, the 60 sen being the service tax.

Prepaid customers would be informed via SMS beginning Thursday about the new service tax, the Malaysian telco industry said in a joint statement here.
