M'sians To Pay 10% LVG Tax For Online Orders Under RM500

09-Jan-2023

Beginning in April, the Malaysian government will begin collecting a new sales tax (low-value goods), increasing Malaysian consumers' costs by 10% whenever they purchase items imported from abroad (that are priced less than RM500).


As a result, taxes will be added to any purchases you make on online stores like Taobao and Amazon.

However, this tax will not apply to the delivery charges and insurance costs incurred while delivering the goods to Malaysia from abroad.

Additionally, tobacco items, smoking pipes (including pipe bowls), electronic cigarettes and similar personal electric vaporizing devices, non-nicotine liquid or gel preparations used for smoking via e-cigarettes or vaping devices, and alcoholic beverages are excluded from the new sales tax.


To assist in collecting the new tax, sellers must register with Customs.
