Perodua Prices Lower With SST Than with GST
In line with the government’s reintroduction of the Sales and Service Tax (SST) effective 1 September 2018, Perodua has released new prices for all its models, which are reduced by between 1-3% (for selected models) compared with Goods and Services Tax (GST)-era pricing.
“Based on the new tax structure, almost all Perodua models see price reductions compared to the GST price structure,” said Perodua Sales Sdn Bhd Managing Director Dato’ Dr Zahari Husin.
To recap, the government zeroed the GST rate (from 6%) on 1 June 2018, opening up a ‘tax holiday’ and a spike in vehicle demand that lasted three months. In July, the Finance Ministry announced that the SST, which was due to replace the GST, would be set at 10% for sales and 6% for services.
“We wish to thank all Malaysians, especially our 3.3 million valued customers who have chosen Perodua as their brand of choice. We will continue to offer the best value in the Malaysian market with our new prices,” said Dato’ Dr Zahari.
“On Perodua’s service and parts, we will continue to give competitive pricing to our customers. We truly appreciate the unwavering support the people have shown for our products and services, and will continue to improve ourselves for our customers.”
“Please visit any of our sales and service outlets nationwide and speak to our authorised sales and service advisors to learn more about our products and services,” said Dato’ Dr Zahari.
