GST on more than 60 food items from July 1
These include certain seafood, vegetables, fruits, tea, coffee, spices and noodles, China Press reported yesterday.
Customs Department director-general Datuk Subromaniam Tholasy confirmed the report and said a full statement would be issued today.
“It’s only a few items not consumed by the masses,” he said.
The Government introduced GST in April 2015 in the form of a 6% tax on goods and services.
