Why are Cars prices when bought in Labuan/ Langkawi varies so much when compared to other states?
If I'm in KK wanna buy car from Labuan, is it possible? If so, why not everyone go buy from Labuan?
Ex: Honda City Grade E, Normal in KK, OTR, RM 90,980, but in Labuan, it's RM 62,480.

i live at kk sabah.Buy a car from labuan??it is not impossible..but prepare a cash to pay tax to custom.let say if u buy a brand new car like city, RM62K at labuan, then custom will evaluate the car value.then u need to pay the tax before u can free the car from labuan.so plus minus not worthy.

goodness, i'm sure that you are not first with such an intention.

if it was feasible in the first place, everyone living close to langkawi/labuan would be owning luxurious rides by now.

If you buy car from these tax free islands, u can bring it to mainland for 3 mths under the new ruling.

But consider the shipping costs, procedures involve and you must keep the vehicle for 5 years before being able to transfered to mainland and pay the full tax, nobody thinks its worth it.

Theres no such thing as cheap car in Malaysia except either its potong or stolen

After 5 years also kena tax la, no matter how many years will still kena tax. Just that it will be depreciated as time goes by.

PS: i grew up in labuan.

If it stayed there longer, the cost + tax is still cheaper from buying in mainland. What you can do is kirim a car to your trusted friend. But let him use it there la biggrin.gif

after 5 years still taxed????

Do they tax the car based on 2nd hand market value or based on ur car's price when bought new?Not worth it unless you plan to buy your second home there

ok meh nak ajar sikit petua mcm mana nak bayar tax murah kereta daripada labuan atau langkawi,,,,,,
mula2 nak beritahu selama manapun pakai kereta di labuan bila nak bawak ke tanah besar tetap akan kena tax
mmg untung beli hutang di duty free dan bayar tax cash sebab tax tak mahal mana pun sebenarnya ia ikut suka2 kastam berapa nak bubuh
ok untuk beli kereta secondhand nasihat aku suruh tuan kereta terdahulu clearkan tax dulu dan masukkan dalam harga kereta yang korang nak bayar,,,kalau dia tak mampu korang la bayar,,,kena diingat tax akan kembali seperti baru setelah nama pemilik bertukar didalam geran jadi lebih baik tax di clearkan dahulun oleh owner lama baru tukar nama korang
satu lagi berkawan baiklah dgn kastam pasti ada diskaun
bagi kakitangan kerajaan akan ada diskaun 25% cukai jika anda ada surat pertukaran tempat kerja ke tanah besar,,,just bawa surat pertukaran itu semasa mohon pentaksiran cukai keatas kenderaan anda

am working in Langkawi now...

The tax structure is different for CBU and CKD cars.

For CBU cars, will get approx 100% market value tax; for CKD, it's approx 50% market value. Say a Mitsubishi ASX, selling here in Langkawi for 70k, then 100% tax (another 70k) will make it 140k, which is the same as mainland. A Grand Livina 1.8 selling here 72k, so add 50% tax is about 98k, which is same as peninsula.

The subjective thing here is the market value valuation - "subjective" means depend on the custom officer... That's why some people will buy and use car in Langkawi for at least 6 months, then only send it over to mainland.

Of course, luxury segment cars have higher tax structure, up to 300% of market value. But again, it is very "subjective"...Depending on the "subject" (read officer) you are dealing with.
