Sigh... Was looking so hard for this information earlier on when I was planning to buy a car overseas while I was still there...

Guess I'm waaaaay too late now and it costs waaaaaay too much and waaaaaay not worthwhile to bring nice cars into Msia... Maintenance, tax, wonderful ROADS in MSia will juz spoil the cool ride.

BTW, very good piece of info and thanks for taking the time to contribute icon_rolleyes.gif

That is not how you calculate... by your methods a 9/10 year old car would be tax free... but it is not...
it is a year by year depreciation... (with the exception of the 6th year) and the value will not reach zero for a infinate number of years...

and It is the retail value of the car brand new...not the price at which you purchased 2nd hand that is used to calculate..Surely the retail price of a mid/high end, 2L BMW cost more than RM24500 brand new.

year and the value of the car remaining .... to be times with 120% for 2L, 165% (for car larger than 3L).

1 st year.. 90%
2nd year.. 81%
3rd year .. 72.9%
4th year .. 65.61%
5th year .. 59.049%
6th year .. 30%
7th year .. 27%
8th year .. 24.3%
9th year .. 21.87%
10th year .. 19.683%
... and so on
You see the huge gap between 5th and 6th years....

A 6 year old car 2L car ...30%value of car x 120%= 36% price of the initial retail price of the car, would be the tax to be paid.

say a car at RM 90k initially after 6 years will still need to pay RM32.4k in taxes

In order to apply for this permit your car must be registered under your name for at least 3 years. The following documentation must then be presented and processed:
Information from people in UK said the car is under your posession for 9 months only? anyone know about this?

By that time tax would likely have cahnged... as of now..

4th year .. 65.61%
5th year .. 59.049%
6th year .. 30%

Japan made car have 25% off initially... So lets say a 2L, 6 year old car for RM X...

Amount taxed = (0.75)(0.30)(1.20) X = 0.27X, or 27% of RM X, the intial purchase price of car.

Cars in Japan over 3 yo need to pay shaken that is good for 2 years.. this may range from RM 3 to 4k or more...

The most worth for your hard earn cash now/minimal tax, would be ... for a good quality 2nd hand over 6yo cars, There is also a problem of AP... but (as of now) each citizen is entitled once in a life time AP if you stay more than a year abroad..... that is normal citizens.. not the undertable, underdeclared, unethetical, abuse of rights, AP kings

malaysia shouldn't protect their local cars. Look at Myvvi for instance? Does it look like a car that cost 50,000? I think if you put this car in international market people would rather chip more for a used mini cooper (new version).

If the government did not protect the local car market I think that proton would be forced to improve their cars due to competitors and this would be a very good option. Look at now and the future? Proton is still selling new cars the age of mine, this really upsets me.

And for what I think Perdana V6 should just be priced less then rm40k. The CRV high spec in the USA is just about $25k USD which after conversion is less then a new perdana. And not to forget the CRV is a jap car not local there.

Unlikely they will ever get their citizenships unless they covert to Muslim. There are so many stories that foreign citizens try so hard to get their PR here.

Hi BeastX, how do we determine in which year is the car in? Eg. the car is produced in Dec 1, 2000, can I declare is at its 2nd year at Jan 1 2001 (which in fact is only 1 month old) or at its 3rd year Jan 1 2002?

If the above is true, isn't it always feasible to import car in Jan than in Dec.?

Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you.
