Dear all,

It comes to a time for me to relocate to Malaysia after 20 years in UK. I have asked this question last year and now its for real. I have two cars and due to current economy downturn, there is no resale value for my cars; Honda S2000 and Honda Jazz both five years old.

I need to make a decision to import to Malaysia. Please correct me if I am wrong;

For Honda s2000, according to page 31 of the akta kastam 1967, after 5 years it valued at 25,000 approx. so consider the worse case senario at 222% tax, it will cost me MY 55500. correct? excluding feight and insurance.

For Honda Jazz, after 5 years will be 9500 and add 222% will be around 25,000, correct?

Both of the cars in my wife name, does it means that only she can bring one car in? And I cannot?

Lastly, can anyone direct me to the procedure of importing cars please.

Millions thanx!!!! Cheers

Honda S200 tax will be around RM39,585 after appeal.
Honda Jazz 1.3 tax will be around RM14,688 after appeal.
Honda Jazz 1.5 tax will be around RM16,807 after appeal.

Thanks

What are the tax implications and how would you go about bringing a motorbike for say 2 years (or length of visa) to be taken home when you leave?
Thanks

I plan to bring a car from Jpn using student AP. Currently eyeing on Toyota Harrier 2.4, Nissan Murano 2.5 or Mazda CX-7 2.3T.

All the cars above have docket price around 3,000,000yen.
I understand the older the car, the cheaper tax will be. I did some calculation from eshop xplore and found out that the tax I have to pay will be around RM60,000.

I find this ridiculous and tax is almost equal to the amount I have to pay for a 2nd hand card there. Is my calculation correct?

You did not mention age of the car.... most important for calculation of tax depreciation ... usually exceeding 5 years has more favourable lower tax...

Hi all, i've been followed this topic but still not really sure how the calculation works. I am planning to import 2006 Lexus IS250 (GBP 12000 = RM60000) to malayisa. I am entitled for 1 free AP for working UK for more than 2 years.

Do i use the used car price (RM60000) or the one listed in the harga docket (RM83980)?

Can anyone help me to calculate how much tax i need to pay for importing this car?

hellow there guys,

i'm planning to ship back a 2003 DC5R 1998cc back to Malaysia from the UK, next year 2011. I have done the calculation according to the formula on earlier. Hope some sifus could help to double check incase there is any misscalculation.

Price in Year Manufactured (Yen) : 2,590,000 - (took from a website in earlier post)
Price in Year Manufactured (RM) : 97,500 - (Subject to currency rate)

(-) Peralihan 15% : 82,875.00

(-) Depreciation 03-08, 70% : 24,863.00
(-) Depreciation 08-09, 10% : 22,377.00
(-) Depreciation 09-10, 10% : 20,140.00
(-) Depreciation 10-10, 10% : 18,126.00

FOB Value : 18,126.00
Freight Fare (+1700) : 1,700.00
Insurance 1.5% of FOB : 272.00
CIF : 20,098.00

-20% Custom Selangor Discount : 16,079.00
-10% Custom Putrajaya Discount : 14,471.00

( + Import Duty 30% + Excise Duty 80% + Sales Tax 10% ) = RM 22,777.00

Assuming you can get the discounts.... yes... around that RM22k....hope Yen will drop lower in 2011 (For now increased about 30% compared to early 2008, late 2007, that about a third of the tax)

Importing A Vehicle To Malaysia

Unfortunately this is going to be a hassle. It is perhaps the best idea to just put your car into storage or in the care of a friend while you are in Malaysia. However if you really have to bring your car the following will be helpful.

The imposition of very high import duties make owning a non Malaysian made car somewhat expensive. Import duties run to as high as 300%. Consequently the vast majority of cars in Malaysia are locally produced ones. Cost of maintenance and parts for foreign cars are also factors to be considered. Needless to say if your car is rare or indeed not available in Malaysia these factors become paramount.

Shipping charges, documentation and bureaucracy may also cause you problems, although hiring a shipping agent will alleviate most of the stress involved, charges will of course be imposed.

To import your car, you must apply for an Approval Permit (AP) from the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI).

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:

1. A letter of application addressed to the Ministry Of International Trade and Industry (MITI) for the importing of a car from your home country to Malaysia for personal use.
2. A JK69 form must be purchased MITI and duly completed.
3. Documentation indicating proof of ownership. Typically this will be a purchase receipt or transfer of ownership/letter from the previous owner if the car was purchased second-hand.
4. The original and photocopied registration.
5. The cars original insurance documents and/or a letter from the insurance company.
6. Your work permit and letter of contract from your employer in Malaysia.
7. A photocopy of your passport.

All these documents must be presented to the officer in charge at the MITI offices, who will also conduct a short interview. Processing of your application typically takes seven working days, if all goes well you will be issued an Approval Permit allowing you to import your car. The permit is valid for only 3 months, if you do not import your car by then, you will have to go through the entire process all over again.

Upon the arrival of your car, you are required to collect it yourself from the port and then you will need to apply for a permit from the Malaysian Road Transport Department or "Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan", this entails more registration paperwork which of course will include your proof of ownership and registration documents, a car inspection and the payment of the import duties.

Purchase price of the vehicle can be taken into account in the calculation of the Customs Value and this is only an estimation of the calculations of Customs Duties. However, Royal Malaysian Customs has docket price of the particular vehicle to determine the calculation of the exact Customs Value. The calculation of Customs Duties also depends on the original registration date (birth date), engine capacity, date of import and model of the vehicle.
Simple Question & Answer

Question:
I work / study at overseas and already purchased a car and intended to bring the car into Malaysia. Can I know the procedure?

Answer:
Malaysia citizen who work or study at overseas can import a vehicle for personal use subject to the approval permit given by Ministry of International Trade and Industry. To get the approval applicant have to purchase and fill the JK69 Form. JK69 is a gazetted Custom Form. The form comes with three carbonised copies. Therefore, it cannot be downloaded from the website. Once endorsed by MITI, the form becomes an Approved Permit (AP). JK69 can be purchased at:

Percetakan Nasional Malaysia Berhad
Jalan Chan Sow Lin
50554 Kuala Lumpur
Tel : 03-92212022
Fax : 03-92220690

Person that is eligible to bring in personal vehicle are as follows:
i. Malaysians studying overseas (at least diploma level) for more than a year and returning home permanently. Accompanying spouse is not eligible.
ii. Malaysians working legally on a permanent post overseas (at least a year) and returning home permanently. Accompanying spouse is not eligible.
iii. Government officials posted overseas for more than a year. Accompanying spouse is eligible for one AP.

(For more information on (i), (ii) and (iii), please go to APPLICATION PROCEDURE AND WORK PROCESS. Refer to DOCUMENT 11: Guidelines to Apply for Import License For Personal Motor Vehicles Of Malaysian Citizens Working Or Studying Overseas)

iv. Expatriates with valid working pass/permit. The importation of the personal vehicle is subject to re-export condition upon termination of work employment in Malaysia.
v. Participants of Malaysia My Second Home Programme (MM2H). (For detail, please go to http://mm2h.motour.gov.my)
vi. Malaysians specialists returning home under the Ministry of Human Resource program. (For detail, please go to Laman Web Rasmi Kementerian Sumber Manusia - Home)
A complete application has to be submitted manually to any of the following offices:

i. Trade Services Division
Ministry of International Trade and Industry
2nd Floor, Block 10 Government Offices Complex
50622 Jalan Duta
Kuala Lumpur
Tel : 603-62034819
Fax: 603-62013012

ii. MITI Cawangan Sabah
Tingkat 3, blok D&E
Bangunan KWSP
49,Jalan Karamunsing
88622 Kota Kinabalu
Sabah
Tel: 088-239061
Fax : 088-235645

iii. MITI Cawangan Sarawak
Tingkat 3, Bangunan Bank Negara
93400 Kuching Sarawak
Tel : 082-257164
Fax : 082-417835

After getting the permit (AP), the vehicle can be imported into Malaysia and must be declared to the Royal Malaysian Customs at the customs station/ office at the place of import using the Customs Form No. 1 which can be obtained or purchased at:

Percetakan Nasional Malaysia Berhad
Jalan Chan Sow Lin
50554 Kuala Lumpur
Tel : 03-92212022
Fax : 03-92220690

The form comes with four carbonised copies. Therefore, it cannot be downloaded from the website.
Ordinary people did not know that every Malaysian citizen is entitled to one AP in a lifetime. Link to news via MalaysiaKini.Com: Rafidah directed to address AP issue in Parliament

I have posted this in Zerotohundred.Com also. Please add if anyone have additional information.

Hello there
Saw your info and had helped me a lot. Can I know which shipping company did you use? I'm a student in UK and am planning to buy a car to be shipped back to Malaysia next year. I did loads of research but just stucked on the shipping part. Could you advise on this matter? How long does it take to arrive in Malaysia etc.

Also, I left exactly 1year till my graduation and just about to buy a car. As I know the requirements to shipped back the car is to own the car for at least 9months. I've been staying in UK for 3years. Since its 9months and I have 12months left on my visa, can I ship back the car say 3month earlier before my visa expired? For instance, I am graduating in July 2011 and my visa allows me to stay til oct 2011 and between . Say, the requirement to own the car was 9months, can I start the paperwork and ship the car 2-3months earlier (if shipping takes about 1month to reach Malaysia). so, its like arrive in Malaysia exactly 9month or 10months old. Get what I mean?

Kind regards
Racheal

If you read just a few post before this, you can see a guy asked the exact same question as you. A forumer suggested Palshipping if you are in the UK, I used the same company too. Just make sure you get the quotes in writing with all the info before you aggree to use their service. Get quotes for custom clearance in Malaysia too whether you wanted to do it yourselves or by using their agents.

You need to have ownership of the car for 9 month when you apply for AP no matter what your visa situation is. You can only apply for AP when you are in Malaysia as they need to see your plane tickets. It is advised that you apply for AP when the car is already in transit to prevent paperwork issue at the port.

If you wanted to come back in Oct, try and send the cars either in Sept or a week before your flight back. As soon as you arrive in Malaysia, either find an agent or start AP application yourself. It is not hard but if you live far from KL, I advise you to use an agent.

I'll add that AP application takes around 2 weeks..... and up to almost month in my case...
