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.

Outdated info...

latest revision as I know of... (posting 3rd time.....)
user posted image

the max they can charge u now is 165%....... all vehicle types....

sakuraguy,... you r in Japan?...want to bring a car back?...

Stating this the 4th time..

Apply AP from MITI no charge .. except a few ringgit for Form..
No difference if you r a student/profesional..
Live in the country for more than 1 year... own the car for more than 9 months.

10% devalued every for year.... less than 6 years
70% off evaluated value for a 6 year old car..
10% devalued every year after 6 years

Japanese made car get 25% off the initial value too....... then you times the value of the car with engine capacity in the table above... that would be the tax that you need to pay...

165% x [above 3L car.. value (depreciate as stated in my previous post)]... 6 years old car and above has the highest tax cut

not sure of the Euro made cars... but Japanese made cars (or brand) have 25% off the initial value of car before depreciation calculation..

there is also appeal where you can get few k RM discount...

Even you get the car for free.. you still need to pay tax based on evaluation and currency of country of origin.

Usually the tax imposed (for 8 years old or more) on car is less than the market value of the car... A RM24.5k car ... would probably be at around RM40k total (tax and cost)

Let say; Mazda 6 2.0L or BMW 320i both at the same price range/same yr.. happy.gif

1) 10% devalued every for year.... less than 6 years
2) 70% off evaluated value for a 6 year old car..
3) 10% devalued every year after 6 years

so then,i get a 5yr old model / 7 yr
10% de-valuated = 50% / 70%
24500 x 50% = 12250 / 24500 x 70% = 17150
12250 +(12250 * 165%) = 32462 / 7350 + 165%tax= 19477.5

if this;pretty acceptable..i think so.. wink.gif
if got one for free;lucky enuf la..pay tax oni..LOL

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

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

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.

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...
*
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.

Seems a lot has changed since I bought back my car in 2003....

Getting an AP was very easy. Got mine in a day. As long as you have all the documents you should be fine. Same conditions like now, 9 months ownership, studying overseas for at least a year, etc. They'll also want to see your road tax and insurance overseas.

Customs was a headache though. At the time, my 1.8L Lancer was taxed at 170%!!! To compound the problem further, the customs will value the car THEMSELVES, not the value that you bought the car! They kept insisting using the Japanese price of a Lancer instead of the price of my Australian-assembled Lancer which was much cheaper. You can show your receipt, invoice, whatever, and they'll still ignore it and use their price.

Luckily though, the value of the car is negotiable. They'll consider depreciation, and of course deduct the value of the tax you paid overseas. I ended up paying about 90% of the value of the car for the customs duty, which is still quite high but better than paying 170%..... sweat.gif biggrin.gif

sitting on AP rights.. to charge whatever they desire (may go up to 20k or more).. getting fat/rich for doing nothing but just for the privilage awarded because of contacts... this on top of the high tax... makes the Malaysian system... very flawed

There is no escape from tax... One of the cars will not have the right to land/enter in Malaysia (stuck at the Port)..

AP... Approved Permit to import a car... not a free pass from tax..

1AP (for 1 car) per person... once in a life time... unless the Mal. gov abolish the present rules.. There is no escape from tax (unless you can get, tax exemption for your return to Malaysia,such as high skilled professional)

I don't really understand how to calculate the tax for import.

For example,

If i buy a car at Australia for RM100,000 and i want to bring back to Malaysia after i stay there for 3 years and above.
How the tax counts? The car is 5.0L. hmm.gif

Worth, if you are willing to part with another RM100,000 or so (pure tax) to the government... note that a >5 years old car receives 70% depreciation. If you have a buyer in Malaysia willing to part more money to buy a car off you you have to wait another 2 years after your return before you can transfer name (as the AP stipulates).

also you could look at it this way.. a brand new car (less than a year) would cost you about RM300,000 (value + tax), after 3 years, it will cost you about RM200,000 (value + tax).

You could appeal for more discounts from custom, my calculation is the maximum that they can charge you.

That RM300,000 ( value + tax ) is the cost of buying car at Malaysia or overseas?

buying a brand new car(5L) overseas at RM100,000 for less than a year (but more than 9 months) will be taxed about RM200,000... so total.. would roughly be RM300,000

in the depreciation calculation of a car, over 60 months to 72 months, the car would have 70% depreciation.....so you'll need the car to be over 84 months for the next 10% depreciation... therefore a car over 60 months to less than 84 months (for a period of 2 years) should still be at 70% depreciation. It is best, therefore to get a car just exceeding 60 months old.

Hrm..., I just had a thought...

What if I disassembled the entire car, and shipped the parts in one by one, and then reassemble in my garage?

A little troublesome..., but I noticed that NISMO and other aftermarket companies can sell parts for cheap. Maybe can?

under The Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme,

One of the fringe benefits from this programme is the option for successful applicants to either import one (1) used car that belongs to the applicant personally from his or her country of residence (subject to Approved Permit but exempted from payment of import duty, excise duty and sales tax if done within 6 months from MM2H pass endorsement date) OR to purchase one (1) locally made passenger car in Malaysia which is exempted from payment of excise duty and sales tax (within 1 year from MM2H pass endorsement).

arghh.... I saw a Civic Type R year 2007 only RM90k in Japan. Thinking of buying this 1 and import to Malaysia. Could I just buy an AP from Naza lets say RM50k and just like that? RM90k + 50k = RM140k ? Or I still need to pay alot of crappy taxes eventually much more expensive than buying a new Type R in Malaysia ?

if end up still 200k, then i better buy a new 1 in Malaysia. Really no way to get lower price ? How come those used car importer can get so low price ? Like Honda Integra 05 selling in Malaysia for around Rm170k, I saw 1 in jap site which is around RM70k, so I guess the cost should be around RM140-150k, mark up till RM170k. Hmm.... I think you are right, so basically just use the car value X 2 , should be the estimated price in Malaysia biggrin.gif



wait wait, I found another Type R which is around RM75k, so would it be around RM150k arrived in Malaysia?


Added on June 23, 2008, 3:24 pmi tried to use the formula in page 2. Jap made car got 25% off ?

so lets say brand new Type R in Jap is Rm95k

RM95k X 25% = RM23750
RM95000 - RM23750 = RM71250

so is RM71250 X 90% (1 year old car) = RM64125
RM64125 X 120% = RM76950 (this is the total tax??)

Total price after bring in to Malaysia = RM80k (2nd hand Type R in Jap) + RM76950(tax) = RM156950 ???

Correct ar?

That's why many people are driving their imported cars for 10 years, 15 years.

Even tax for Proton, Perodua are relatively high too,..

Getting an AP does not omit you from taxes and duties... It is just the right to import.. sadly even this is abuse in this country that a fee is added (inflated artificially) to use the AP which "they" have gotten for free from the government.

Calculation as on May 2008 (refer to my post #66), a car from Euro's Freight Fee is RM 1700 (not the actual transport fee... As a container may cost RM3 to 5k, from UK)

FOB value = [(Value on the year made, as on custom's list) - (15%,.. earnings/ keuntungan peralih)] x (% depreciation according to the age of the car)

your FOB, in 2009 your car exceed the 60months period so it will be 30% of the initial car value (-15%) in 2003.

CIF (Cost, Insurance, Freight) value = FOB + Insurance(1.5% of FOB) + Freight fare (RM1700).


(calculation below may not be accurate, but I was taxed so)

For your <2L

Import duty = CIF x 30%.
Excise duty = (Import duty + CIF) x 80%, effectively 104%.
Sales tax = (CIF + Import duty + Excise duty) x 10%, effectively 23.4%

Total tax for a 2L car = 157.4% x CIF value.

So all you need to know is the approximate selling price of your car in 2003 to calculate FOB, CIF and finally the tax you be subjected to...

TQ for info..

that mean = buy second hand from UK = RM 40K
plus tax + shipping = must spend almmost 30 K more..

then total price = most probably RM 70 plus++...am i rite?..


so, tax very expensive..how come parallel importer can get more cheper price?

For student, AP is free, so no need pay for it (except for form)

For parallel importer, AP normally they buy from politician..must spend roughly RM 40-50 K for it..but the total price when car reach at malaysia is still lower...

How come?

Your calculations are more or less right

... find out the price of your car brand new as in 2003... minus 15% of it... then that value x 0.3 (30% after 5 years).

Assuming the car is RM 60k in 2003(brand new). FOB would be RM15.3k, CIF would be RM 17229.5 (15.3k + 229.5 + 1700)

the tax would be 155.4%xCIF = RM27.119k.

You can appeal at the kastam office for an additional discount up to 40% or more (depends on your persuasion ability)..., so you can get probably around RM15k in tax. So maybe is still worth it in your case ... A Euro spec car for about RM55k not including shipping.. plus 5 to 6k or more, depends on your transport options.

Parallel importer cannot import cars exceeding 5 years, individuals/personel/student AP can. Lots are underdeclared, from my calculations they are still overpriced even after feeding AP holders and customs officers...

Hi,

Just some questions.

1) Is there no way to bring back a left-handed drive car back to M'sia?
(Situation: Student AP after owning it for 1 year and stayed in foreign country for more than 1 year, Car information: 2004, 1.3L).

2) I notice that it says "europe/ UK" in the tax section, most european cars drive on the right side, only UK drives on the left, isnt it?
[Drive on the right side = steering on the left]
[Drive on the left side = steering on the right]
(Wikipedia Source)
Thus, doesn't that means importing a "steering on the left-side" car is possible?

Thanks

1. Actually owning for 9 months is sufficient, ..... after checking online.. maybe left hand drive is allow... but will be very inconvenient to you...

There are... they usually charge you RM 2k for their services... which includes procedures going through customs, jpj and puspakom.... However if you personally go to the customs office, you may get a much higher percentage of discount (depends on your ability to negotiate, you may safe a lot in tax). This charge does not included unloading/transporting from docks... which may cost you RM1 to 2k more...

In fact any private citizen can be a runner....

Unless there is a change of gov. policies, the trouble is getting the AP.... price of tax is based on the car value selling in 1999 and depreciated for 9 years.... even if the car is FOC, you will still be tax...

Custom will tax you based on the cars value as it was seling when it was made and minus the depreciated value... calculations/time period and example were given

BeastX .. great info

I'm currently in UK and planning to bring back car as most of u all in this forum.

Don't mean to question your info reliability but where does it officially say that Japanese made car get 25%?
If it does, u minus 25% to the FOB right? that's before calculating import, excise and sales tax.
ie FOB = (value car as brand new - 15%) X depreciation X 75% (jap cars)
Does this 25% discount applies if u import Jap made car from UK? or only Jap made cars imported directly from Jap.
How about Jap brand cars but manufactured not in Jap (dont know if there is such thing ..but say Nissan Qashqai)

U talked about aprox 40% discount from custom, that is discount to the total tax ie (import duty + excise duty + sales tax) X 60% OR
tax down to only 40%?

Cheers

It is not minus 25% from FOB... It was minus 25% from "price of the car in the year it was made"... This calculation was from someone's tax calculation back in 2004.. My car tax calculation in May of this year, got only a 15% off instead of 25%, it was classified as "keuntungan peralihan".

You can appeal for the FOB value of the car (My case) to be reduced and the overall discount you can get would be probably get up to 40% off the total tax (import duty + excise duty + sales tax), then without appeal. There are previous examples (2004 case) where 20 to 30% discounts was applied to the final tax and not FOB value. I guess this would depend on the custom officer...

Depends on the situation... a Discount on the FOB value may reduce the overall tax more then discount to the final tax.. especially for high CC car (3L and above).

For argument sake, I have done calculation based on your info on the BMW X5 (3L) BRAND NEW from UK
UPDATED based on BeastX comment about the insurance being 1.5% not 15%
» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «


Compare that against what X5 is being sold in Malaysia by authorized dealer which just RM 570k

Doesn't make sense. I guess the only way the car value can be 570k is only if CIF value is reduced via discount from custom or under declare or custom use BMW factory frice

I got this "gazetted car pricelist for 2006" over the Internet. This list provide CIF value for most CBU and X5 is just RM161k.
Put 161k into the calculation, the total cost would be RM 471k
That would be more reasonable ... dealership take 100k profit smile.gif

Anyway, BeastX which department of the custom did you go to for this purpose.
Maybe I should ask then what would be CIF value my shortlist cars smile.gif?

Insurance is 1.5% not 15%.... I have a nagging query with Custom department... the effective tax should be around 150% and not 193.15%... by all examples given.. import duty should not be included into the calculation of excise duty.

Besides u need to own the vehicle for 9 months to qualify for AP(unless the is a change in Gov.).... so.. another 20% depreciation to FOB

Seems a lot has changed since I bought back my car in 2003....

Getting an AP was very easy. Got mine in a day. As long as you have all the documents you should be fine. Same conditions like now, 9 months ownership, studying overseas for at least a year, etc. They'll also want to see your road tax and insurance overseas.

Customs was a headache though. At the time, my 1.8L Lancer was taxed at 170%!!! To compound the problem further, the customs will value the car THEMSELVES, not the value that you bought the car! They kept insisting using the Japanese price of a Lancer instead of the price of my Australian-assembled Lancer which was much cheaper. You can show your receipt, invoice, whatever, and they'll still ignore it and use their price.

Luckily though, the value of the car is negotiable. They'll consider depreciation, and of course deduct the value of the tax you paid overseas. I ended up paying about 90% of the value of the car for the customs duty, which is still quite high but better than paying 170%.....  sweat.gif  biggrin.gif
*
Bro (not sure u still reading this thread), u said u end up paying only 90%. Did custom reduced the import/excise/sales tax from 170% to 90%, but still maintain the value of the car as they valued it themselves?
OR, they still maintain the import/excise/sales tax but reduced the value of the car, which effectively will reduce the tax percentage?
Anyone else knows how custom works?

yup, looking for the same feedback. ... the best is to call custom and ask. But, not sure if they are willing to declare that they can give discount. Maybe I'll try call next week ... if not everyone is on Eid holiday

I have a question. Is it really necessary to have a job waiting for you in Malaysia before you can export your car from overseas? And must you be permanently in M'sia before you can do so?
No need, as long you are a Malaysian, and you can use the AP only once in your life-time..... but the car will be under your name/cannot change ownership for 3 years

Even if there is no tax and you got your car for free and no AP is required... the shipping cost alone would make the car not worth it. The AP alone is worth RM 10 to 20k to some (as charged by the AP Kings)...

In UK.... get a Merc/Beemer/Scooby/Evo

Not sure... but by right there should not be import and excise duty imposed... May be just the 10% sales tax is liable... Not sure if an AP is required...

my wife said she saw a new Ford Mustang w/California plates being driven by and older caucasian man somewhere in Penang.

Did not even have the Malaysia plates on it. That's gotta be illegal. But have to admit that the Mustang would be more rare than a Ferrari F430, or Bentley.

I have recently purchased an Evo X in Australia, could anyone please give me an idea how much tax I need to pay if I bring the car back next year. I paid AUD70,000 which approximately RM170,000 with current currency rate.

Rough estimates...

Assuming that your car would be 1 year old (more than 12 months, 24% depreciation, more than 9 mnths, 20% dep.).

FOB val. (depends on custom list)... AUD60k -24%= AUD45.6k

CIF val. = AUD45.6k+ AUD684+RM1200 = roughly AUD46.8k

Tax = CIF x 157.4% = AUD 73.6k

or should be around 130% (instead of 157.4%) for... AUD 60.8k...

The tax will based on the purchase price or the current market price? Evo X in Malaysia is selling around 300k but from your calculation, it seem like the car will be more expensive than buy one in Malaysia!

This sound ridiculous, why the gov give an AP to everyone work or study overseas but tax them more than a car dealers have.

You can get an Evo X in most of the city in Australia, if not you still can buy from interstate.

Gtr35 in Australia is currently selling around AUD175,000.

Based on the custom list... If you can get the dealer list price (from Malaysia) I bet it will be declared well below AUD70k
In Japan the lowest end EvoX is AUD51k (before the eco/currency crisis would have been much lower), custom's price list should be below this...
For Aussie cars however you maybe taxed differently, custom officer may add additional cost to the car if they are extra accessories/ICE/Rims, though I escape this scrutiny and my car passed even if I had diamond encrusted rims, (depends on the custom's office mood, I guess).

Custom's office phone and e-mail are available on their web page site. You could negotiate with them to lower their evaluated tax price, I got a 40% discount on my tax.

With the lower AUD it is are cheaper to buy older stocks (with foreign money) before new stocks come.

Do you mind if I ask what kind of car you brought back to Malaysia and where was it from? How much it cost all up for your car, does it still cheaper than those in Malaysia market?

I did try the phone number in the custom web site but the guy asked me to ring another number. Then I called the number he gave, the person ask me to call another number again, it would never end. It seems like those people don’t know what they are doing, very frustrating.

What do you mean by old stock? Do you think I should send my car back or I shouldn’t?

PMed you, lower AUD value now, imports from Jp would be more expensive as Yen now at a 13 (or more) year high. I would think the higher cost would be passed to customers.. Yen is about 35% more to RM a year and 2 months ago.

The AP kings are making a profit selling these permits... RM10 to 20k of easy money per permit, Gov earns tax, privilege idividuals earns AP payment, all from the pockets of Citizens...

There is a Gov program in which professionals working overseas can bring back a vehicle tax free... as an incentive to prevent brain drain...

The car needs to be yours for 9 months before you qualify for AP. The age of the car is calculated from the month it is rolled out from the factory.

I have got a question here, if I bring back a BMW M3 about 9 years old and based on the depreciation table "10% for the following 12 months after 72 months", does it mean that the car will have 100% depreciation and it will be free tax?

10% depreciation to the value of previous year..
year 6 = 30% left
year 7 = 27% left
year 8 = 24.3% left
year 9 = 21.87% left
year 10 = 19.68% left...

and so on...

As you see its a reverse log curve, it will take infinite number of years before it is tax free...

I called custom and ask about the professionals working overseas tax free, they told me they haven't got this program. Only a profesional foreigner can get a tax free if they apply the malaysia second home program. How many foreigner will do that, I won't do this if I got the money. I'm sure if malaysia do this to it own citizen, definitely can attract lots of young professional going back.

By the way, is anyone know roughly the custom market list of the 2001-3 BMW M3?

Stay(study/work, but not as tourist) for more than 12 mnths, own the car for more than 9 mnths, and you can get one AP to bring only one car.

Your Malaysian wife/husband/family/friend (with the same criteria) would need to apply for another.

The car needs to be under the name of the AP holder for 2 years, and cannot be transferred in that period.

Yes, taxes (import, excise and sales) still apply, you only escape the artificial "tax" of the AP (which is essentially a free permit issue by the gov.).

If you want to escape huge taxes, get a hybrid (2009 budget).

Beast, does that hybrid tax exemption apply to the "student AP"? I thought it only apply to the grey importers.
And inm, these hybrid cars must be new when being brought in Malaysia. If use the student AP, definitely more than 9 months old car when u wan to bring into Malaysia.

Guys, those free tax for max 2 cars is under the Malaysian gov initiative to persuade professional working overseas to come back

It is good that you posted the link on working professionals Malaysian ...

The 100% import duty and 50% excise duty off maybe applicable to Student AP too... As Honda MY are revising their Hybrid pricing... a RM40k price cut... Prius are 10 years old already... Importing one could be cheap, but a functioning/new battery maybe needed...

Yup, working pros only ... but I have not personally meet or talk to anyone who had gone through this process before.

As you said, that's Honda MY pricing .... they get that tax reduction too, hence the price cut.
Still not convinced the student AP will get the examption. Nonetheless, I'm more than happy if the tax exemption applies. Anyone can share this info from the official source?

R u referring to a new Prius or a 10 yo recon Prius? If its new I'm sure you dont need a new battery.

Also the professionals qualified for the exemption is quite blur, got different years, somemore phd, master, bachelor degree etc etc...
Not about professional's tax exemption.... but, if I am not mistaken, you cannot get the AP, studying/working in Brunei, Thailand, Indonesia and Singapore...

Tax free.... you can buy a car in Malaysia tax free, like the prices at Langkawi/Labuan ... Bringing in any car from outside the country will require AP even if it is tax free.

HI Guys i need your help. I had been working in Australia for more than a year and i bought a second hand car (Honda Jazz - Semi auto 1.5cc Hatchback). It was built on March 2003. I bought it on April 2008 and was planning to ship it back to Malaysia next month (February 2009). I bought it for A$15,400. Here is some of my questions:

1) If i ship now, when are they counting the age of my car? When the car reach the port in KL? or when it get ships from here? As you can see, if i ship now, obviously the car will be 5yrs and 11 mths and by the time it reaches KL, it will be > 6yrs.

2) How long will the shipping takes from Australia to Malaysia (approximate)?

2) On what value will they be calculating the customs/taxes? at my purchase price or at brand new price?

3) Can any bro that help me what is the tax/value (and all other charges) that i might need to pay if i ship it back

4) Is there an office (Eg custom office or MITI) that will tell you how much taxes i need to pay before i ship my car back? I don't want to ship it back and then they tell me i need to pay RM50-60k then i really can't afford it

5) Also out of the topic, anyone knows any removalist which is highly recommended to move my stuffs back to KL from Australia?


Appreciate all your help

1) 6 years, Or more if you are lucky and the custom officer gives you more..
2) Get quotation from the shipping company.. some are online and the schedule should be there.. (rough estimate 2 weeks)
2a) Brand new price (minus some percentages) and the depreciated value. 1.5L has very low tax.. (Plead with the custom officer, as Jazz is available in Malaysia, you may get a higher cut in evaluated tax).
3)Tax... use my formula.., you need to follow Aussie law, importation documentation, Shipping by container 20ft... I estimate RM3 to 5k.. Port handling charges by a forwarder in Kelang around RM1k (cheaper if you know people).
4) Evaluation done by Custom officer at the port when it lands. Rough estimate your car would probably be tax at most RM15k (depends Currency value). You probably can get it to below RM10k if you negotiate/appeal.
5)... Cannot help you..... but 20ft will be a tight fit, if you have lots of things. If your shipping company allow you to stuff/stack till full in and out of the car, it will be great. If not you may need a 40ft container (cost probably increase 50 to 70% that of the 20ft container). If you share with another Malaysian with another car, you can safe cost. All things excluding the car should be tax free....

So does that means based on your est.

Shipping and doc from Australia to M'sia - RM3-5k
Tax and custom charges (in M'sia) - RM10k-15k
Port Kang clearnce - RM1k
Total - RM21k (MAX - estimate)?

By the way, my car is made in japan does that have discount too? Can i call up the custom officer or send them my docs for a quote before sending my car back?


Added on January 18, 2009, 4:36 amHi BeastX,
I had made my own calculation. Not sure if it's correct or not. Can you check out for me? Btw, what is the difference between CBU Engine and CKD Engine? Also do i need to pay for insurance, etc?

I should have been more specific... use my calculations on post 66 on page 4..
There is no made in Japan (25% cut, but a 15% "keuntungan peralihan" cut)
The last part on Effective tax can be disputed, it is either 115.5% or 150.25%(as stated)

If your FOB value is RM 50k (estimate), after 6 years it will be RM15k, RM13.5k (if after 72 months they give you 10% depreciation.

CIF value = RM13.5k + RM1.2k + RM202.5 = RM14.9k

Effective maximum tax (if it is 115.5%) = RM 17.2k, (if it is 150.25%) = RM22.39k...

You can appeal for further cuts... 30 to 40% more (of the effective tax) if you are lucky..

This also highly depends on the exchange rate. It would be much better if it is calculated based on AUD than Yen. The difference could be as much as 30% (Yen gain against AUD since Sep 08)

Hi BeastX,
Thanks for your info. I noticed in page 6, there is a price lists from one of the bro here about types of car and CIF Value and the value of Honda JAzz 1.5cc VTEC is around RM41,627. Do you know what that means? also how come based on your computation the CIF is only $14,900? Is the one $41,627 stated in the price lists FOB Value? I'm a little confuse. Thanks once again for your help

Depreciation value applies to FOB (the RM 14.9k from 50k that I estimated). CIF is FOB plus the insurance and shipping. If CIF is that much lower already at RM41.6k (before depreciation). Then, your tax will be much lower that what I calculated.

Thanks for your Info BeastX. I called up Cargo Online (www.cargoonline.com.au) and they sent me a quote based on my following info

Car type: Honda Jazz 1.5cc Auto
Year: 2003

They said they provide 2 different service. 1 is container and another one is RORO.

1) Container

Can load up stuffs into the car and outside the container

Costs
Container: USD1,205
Inland trucking to depot from metropolitan areas: A$180
Container loading and trucking to wharf: A$680
Original handling and port charges: A$454

This does not include insurance and got 2 options.

1) Total loss - 1.5% of the value you wish to cover + $50 processing fees (incuding theft, ship sinking, etc)
2) Full coverage - 2.5% of the value you wish to cover + $50 processing fees (same as above except it includes major dent, loss of parts but not covering minor damages)

2) RORO
Not allow to load stuffs into the car and only ship to Singapore

Costs
Container: USD1,090
Inland trucking to depot from metropolitan areas: A$200
Original handling and port charges: A$230

Insurance the same as above.

Based on my computation if i'm gonna take the container, it will costs me approx A$3,200 which is approx RM7,840 excluding insurance and charges on Port Klang. Do you guys think it's expensive?

That is quite a huge chunk of moolah for 20ft?... As a comparison...a 20ft from japan to Port Kelang is about RM4k (before Yen appreciated, about RM5k now).

Hi BeastX,
Can we call custom malaysia and give them the detail to check out from them how much taxes and charges we need to pay before sending the car back? Cos based on my computation (also depending on the FOB Value at custom's price lists) and if their price lists is anything about RM50k i will be looking at around RM20-30k to bring back my honda jazz which is 6yrs old (also if it's not negotiable la). SO i just wanna get a quote from them first see can afford or not and then later stage when arrive, try to negotiate somemore. Hope you know what i mean. If yes, i will try call the custom malaysia up or if you have a specified number to call

Thanks

Cannot help you there, but you can try contacting them by phone on number listed on the website (Or friends/family can personally go to the Custom office). As Jazz is also sold by Honda Malaysia it should be quite straight forward.

I called up the custom today at 03-8882 2346 and told me i need to pay effective tax rate of 150.25%. Didn't tell me exact figure and at what cost price. Not really helpful. She told me to submit my invoice? What invoice? I also don't know. I actually asked my father to call since i'm overseas. He also don't know much. SO complicated. Sigh...

4. Custom Sales Tax ( 10% ) Rm 10,816.00

Wow... Jazz is a "cheap" car... in Yen (before Yen appreciated). It is really not a good time to bring in Jap. made car, with the current currency situation (as bad as the 97 eco. crisis)

See my estimate was about right on the Docket price. Anyway the runner calculation did not include the depreciation of FOB value

Let's see... If the rate excise (by the runner) is correct at 60% (and not 75%) the effective tax would be 128.8% (RM66.976k) and not 150.25% (see the large increase in discrepancy when excise duty includes import duty).

Runners may charge you a fee of up to RM2k for their service which includes applying to MITI, JPJ, Puspakom and such. You don't have to pay a cent, if you have time and do the procedures yourself (As I did). You only need RM2(I think) for the JK69 form, and fee for registration and testing (which would not be included in the runner's service) and about a day's time.

Yeah...

I think he also did not deduct 15% off from the FOC price. I think he deduct the 15% from the 75%. that's why he got 60%. Also got another quote from a shipping company charging me AUD4,400 for shipping including 1 hour loading time. IF more than 1 hours charge AUD100 per hour. Even more expensive than my first quote.

Third. I try to get a quote from alliedpickford.com.my she said not advise me to bring back my car from overseas and gave me an attachment saying can't bring back car > 5yrs so i told her it's common with ppl with AP permit. SHe said she will check out the AP permit things and get back to me. She will need someone to come to my house to measure my car waa...


Added on January 20, 2009, 4:03 amHi BeastX,
I believe you have shipped your car from overseas to Malaysia last year before right? Can you tell me what is the process you did? Like once you get your AP permit, what you do next?

Why is there a need for measurements, go to Honda.com.my and all the measurement are there. Private ownership (non commercial) you can bring in a car as old as you want.

Ok... my process
1. Get necessary documents needed by MITI as listed on their site. Make sure you copy down the chassis and engine No.
2. Send car by container, made sure you have ample of time to return to Malaysia and settle the AP application. You may ask the shipping company to hold on for a better/suitable date to ship you container.
3. Send-in your application when you arrive in Malaysia while you container maybe in transit in the ocean/seas. By right it should only take 1 week to process your application, but mine took about 3 weeks.
4. You should have a "bill of Landings" (from the shipping company), List of things, and your AP.... hand it over to a forwarder company which you hire, which handles the port landings/custom/handling/trailer truck and such. They will inform you the tax needed to be paid, as calculated by the custom office, with this document head to the custom office to appeal for a further reduction, uses your best excuses (currency appreciation/student and such), you should get some further discount. Settle the tax/duty your container will be released. All other things other than the car should be tax free.... so import as many Aussie stuff as the container can handle, big stuff may need 3/6 months of prove of purchase.
5. The forwarder should return your AP when you collect your car/stuff, you will need a temporary plate (to legally) drive you car to Puspakom. Go to JPJ/Puspakom to get your vehicle registered with the necessary with documentation (including the AP). The AP will be collected/returned to JPJ when you register you vehicle. Pay insurance, road tax and get the car plate done and you can drive the car within the day (as I did).

I live in Thailand and have a vintage car I would like to bring over, but the import tax to Thailand is 300% based on whatever they think the car is worth.

It looks like bringing it to Malaysia, and then getting a visa for it at the Thai Malay border may be an option for me - the car "visa" lasts upto 6 months and I dont have to take the car out of Thailand to get it renewed.

I was wondering if its plausible to get a Malay citizen, agency or company to import it for me? Theres a lot of posts on this thread - sorry if I missed something and my question doesnt make sense.

The car is a 1979 Chevvy Corvette (30 years old), its 350ci (5.7 litres) its in "as new" condition. I dont know if I can find the original purchase price - but it would be quite low, like $5,000USD or something silly like that. Current value in Australia is about $30k USD. Would it really be depreciated at 30 years do you think? If depreciation applies then the tax should be faily low - I tried to follw the posts, but got a bit confused about whether all the tax is reduced or just part of it, so I cant figure out what the expected tax should be

In Thailand they dont let you know how they estimate the cars value - its totally unknown until the inspectors see it - so theres no way I would import to Thailand directly.

Any feedback would be very appreciated.

Hi,

I am thinking of bringing back a 2007 X5 3.0 from Canada to Malaysia. I am currently in Canada and will be going back to Malaysia next year. Do I need to complete the JK69 form now and get it endorsed at MITI (which will become a personal AP) before coming back to Malaysia? or all these can be done once I am back in Malaysia, but the car would have already been on its way to Port Klang?

Thanks.

Sure, the process should take a week, you can apply while it is in transit, the sooner the better, be fore-warned the tax is 221.75% x 3 years depreciation (unless the change the tax rate before/at 2010). ... but I bet your X5 being a left hand drive will be inconvenient in Malaysia.

221.75%.... almost(more) like you pay the price of 3 cars for 1.

If you have a spouse working in canada (proof of employment), you can get another car imported.

One thing to point out, the car brought in through personal AP needs to be under the AP applicant's name for 2 years before any transfer is allowed..

A 30 years old car have very little tax on it in Malaysia.... depreciation over 30 years... is about only 2.4% or the original cost (brand new in 1979) left for FOB value. Rough calculation... as US 5k is much higher in 1979 than now... The tax in Malaysia should be only about US300...

I should have been more specific... use my calculations on post 66 on page 4..
There is no made in Japan (25% cut, but a 15% "keuntungan peralihan" cut)
The last part on Effective tax can be disputed, it is either 115.5% or 150.25%(as stated)

If your FOB value is RM 50k (estimate), after 6 years it will be RM15k, RM13.5k (if after 72 months they give you 10% depreciation.

CIF value = RM13.5k + RM1.2k + RM202.5 = RM14.9k

Effective maximum tax (if it is 115.5%) = RM 17.2k, (if it is 150.25%) =  RM22.39k...

You can appeal for further cuts... 30 to 40% more (of the effective tax) if you are lucky..

This also highly depends on the exchange rate. It would be much better if it is calculated based on AUD than Yen. The difference could be as much as 30% (Yen gain against AUD since Sep 08)

Bro...Langkawi is only RM65k...In Japan, before the appreciation of yen, it is only RM40k (with Honda still making profit)... FOB value is always lower than the retail value in Langkawi by around 15% to 20%....

13 years depreciation is comes to roughly 12.91% of the car value left. Lets say the car value is RM65k* in 1996... in 2009, it depreciated to 8.4k (FOB), CIF is roughly RM 9.7k, effective tax is 150.25% ..... so your tax should be at RM14.57k

*The big if on the car value (a Subaru WRX or Evo??)...

Can please check and see whether my calc is correct or not.

Audi TT 1.8l 12 months rm150k EU

-15% = 127k
-25% = 95k
CIF max 100k

100k x 157.4% = 157k total tax??

That's almost like buying a new TT in msia, or did i do something wrong there? Can get cheaper or not? If not then I'll buy it in msia only lol.

Off topic : Is it possible to change from left hand drive to right hand drive? if yes around how much would it cost?

So after reading this forum for almost 1 hour, can someone please answer this simple question: DOES IT MEAN IT IS NOT WORTH IT TO IMPORT CAR BACK FROM UK?


I keep planning to buy this Porsche Cayman, second hand is £20k, brand new is £40k. (exchange rate now is x5.2) It is a 2007 year model with 2.7 Liter

How much will the tax work out to bring this back to my beloved country of Malaysia? I am crap with numbers, please please help...

I am so sad now..... listen to my friend and thought got an AP in a lifetime means it will be cheap.

I got a 2004 RX 8 now, it is only 1.3 (bought it for £5k only, new one will be £18k), will this car be worth it to bring back Msia?

Thanks for your help.
