Usually by SAL, the chances of getting taxed is much lower than using shipping method like DHL or FedEx.
And I'll stick with declaring it as personal item since it's retro, presumably used video games.
It'll probably end up at your door step, at most with a kastam stamping on it.

In the event if you get taxed with GST, it will be calculated as per below:
(declared value + kastam defined shipping fee) * 6%

The kastam defined shipping fee is not what you paid for shipping. It will be calculated by them and the amount is gonna be ridiculous. There's no way around it other than avoid DHL or FedEx.

Thanks for the reply evilhomura89,really appreciate it ! Oh so does that mean I don't have to worry that much haha. I'll claim it as personal item. What about if I use AIR (Registered Small Package) It Arrives in about half the time,and what happens when there is kastam stamping ? Do I get taxed,if so how much ? Sorry for all the questions cause I'm a newbie to this and the confusing conversation I had with pos malaysia isn't helping at all doh.gif

If you use registered small package, it should be handled by Pos Malaysia once it arrives in Malaysia. Chances of getting tahan by kastam quite low as well.
Usually when there's a kastam stamping, it means they have checked your parcel, either by opening it or by scanning it through x-ray.

If you get taxed (my only experience is with DHL), they will pay the taxes on your behalf, then they'll call you to prepare money to pay them upon delivery/self collection. The amount (assuming normal GST only) is 6% of the declared value plus custom-specified shipping fees.

I think it will be 30% (or maybe 25%) tax + 6% GST to import MTB frames..

Better check with customs first.. since weapon is a grey area it could pass it could not pass. I read somewhere someone bought archery bow (for sport) custom did not allow it

Haha even if you added the wheels they could tell the difference between an rb and mtb..

Btw the cheapest option for you would be sending it to Singapore.. Pay the 7% and go collect it by car

Hi all, I am currently doing a small business by importing from countries such as China and Japan.

I used my company credit card for purchase payment, and i found a shipping agent to help me import the products back.
So I have my credit card invoice, and a tax invoice provided from shipping agent for my shipping fees.

The shipping agent usually take care of the custom clearance.

Are these documents enough for audit purposes?
Or do I need anything else or pay any taxes?

Hi sifus,
I'm planning to buy a car seat and a baby stroller from Amazon. Want to know if I am going to be taxed for it? If yes how much is the tax?

BTW the stroller costs almost RM2k and the car seat costs around 1k. Thanks in advance.
