It shouldnt be taxed as it's only a pc, but it is subject to hand carry out thru the checkpoint e.g. (by car,bus).
If its by parcel or shipping, then u'll be taxed about 10% and a Sirim & Energy of Commision approval is required... smile.gif

I got this info according to this website

anyone who actually imported goods worth RM500 above got tax after 15th October 2010 do comment!

QUOTE
In order to boost the local tourism industry and to make Malaysia as a shopping haven for branded goods at competitive prices, the government proposes to abolish import duty range from 5% to 30% on about 300 goods favoured by tourists and locals, with immediate effect from Oct 15, 2010.


Heres the source : http://www.nbc.com.my/blog/?p=230


Added on December 24, 2010, 5:13 pmHere's another interesting update for you guys!

Abolishment of Import Duty on Tourism Products and Daily Used Product
To promote further Malaysia as the leading shopping destination, it is proposed that:
i. import duty of between 5% and 30% currently imposed on handbags, wallets,
suitcases, briefcases, apparel, footwear and hats be abolished;
ii. import duty of between 5% and 20% currently imposed on jewellery, costume
jewellery and ornaments be abolished; and
iii. import duty of between 5% and 20% currently imposed on toys such as dolls and
small scale recreational models be abolished.
To reduce the burden of the rakyat on the cost of daily use products, it is proposed
that:
i. import duty of between 10% and 20% currently imposed on talcum powder, face
powder and shampoo be abolished; and
ii. import duty of between 10% and 20% currently imposed on bedspreads, blankets,
curtains and table cloths be abolished.
These proposals are effective from 4.00 p.m. on 15 October 2010

Hi, I was shopping on eBay US. Let say if I buy a RM800 golf club. Will I need to pay import duty of 10% (i.e. RM80.00) once it arrived at the Malaysian Customs. Delivery Charges must be excluded, rite!! smile.gif

Well, for purchases less than RM500, import duty is not applicable, but does that apply to all kinds of items?? biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Anyone knows... Thanks. laugh.gif

Person who bring the stuff via commercial flight, usually the Kastam will not tahan if the stuff bought are in a small quantity and unwrapped. If you kena tahan also, there's no tax for phone and camera. Only GPS kena tax. While phone and GPS required you to obtain for SIRIM approval. In your case, which is personal usage. You have to apply for SIRIM Special Approval.

Thanks, I have asked them regarding the method to calculate tax and sales tax via e-mail. They reply the next working day. It is quite efficient. Anyone have queries on import tax and sales tax should ask them direct. It is quite helpful.

Hi guys,
I am the noobest noob in custom tax and I have 3 questions:

1) I dont understand the rm500 limit, if its rm500 and above we gonna get taxed. This rm500 limit is per item or the total amount of the stuffs that we imported?

2) Im planning to buy a LOT of leather handbags and wallets for gifts and the price definetely would exceeds rm500 for each item. Can I be exampted from the Duty import? Do I still need to pay the sales tax?

3) Im planning to buy a LOT of T-Shirts and Jersey made from cotton. If I were to take off the price tag and folded them and put them together with my own used t-shirt and didnt declare it, is it a good or bad idea to escape from any tax? I could say these t-shirts are my own shirts that I bought from Malaysia.

Hi. Newbie here. I hope this is the right place to ask this question.

I currently live and work Japan and want to send most of my things to Malaysia. I'm hoping to get a job their or in Singapore in August.

I'm leaving Japan in June to go to England to do a training course in July, and then will fly to Malaysia. I'll be sending my things to a cousin's house in Malaysia for storage. I'm a UK citizen.

I'll be sending mostly books, clothes, a computer, monitor, snowboard, and other bits and pieces.

Nothing I have was bought within the last 6 months.

What kind of duty/taxes am I looking at? I've emailed Malaysian Customs, and it's slow going. I don't know what forms I need, what the tariffs/taxes/duties are, etc. I've asked, but as I've said, it's slow going with me emailing them, them replying, me emailing them again because they haven't been clear or haven't answered all my questions...

I've also read somewhere that I have to be in Malaysia to receive the items. Is this true?

Also, I'm supposed to get an Import Permit from the Energy Commission for my electrical devices. Where do I get that from and where can I find the forms? I can't find anything on the internet.

I will be sending my things either via a private shipping company (by sea), or via the post office (by sea/surface mail).

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

i'm curious between sales tax and duty.

i plan to import clothes from china, more than 500, but i wonder what if i separate the shipment by a couple of days into less than 500 at a time, would it still be taxed? what does it mean by 10% sales tax anyway?

As you know there are many email in and out at Kastam. You need to fill K1 form. Yes by law, electrical devices are required to obtain Suruhanjaya Tenaga or Energy Commission approval.

i'm not sure. but what I understand is, for EMS/USPS, it's matter of luck. if kena stop, u have to go to sepang. if DHL/UPS/Fedex, they will calculate the tax and then charge u when delivering to u. u pay cash lor + RM25 handling fee (or something)

sigh that sucks. ebay sellers use mostly usps to deliver. Okay let's say if i use Fedex or DHL (since marshall official website offers either DHL or fedex) and assuming fro ur statement, they will send it to my door but with extra charges am i right? if so, how much will either one of the delivering services charge me? will they notify me how much they will charge before they deliver or only notify me when those headphones arrive?

I'm afraid of hidden charges that will amount to 50% of the items' price or worse, more than the items itself o

Better don't combine taxable and non-taxable items in one parcel, it confused them and they likely tax you all. I have got that experience once, you can argue but they have the final say.

it wont be taxed, but it will be "inspected" if no proper description are written down. and u'd get charged for handling fee or something. just write down "USB DIGITAL PHOTO FRAME" - "COMPUTER ACCESSORY CATEGORY"

How about old goods? My parents (and, perhaps, me too) are moving to Malaysia. So we'd like to bring along amp, speakers, DVD recorder, a 2006 Mac Mini, printer, etc. Will they bother us? I mean, the things are already old, and we don't want to sell them. Yes, if you are moving back (my Mum is) you are allowed to bring your household goods with you, but that seems quite troublesome, and would they accept it if we fly there and bring just a few items with us, i.e. not use a container?

What about DVDs? I'd like to bring along my DVD collection (I'm pretty proud of what I think is an exquisite collection of arthouse and indie movies, and it was expensive after all), but they are all uncut, and even if they were, Malaysia is extremely conservative (some movies that are okay for children here are something like NC-17 in Malaysia). I don't want to get into any trouble or get them confiscated.

It's still risky if you didnt unpack those thing and still them in original packing. High value item custom will definitely knows.
If you unpack everything I am sure that's going to be fine.
Ok depends on your luck many people have jalan to bring in many, but really have no idea how they do that.

You are planning to import Flexible LED which is under HS8541. There is no import duty require. The sales tax is 10% (if the price more than RM500). The sales tax is a consumption tax charged at the point of import for certain goods. For your information, Flexible LED (and any other LED lamp are) is not a control item yet in Malaysia. For time being, it does not need any approval. If you still want to get your product approved, you can do it on voluntary basis. However, it is recommended for your product to be approved in order to get consumer's trust.

Bro, purchasing above RM500 is subjected to tax. Normally they will only retain large packages but you seem unlucky.

Hi, I would like to suggest you to go to Malaysian Custom Website and ask them the question yourself, either through e-mail or telephone. They will reply your e-mail within 3 working days.

I emailed them and they gave me a link to http://tariff.customs.gov.my/ , instructed me to search under tariff 8507 but I can't find anything related to NiMH batteries....

I don't know how you asked them, but maybe you should just ask them "is there any import duty and sales tax for batteries bought and sent in from US."

That is what I did everytime I have a query.

Its used item, classic car part crazy price selling in Malaysia. At least double! So no choice got to grab from USofA. total price & shipping around US$ 150 which is roughly RM 450 plus minus la... Been trying to use the http://tariff.customs.gov.my/ but I think my keywords are not correct. I cannot seem to find any info. Any tips on how to use it (the website)?

Never mind, Amazon does not ship that item to Malaysia. Damn! So many items that can't be ship to Malaysia due to whatever legal restriction they're saying. Even Adorama.com also does not ship the item to Malaysia due to security precautions and fraud prevention. >_<

Useful thread. let me give my experience with the local kastam.

Digital Camera and lenses : imported a few already from US, UK. None were taxed. There was only once it was held in KLIA customs, but went there to open in front of the customs officer, confirm no tax, only need to pay a RM18 fee (#($*&#*&^&&$#)

iPhone : no tax confirm, but you will need to go to apply for GSM permit from Sirim in Shah Alam. RM100 for a permit of 3 same models. (Must only be used in the same shipping, means you cannot buy 3 from different buyers)

(a)
For future attempts or intention for commercial reasons, when exploring to bring in more or bulk goods into M'sia,

and perhaps ridiculously cheap, as to have a margin for business purposes,

feel free to PM me should you require more options.

[ read: if u intend to do / start a business while capitalizing on strengths in low-cost importation goods, "Handling Custom" authorities, and mediocre taxes n stuff ]




(b)
It can be pertaining for industrial lowest-cost bulk cargo importation via sea-shipping,

or very fast Air-Freighted cargo, even if it is just one small mini parcel.

Like many of the examples earlier, just a phone, a few phones, just a few iPads, some accessories, etc.

[ read: also suitable for the mass public, or individual shopper, who just wants to buy 1 item, and get it fast, hassle free, peace of mind, while waiting at home ]




- ..... basically to avoid all of the above issues from the start.

Hello,

What is the safe number of nail polishes I can bring in?

Nail polish are not taxable but I got a warning letter for importing them. It was less than 50 bottles only.

Will I go to jail?

Hi lads!

I'm going to order some protection, luggage system and some tuning parts for my bike.
Can you tell me what will the tax be?
The approximate value is about 2500 EURO
It can be divided into several parcels with less value in case it'll lower the tax amount.

Need some advice here. I saw on the 1st page that leather bags are import tax free with 10% sales tax. But the thread has not been updated since it was created on Nov 11 2008. Are any changes to this ruling?

What is the tax if my purchases (RM) are:

1) RM 432

and

2) RM 1,440

Exactly!

As all the previous and earlier posts mentioned,
build a business with the right Shipping Partner, let them handle their forte and you concentrate on yours.

In other words, and for business purposes: you'll need a Shipping Partner.

(A)
For small parcel- boxes, SOHO, shopping items, from overseas, TaoBao, Ebay, AliBaba which fancies Air Freighted cargo / Courier; or,
"个人物件 国外购物 空运货品 kotak-kotak kecil untuk penerbangan"

(B)
For Import-Trading Houses, Bulk, For Re-sell Purposes, Commercial, or Home Startup companies,
"物流货运 进口买卖 包双清关 包税免税形式 impot dan pengangkutan keseluruhan sampai pintu"

~~~ you may PM or contact me to explore further, for First Time or Start-Up entrepreneurs, feel free to place your inquires.

TQ.
