The reintroduction of the sales and services tax (SST) has been the talk of the town for the past weeks and honestly, most Malaysians don’t know what to feel about it as there’s so much fake and inaccurate info about SST being circulated on social media. Hence, our Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng has stepped out to clear the confusion.

According to Sinchew, the items that will be exempted from the SST include, but not limited to, the following:


1. Sardines


2. Dairy products


3. Coffee
