The good news is out for prepaid users in the country. Prepaid reloads which have recently been charged extra after the implementation of GST would see its priced reduced according to its pre-GST price.

This means that telcos will need to absorb the tax instead of passing the 6% tax over to the consumer as they intended after the implementation of GST started last 1st April.

Customs department director-general Datuk Seri Khazali Ahmad has also confirmed that his department would take action towards any telco not willing to follow their directive, which is to retain the price of prepaid reloads.

That said, your prepaid reloads should be charged with GST included starting 1st May, with RM10 prepaid reloads already inclusive of the GST tax.
