PUTRAJAYA: The due date for filing the goods and services tax (GST) returns has been extended to Aug 14 from July 31, Royal Malaysian Customs Department director-general Datuk Seri Khazali Ahmad said.
In a statement, he said the department would make assessment of the tax payable under Section 43 of the GST Act 2014 if companies registered for the GST failed to submit their returns by the due date.
There would be no further extensions of the date to file the returns, he said, adding the GST taxable period was calculated on a monthly basis.
The deadline for submission of the GST returns for the three-month taxable period from April 1 to June 30 was previously slated for July 31. - Bernama
