Tax-free cars from Proton still available

PETALING JAYA: Different variants of Proton are still available to keen car buyers who want to capitalise on the tax holiday, which is ending soon.

The Sales and Service Tax is set to take effect on Sept 1.

Proton Edar Sdn Bhd chief executive officer and vice-president sales and marketing Abdul Rashid Musa said there were ample Proton cars of different variants to choose from.

“We have about three weeks to enjoy the tax break. This is the time to get a Proton,” he said.

“It is the right time to buy a Proton car and enjoy a good drive with the family,” he said.

Malaysians have been enjoying the tax holiday since the Goods and Services Tax (GST) was zero-rated on June 1.

This has given consumers an opportunity to enjoy buying goods at a reduced rate.

The tax break also saw many automobile companies promoting zero-rated GST prices that brought down the prices of cars.
