Furnishing of Sales Tax and Service Tax ("SST") Return – SST-02 Return and Payment of SST Due
Any taxable person under the Sales Tax Act 2018 and the Service Tax Act 2018 shall furnish the SST-02 Return and make payment of the SST due not later than the last day of the month following the end of that taxable period.
Whilst the taxable period of a taxable person is generally a period of two months, some businesses have been assigned with a one month taxable period for the first taxable period to coincide with the financial year end of the business (i.e. January, March, May, July, September and November). Under such instance, the first SST-02 Return and any payment of SST is due by 31 October 2018.
The Royal Malaysian Customs Department (“RMCD”) has made an announcement on mySST website that the online SST Return and payment go live on 1 October 2018.

It is important for SST registered business to ensure that the filing of the SST-02 Return and any payment of any SST due is made by the due date to avoid compound, fine and/ or late payment penalties.
