KUALA LUMPUR - Hasrat kerajaan supaya projek perumahan baharu disediakan kemudahan Internet merupakan usaha awal ke arah menjadikan Malaysia sebuah negara maju dan mempunyai kemudahan fasiliti komunikasi yang lengkap kepada masyarakat.

 

Timbalan Presiden Gabungan Persatuan-Persatuan Pengguna Malaysia (Fomca) Mohd Yusof Abdul Rahman berkata, penyediaan kemudahan internet seharusnya menjadi  kewajipan pemaju di setiap kawasan perumahan kerana ia kini merupakan keperluan kepada semua.

 

Kerana itu apabila Kementerian Komunikasi dan Multimedia (KKMM) merancang menggubal satu rang undang-undang (RUU) bagi mewajibkan setiap perumahan dan bangunan baharu menyedia akses kepada internet, ia disambut baik banyak pihak.

KUALA LUMPUR: The public should be maximising the zero rated Goods and Services Tax (GST) period by spending more.

 

Such increased spending can benefit the local economy and boost the country’s economic growth.

 

With a GST break on 417 items, the public can enjoy better purchasing power– at least until the Sales and Services Tax (SST) kicks in on Sept 1.

 

The Finance Ministry has stipulated that the zero rated GST be applied for goods and services made in Malaysia as well as those from overseas.

“If food waste were a country, it would be the world’s third largest greenhouse gases emitter, behind the United States and China”. According to Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) assessment on 2011, one-third of all food produced in the world for human consumption never reached the consumer’s table.

 

It is equivalent to 1.3 billion tons of fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy, seafood, and grains rotten on the farm, lost during distribution, or are thrown away in grocery stores, restaurants, and home kitchens. This is also about four times the amount of food needed to feed nearly 800 million people on the planet who went to bed hungry each night.

 

Food wastage does not only pose a huge economic burden and crucial social problem but it gives a huge impact on the climate change. Food waste which ends up in landfills will produce methane gas. Methane gas is one of the greenhouse gases that warming up the Earth.

KUALA LUMPUR: The Sales and Services Tax (SST), set to take effect on Sept 1, is poised to be beneficial for the people as it will enable them to cope with the cost of living better.

 

This single-stage tax is only imposed on manufacturers whereas the six per cent Goods and Services Tax (GST), which was introduced in April 2015 and zero-rated on June 1 this year, was a multi-stage tax payable by all parties in the supply chain.

 

Also, SST is only taxable on 38% of the consumer price index basket of goods and services, compared with GST which covered 60%.
