DiGi waits for MCMC’s decision on 6% prepaid service tax

DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd is waiting for the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), to make a concrete decision on the service tax for mobile prepaid services.

“To date, there has not been any concrete statement from the MCMC. We are basically waiting for it,” DiGi’s head of market operations and partnerships, Moharmustaqeem Mohammed said.

The decision to pass on the six percent service tax to mobile prepaid users by telcos had been deferred from July 1 to Sept 1 after industry players met with the regulator.

Speaking to reporters after the launching of ‘Super Reload Social Promosi Impian Buddyz’ in Shah Alam today, Moharmustaqeem said debates were still going on ithin the industry.

“If they say it goes we need to build a plan towards it, if they say ‘no’ then it is status quo,” he said.
