During the visit, Singapore Customs presented an overview of its Zero GST Warehouse Scheme and related legislation. Imported non-dutiable goods can be stored in a Zero GST Warehouse pending re-export. The GST on the imported goods will be suspended as long as the goods remain in the warehouse.
Datuk Subromaniam in turn shared RMCD's tax suspension schemes. The meeting underscores close bilateral ties between the two customs administrations.
While in Singapore, the delegation also visited the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore to exchange views on GST implementation.
