KOTA KINABALU – Servay Hypermarket in Kota Kinabalu has a new receipt format of purchasing due to Good and Services Tax (GST) implementation, today.
Its Assistant Manager, Kelvin Chang said there will be a mark symbol on the receipt for all the 500 items that listed on GST while there is no sign symbol for the product that are excluded from the tax.
“This is the way we help the customers to differentiate the price of GST items and normal price without GST,” he said.
“The new receipt implementation will disseminate awareness to public that not all items are on GST,” he said.
Minister of Community Development and Consumer Affairs, Datuk Jainab Ahmad Ayid agreed with the format of the new receipt that has a mark symbol for every GST product on the list.
“I totally agree with this as it will help the customer to notice which product that has a price hike due to GST while other item remain the same,” she added.
Kelvin said they also teach and supervise customers who receive their purchasing receipt at the counter.- By Saila Saidie/Sayangsabah
