We also enclose below illustrations that help you to compare and understand better the impact of GST on iPay88 fees:-

Current Without GST

  • Transaction value = RM100
  • iPay88 fees = RM100 X 3% (assume at 3% of transaction value) = RM3.00
  • iPay88 pays back to merchant = RM100 - RM3 = RM97
  • Merchant's profit = RM100 - RM3 = RM97

In GST era if you are non GST registrant & not charging 6% GST on your sales

  • Transaction value = RM100
  • iPay88 fees = RM100 X 3% (assume at 3% of transaction value) = RM3.00
  • GST on iPay88 fees = RM3 X 6% = RM0.18
  • iPay88 pays back to merchant = RM100 - RM3 - RM0.18 = RM96.82
  • Merchant's profit = RM100 - RM3 - RM0.18 (GST not recoverable) = RM96.82

In GST era if you are GST registrant & charge 6% GST on top of your sales

  • Transaction value = RM100 + 6% GST RM6 = RM106 (total receipt included RM6 GST from customer)
  • iPay88 fees = RM106 X 3% (assume at 3% of transaction value) = RM3.18
  • GST on iPay88 fees = RM3.18 X 6% = RM0.19
  • iPay88 pays back to merchant = RM106 - RM3.18 - RM0.19 = RM102.63
  • Merchant - GST payable to Custom = RM6 - RM0.19 (input tax claimable) = RM5.81
  • Merchant profit = RM100 - RM3.18 = RM96.82

In GST era if you are GST registrant & absorb 6% GST in your sales

  • Transaction value = RM94.34 + 6% GST RM5.66 = RM100 (total receipt included RM5.66 GST from customer)
  • iPay88 fees = RM100 X 3% (assume at 3% of transaction value) = RM3
  • GST on iPay88 fees = RM3 X 6% = RM0.18
  • iPay88 pays back to merchant = RM100 - RM3 - RM0.18 = RM96.82
  • Merchant - GST payable to Custom = RM5.66 - RM0.18 (input tax claimable) = RM5.48
  • Merchant profit = RM94.34 - RM3 = RM91.34
