The GST treatment for transactions related to the medical industry which comprises of healthcare facilities, healthcare professionals, pharmaceutical services and the National Essential Medicines List (NEML) and outsourced services, has been the subject of much discussions for some time now.

While healthcare services provided by government hospitals and clinics are out of scope supplies, those services provided by registered or licensed private healthcare centres such as private hospitals and private medical practitioners through their private clinics, are exempt supplies. There are also several acquisitions and supplies within the private healthcare services such as hospitals and private clinics that are subject to GST at the standard rate of 6%. As a consequence, a private healthcare facility could fall in the category of mixed supply and would need to be registered under the GST Act, 2014 if their taxable supplies exceed RM500,000 per annum. Input tax on acquisitions would then have to be apportioned based on principles approved by Customs.

CCH Executive Events presents a workshop designed for you to obtain a good overall understanding of the application of GST for medical industry. The course will address all the critical issues faced by healthcare professionals including private medical practitioners, clinical psychologists, physiotherapists, dental practitioners and pharmacists.
