Thread: GST...

  1. #181

    Default Re: GST...

    On the topic of GST, the government is encouraging businesses to register for GST voluntarily.

    The government is giving out up to $5,000 for each registration for the purchase of Accounting Software and Computer Hardware.

    So it looks like more GST to pay for.

    Good suggestion. However generally daily necessities are often lower in cost. Also do you consider cigarette and mobile phone necessities?

    i hope neighbourhood coffee shops wont be buying that system.

    7% of 80 for a cup of coffee... more like 10cents more for convenience sake, that'll make it 10% increase, adding to overall inflation.

    It's simple. If gahmen want to tax GST, then I will spend my money in other countries that charge less or no taxes.

    Simple logic

    Food : lobster, liquor ..no GST? The different between high grade rice and normal rice is about $5/kg. The rich is allowed to buy the rice without GST? Is this fair?

    Lodging : landed property= no GST? 3-rooms HDB flat are being purchased by rich claiming to be poor but driving Merc and sometimes having more than one car. Is this fair?

    Education: Almost free from Primary to JCs....and who pay for the maintenance of the schools e.g. buildings, teachers, lecturers, support staff.. more than 350 Pri, sec and JCs not counting the Universities.
    Do you know that students at private primary and secondary schools pay $2000/mth as school fees. Students from Govt and Govt aided schools only pay a nominal sum..go and find out yourself.

    Are those fair?

    Pse correct me if I am wrong.

    I think it is a question of defining 'helping'.

    To me 'Helping' = FOC.

    To you 'Helping' = $$$$.

    Time=FOC if you sincerely want to 'help'.
