    whether with or without gst, you bet the shops would have factored that in.

    no, no difference with warranty.

    GST = GOODS and Services Tax

    buying goods in Singapore, especially if you live in Singapore, without paying GST is illegal.
    Some shops quote you price incl GST.
    Some shops quote you price without GST.

    When comparing prices, just calculate everything with GST. If the store say no need GST, it means the price is already including GST. If store say must add gst, take out your calculator (or handphone) and take the price quoted and multiply it by 1.07. Select the one that with the lowest final price.

    Before you buy anything remember to check the price guides for a reference.

    If buy W/O GST then the shop might try to chop you on filters.Maybe $100 for a $20 filter.So do beware

    BTW,everyone here likes CS.If he/she dosen't like,why be a member?

    Under the GST ACT , all GST registered companies in singapore must qoute their prices inclusive of GST. They are not allowed to qoute you the pre GST price and later tell u to pay $XXX GST more.

    You can report any shops or companies doing that . But having said that , reporting also no use as its so difficult to catch and prove as its often your words against the shop's.

    Generally guide is , if you think you are getting too good a deal , ask again. Got inclusive of GST ? Got include charger and other assessories ? ( Sometimes they will tell u charger need to buy seperate ...... ) and check for original warranty cards !

    Yes there are shops that do not charge GST is because their revenue is short of S$1m per year or something like that. There is a lot of admin on GST, and hence this helps your mom and pop stores not to have such cost of doing business. For a camera shop, I will be surprised if it doesn't have GST, as the turnover will not have make them competitive nor viable to remain in such kind of business. I can understand small hawker, but electronic goods? I am doubtful.

    yeah, selling cameras seldom has revenue short of $1m/yr. I think it will be likely that they have factor the cost in.

    It's actually voted unanimously by the mods team to deregister him, due to his pass history of trolling.
