Astro ada service tax 6%

Terkejut gak aku baca info nie. Teringat masa pembentangan budget 2011 tahun lepas. Memanglah naik 1% dari 5% ke 6%. Tapi xsangka plak Astro termasuk sekali. Untuk Astro start Jan 2011. Sebelum ni mana ada kan.

Service tax increase to 6% from 5%
Service tax rate will be increased from 5% to 6% with effect from 1 Jan 2011. This will impact quite a number of service industry as well as individual consumptions. This may be a temporary measure to increase government revenue while pending the implementation of Goods and Services Tax (GST). You may probably feel the effect of service tax increase, although some said marginal, in 2011 when you visit to the restaurants, or when you pay your telephone bills.

ASTRO fee will be subject to service tax 6%
ASTRO monthly subscription fee will be increased by a service tax of 6% with effect from 1 Jan 2011. Service tax of 6% will be imposed on paid satellite broadcasting services in which this service was not subject to service tax previously.

Huhuhu...Saya duk kira2 sebulan bil astro saya RM71.oo, so kalau 6% dalam RM 5. Banyak tu kene bayar dalam setahun. Ni en suami nak tukar ke Astro Byond plak. Dah kene tambah RM20 dalam bil. So taxnya dah jadi dalam RM 6. huhuhu....

Tu kira kasar jerk. Nanti balik tgk baliklah bil astro. Bln ni dah dapat ker? Tu belum lagi kira kalau lmbt bayar sket jer potong terus. Then bila nak sambung kene charge dalam RM20 plak tu. Tapi bila time ujan still xdapat coverage jugak. Dari dulu sampai skang sama jerk. Xde pembaharuan part tu. Bila ujan xleh tgk tv. Ada ke patut????

Ni nak charge tax tapi servis nan adonya. Still xleh tgk astro time hujan. Dahlah Malaysia ni hujan sepanjang tahun. Bukan bermusim.
