“Microphone for SLR camera, video camcorder is subjected to 10% sales tax in Malaysia.” Err… I just knew it after double confirmed with Royal Malaysian Customs Department. My newly purchased Azden SMX-10 Stereo Microphone which imported from United States was subjected to 10% sales tax. Initially, I thought all photography equipments like camera, flashes, lens and including microphone are non-dutiable goods. Guess that I am wrong… (Check out ~ Free duty (non-dutiable) goods in Malaysia)
Most of my photography and videography equipments which I cannot find in Malaysia were imported from US. None of them were subjected to any sales or duty tax. But only this time, Azden SMX-10 Stereo Microphone that I got from B&H Photo Video as usual… Will be clever next time by asking Royal Malaysian Customs Department first before making any import purchase.
