一名本地男子从马来西亚入境时,企图逃避370多元的消费税,而被海关官员发现,被处以3700元的罚款。

新加坡海关在Facebook发文称,一名34岁的新加坡男子上个星期四在兀兰关卡入境时,刻意低价申报了他在马来西亚购买的200件长裙的价值,试图躲避消费税,而被海关人员截停。

文告说,男子购买这些长裙是要在本地售卖,而他申报的价值只是真实价格的七分之一,企图蒙混过关。最终被处于应缴税款的10倍,也就是3700元的罚款。

The officers found that the value declared by a 34-year-old Singaporean man for more than 200 long dresses bought in Malaysia was too low and suspected that it was an attempt to evade GST.

Further investigations revealed that the actual value was about seven times higher than the amount declared by the man. The dresses were meant for sale in Singapore, and the man had under-declared the value of the dresses in an attempt to maximise his profits.

The amount of GST evaded amounted to over $370. The man was issued with a composition sum of $3,700 for under-declaring the value of the items brought into Singapore.

It is the responsibility of travellers to make accurate and complete declarations of all taxable items brought into Singapore. Under the Customs Act, any person who fail to declare or make an incorrect declaration of taxable goods may be compounded up to 10 times the amount of duty and/or GST evaded, or charged in Court.
