Windfall Tax


Malaysia Is introducing windfall tax,to fill up its treasury.
The hike in gasoline by 41% has created much discontent.
Every commodity sees a surge in its prices.
Right from vegetables to cement there is a steep rise.
Malaysians have started feeling the pinch’
Stocks are trading low.
Now the new entry windfall tax.
Oil Palm plantations in Peninsular Malaysia are to pay 15%,over and above CPO price-2000RM.
For Instance
Price of CPO-3500RM
FIXED pRICE -2000RM
difference—-1500RM
Tax 15% of RM 1500=225RM
The plantations paid cess last year to supplemnt cooking oil prices.
Now there is no scarcity in cooking oil supply.
The rise in cooking oil price remains the same
Will the government pass shotfall benefits to plantations ,if the CPO trades below 2000RM.?
Strange are the ways of the governments.
