GST refunds will not be used for govt expenditure

THE Goods and Services Tax (GST) refunds will not be used for other government expenditure in the future, said Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng.

Lim said the summary of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) shows that the previous government has used the GST collections for other purposes and left a RM19.25 billion shortfall in the fund for GST refunds.
