No sales tax exemption for CKD Toyota Hilux and Isuzu D-Max, here’s why

Come 15-June, all locally-assembled (CKD) passenger cars will be granted full exemption from the 10 percent sales tax.

The elephant in the room is excise duty, which ranges between 75 percent to 105 percent depending on engine capacity and body type. Excise duty app
