top up 12% to your commercial property. Once negotiate reduce 6% to give buyer happiness. Then another 6% will consider registrant 's gxd

If seller is individual, selling commercial/industrial property below a certain amount of transactions a year, both purchaser & seller doesn't have to pay GST.

If the seller is developer or GST-company, then you'll have to let your customer know up front that the selling price is RM106k, not RM100k + 6k gst. Then the customer is mentally prepared to pay that amount. If you tell customer to pay an extra 6% after finalizing the deal, he will ask you to fly kite.

I think she referring to the GST for the agent professional fee.

Some sellers / owners like to take advantage from agent negotiators.

Just speak out the truth and acknowledge the buyer about this. It will helps out alot. Buyers don't like to have a hidden figures.

Agree with you.

For my opinion, inform the owner upfront about all the fee and charge, usually good owner will not have big issue with the 6% GST to get your good service.

Most of the owner know about it. Just they dont like to pay. Coz they used to cut agent fee as usual.

agree with @yunsyn statement... this is the fact, and I have seen some agent asking the buyer or tenant to pay the GST... well it all depends on the deal that the buyer / tenant is getting (if they are buying or renting the property below market value most of them would agree) 

and it should never be paid by agents though, having said that our commission are already very low nowadays.

If the commission payable to the agent goes undeclared to the Property Agency where the agent represents... Will the taxman able to find out eventually?
