Why not CEA or IRAS collect directly from the consumer than ask saleperson to do the work for them

GST is been implemented by our government, it is mandatory for sonsumers to pay.

If we can absorb the GST, can our government bodies, SP services, hospital and retails to absorb the amount of GST too?

Real Estate salespersons are human beings, we need to feed our family and support them too. We dont survive purelly on air intake!

I have a first hand experience of this being a property agent myself. A foreign tenant refused to pay GST and my company told me that I had to absorb it. CEA should uphold the professionalism of property agents by making it mandatory for landlords/tenants/buyers/sellers to foot the GST and not push it to the agents to absorb. In my opinion, the CEA forms should state "GST is payable upon the commission", without option.

I strongly suggest GST as payable by sellers. If we do not have a choice not to pay GST while we shop or dine, why should we now be suffering at absorbing GST for sellers?

It should be standardised.....can people not pay GST when they go to malls or restaurants? Hence the answer is simple...they have to pay GST for the real estate services rendered and CEA should re-enforce this

If the CEA answer is we absorb the GST, can CEA absorb too? It should be a butterfly effect!

Our commission is already shrinking because of its "negotiable" status. Now we have to absorb GST? We may as well work for free.

It's unfair for salesperson to absorb GST.
