'During the tabling of the Budget, the government has agreed to increase RPGT rates on profits generated from disposing real properties and shares from real estate companies after five years.
'However the government is concerned about the people's welfare and wants to ensure Malaysians are not burdened with the RPGT imposed,' he said in a statement today.
In Budget 2019, Lim announced a minimum RPGT that applies perpetually.
The RPGT valve provides protection for hydrostatic drives by reducing the "jerk" caused by sudden reversals.
The RPGT valve functions as a standard adjustable relief valve except that the initial pressure setting is about 2000 psi lower than the maximum relief setting.
Arter said the RPGT valve functions basically the same as a pilot-operated relief valve, the special feature being that the setting of the valve changes as soon as oil flows into the pilot chamber.
He explained that the 5 per cent RPGT
for Malaysians for the sale of properties after five years is not based on the full property price.
He was clarifying his announcement of a 5 per cent RPGT for Malaysians and an increase from 5 to 10 per cent for non-citizens in yesterday's Budget 2019.
The RPGT is currently a tiered tax that ranges from 30 per cent for property sold inside the first year of its date of purchase to zero per cent after five full years of ownership.
