KFC says its statement on SST was misinterpreted

Published:

QSR Brands (M) Holdings Bhd, the company that owns the fast-food chain KFC, said its statement with regard to the price adjustment of its products had been misinterpreted.

Specifically, it said the misinterpretation concerns the sales and services tax (SST).

In a statement today, it said the price adjustment had no relation to the SST.

Yesterday, QSR Brand (M) Holdings Bhd in a separate statement said its listed prices were inclusive of six percent SST starting December 2018.

The company's statement today and yesterday are as follow:

KFC's statement on Dec 27, 2018:

We wish to clarify that our statement has been misinterpreted with respect to the SST.

The marginal price adjustment has no relation to the SST, as previously the rate of six percent goods and services tax (GST) was similarly charged to our customers.

To this end, we hope our customers understand our menu has been specially put together to offer value for money options that cater to the different needs of customers.

KFC's statement on Dec 26, 2018:

We wish to clarify that starting from December 2018, our listed prices are inclusive of six percent SST. There are some marginal adjustments to the prices of our products to ensure we are able to continue providing our customers the same quality finger lickin’ good chicken, without compromise.

To this end, we hope our customers understand our menu has been specially put together to offer value for money options that cater to the different needs of customers.

On another note, a post recently circulating on social media comparing Snack and Dinner Plate prices is in relation to our prices from a few years ago. 

Additionally, our Super Jimat Box was never priced at RM12.50 since we launched this Box in 2015.

We thank you for your continued support. Look forward to seeing you again at KFC.
