Overview

The Singapore Goods & Services Tax (GST) affects almost all business transactions but errors are still commonly made in the treatment and reporting of the GST. It is important for GST-registered businesses to have an in-depth understanding of the intricacies of the prevailing GST law and regulation. This workshop builds on the fundamentals of our GST law and regulation with a view to addressing specific high-risk areas.

In addition, with the introduction of the Reverse Charge (RC) mechanism and Overseas Vendor Registration (OVR) on 1 January 2020, certain imported services (whether B2B or B2C) would be subject to Singapore GST. It is important for businesses in Singapore to understand how these proposed rules will affect their GST compliance and reporting obligations.

Key Topics Covered:

  • The scope of the imported services that are subject to reverse charge and OVR for Singapore GST purposes
  • How these proposed tax changes affect your GST compliance and GST reporting obligations
  • What are the actionable steps you should consider in preparing for the implementation of these tax changes
  • Overview of the Assisted Self-Help Kit (ASK) as a self-assessment package designed to facilitate the voluntary compliance for your business

  • Review of common GST errors or mistakes made by GST-registered and non-GST registered businesses in Singapore
