Programme Synopsis

In its role in assisting GST-registered businesses to be GST Compliant voluntarily, IRAS, as a tax administration launched two self-help programmes for differing segments of the GST paying community - Assisted Self-help Kit (ASK) and Assisted Compliance Assurance Programme (ACAP).
Apart from providing a suite of benefits and incentives, it also specifies, as a pre-requisite with effect from 1 Jan 2013, for applicants for some of the GST Schemes to perform either an Annual Review using ASK or to commit to participating in ACAP. 
IRAS' recent effort in pushing selected corporations to participate either in ACAP or ASK signals an expectation that the willingness of undertaking self-review would soon be an indicator for a compliant GST business. This half-a-day session aims to share with you the insights of ASK, so that you could be better prepared and stayed ahead of this situation while choices of products to self-manage GST risks are still open for consideration.

Programme Outline

• What are GST Risks meant to you or your business;
• Why the need to self-manage GST risks;
• What ASK could offer;
• The Insights and tips in applying ASK.
