Programme Synopsis

Following the success of the first and second editions, the Tax Academy of Singapore is proud to announce the upcoming launch of the 3rd edition of The Law & Practice of Singapore Income Tax. An authoritative and comprehensive reference book on taxation of income, this edition aims to explain the fundamental changes to the tax landscape and updates on the Second Edition with a comprehensive coverage and analysis of case law developments, administrative guides and practical application of the income tax law, tax treaties and international tax agreements.

In conjunction with the launch of the book, we are pleased to present the first of a series of webinars where the authors will give an overview of what is covered in their respective chapters and expound on some of the topics. In addition, webinar participants will be entitled to a special 15% discount off the price of the book!

To kick off this series, we have Mr Allen Tan (Head of Tax, Trade and Wealth Management, Baker McKenzie Wong & Leow), and Mr Robin Ng (Director, International Tax and Relations-Policy, IRAS) to share from the chapter on “Exchange of Information and International Tax Agreements”. They will discuss the key frameworks through which tax authorities of different jurisdictions work with each other by conducting exchange of information (‘EOI’), with a focus on developments that impact Singapore.
