Programme Synopsis

In this module, we will debate the simplicity of the Singapore GST system. If you believe GST is easy, why did IRAS launch the Assisted Compliance Programme (“ACAP”) and the Assisted Self-Help Kit (“ASK”) in 2011?  Why were they several major amendments to our GST legislation and regulations in the past few years?  If you think you can ask IRAS for a waiver of penalty for non-compliance with the GST law because this is your first offence, think again.

In this module, participants will have the opportunity to grasp a deeper understanding of the various key GST concepts so that they are able to immediately apply what they learn in their workplace. Some participants had taken immediate action to relook their GST transactions after attending the workshop and consider voluntary disclosures, where appropriate.

As GST issues can be dynamic, participants will learn a step-by-step approach from the workshop facilitator and be introduced a proven work template to enable them to analyse different kinds of GST issues.  Feedback from the past participants is that they were able to apply this work template to analyse their companies’ GST issues very quickly.

As this is an advanced GST workshop, participants will be assumed to have equipped with a basic understanding of the GST concepts.
