Programme Synopsis

Do you know a taxpayer is not to be taxed unless the taxing statute's words clearly impose the tax upon him/her? How does interpreting Singapore tax statutes in light of common law rules on statutory interpretation affect the taxpayers?

However, you should be aware that there is no universally accepted view as to the precise nature of tax law, and there is even a view that there is no overarching tax regime. That there are competing views in this area is of little surprise.

This session will enable you to manage your tax risk confidently by providing a good understanding of your fundamental tax rights (entitlements). This program is a mix of practical experience and academic knowledge.
