Programme Synopsis

From vehicles to buildings, the way we invest in assets could fundamentally change with the arrival of tokenisation and an increasing number of businesses appropriating blockchain technology. 

In view of the above, the Singapore Chartered Tax Professionals (SCTP) together with the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS), presents a live webinar that dives into the details of the e-Tax Guide to aid tax professionals in gaining a better understanding on the income tax treatment of transactions involving digital tokens.

Join in the upcoming webinar that targets the areas of the general tax treatment for transactions involving the use of payment tokens, utility tokens and security tokens. Hear it straight from IRAS’ officers, Ms Karen Goh and Ms Tan You Bao, to stay up-to-date and seize the opportunity to have your doubts clarified too.

The session is also facilitated by Accredited Tax Advisor (Income Tax) Mr Sivakumar Saravan, Senior Partner at Crowe Singapore, as he shares his insights on the business implications in the future of a tokenised economy.
