Past Event: Tuesday, May 16, 2023

With the rate of GST going up to 9% from 2024 and the increasing focus on tax governance and risk management by the IRAS, businesses cannot afford to be complacent with their GST reporting obligations. Other than understanding the practical application of the GST rules, recognising the common risks and errors in the GST returns can also be a quick way to ensuring that the business finds solutions to remain compliant in its GST reporting. 

Join us in our seminar as we discuss the common GST risks that lie within the business, how businesses are selected for IRAS audits, and how you can address the GST risks and correct past errors. 

Key topics: 

  • Trigger points for IRAS GST audits
  • Common risks and errors in the GST returns
  • Penalties for incorrect GST reporting
  • Managing the GST audit process
  • Voluntary Disclosure Programme
  • Correcting past errors in the GST returns
  • Building a tax control framework for GST reporting

Refreshments will be provided. All food items arranged by The Westin will contain no pork or lard.
