Reimbursements and disbursements are often reviewed by IRAS during any audit process. The updated e-Tax Guide issued by IRAS provides more clarity on the GST Reimbursement and Disbursement of Expenses. With the updated e-Tax Guide, IRAS expects GST-Registered Businesses to have a sound understanding of the rules to determine the correct GST treatment.
Understanding the differences between reimbursements and disbursements is essential as they are treated very differently for GST reporting purposes. The incorrect treatment could result in underpayment of GST and possible imposition of penalties.
This webinar will give you a better clarity and understanding on the GST treatment of reimbursement and disbursement. Through the use of practical scenarios, exercises and case studies, you will also know how to determine the right treatment of GST for the recovery of expenses.
