GST administration in Singapore has evolved rapidly, specifically so in recent years. IRAS now has a deeper understanding of the commercial environment, through the utilisation of technology to gain an overview, as well as detailed analysis of targeted GST registered businesses (GRBs).
While most of us have been telecommuting since the circuit breaker in early April 2020, technology advancement has supported the intensity of GST audit focus performed by IRAS on routine areas as well as targeted industries.
This webinar session is therefore timely as the presenter would be sharing how GRBs should stay relevant in revisiting the fundamentals, minimising common GST gaps, as well as getting an update on GST consideration tagged to Covid-19 related expenses and rental waivers.
