Tax 101 Series: Group Relief (On Demand)


Group relief (GR) enables companies to deduct unutilised capital allowances/ trade losses/ donations of one company from another company's assessable income in the same group.

This session deals with the definition of a "group of companies", including the treatment of tax losses and explains the priority of transferors, claimants and loss items in situations where there are multiple transferors or claimants. "Tax planning is all about long-term thinking." Understanding your fundamental tax rights (entitlements) will allow you to manage your tax risk (and saving tax legally) with confidence.

IRAS has recently published a ruling related to related parties within the meaning of sections 34D and 13(16) it is timely to explore this topic. Our Tax 101 series is aimed at tax and non-tax trained junior executives or anyone who has an interest in understanding the Singapore Tax system. This session is a mix of practical experience and academic knowledge.
