Partners registered with the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) are self-employed; hence they must report the income earned from their business operations as business income, not salary. However, while a partnership (not partner) does not pay tax, it still must file an annual income tax return (called the Form P) to show all income earned and business expenses deducted by the partnership during the year. This session deals with the income tax substantive and procedural requirements for partnerships. A detailed discussion of individual partners is beyond the scope of this publication.
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.
