Tax 101 Series - Taxation of Companies, Club and Society, Trust


Taxpayers are often queried on the deductibility of expenses incurred in the commencement of a new activity connected with an existing trade or an existing department's expansion. Furthermore, if the expenses incurred for such activities are reflected separately in the accounts, they may become a subject of investigation. Nevertheless, it is a question whether an existing business has been extended or a new business has commenced where a company initiates a new activity.

This session deals with the crucial test of determining whether the company is involved in two separate and identifiable trades of wholly different natures.. This program is a mix of practical experience and academic knowledge.

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.
