Generally, a GST-registered business is required to charge 7% GST on the supply of goods or services made in Singapore. However, the provision of international services and exports of goods can be zero-rated.

Companies may only zero-rate their supply of services if it falls within the description of international services under Section 21(3) of the GST Act.

0% GST can be charged for your supply of goods when you are certain that at the point of supply:

  • The goods supplied will be exported or have been exported; and
  • You have the required documents to support zero-rating

This topic is regarded as one of the more challenging areas of GST. Hence, this workshop will help provide in-depth insights on the essential issues and peculiarities of GST treatment on zero-rated supplies. By using practical examples and case studies, you will get a clear understanding on how to correctly apply zero-rating treatment to avoid common errors and costly penalties.
