This is the PM session of our ONE-DAY workshop.

The much-anticipated GST rate calibration from 7% to 8% has happened on 1 January 2023. To facilitate this, GST registered businesses (“GRB”) have for the periods covering 1 January 2023 to 31 March 2023 encountered practical concerns from the systems, transaction, and GST reporting levels.

Tagging to above as well as getting GRB ready for the next proposed GST rate calibration starting from 1 January 2024, we will through this timely and highly practical workshop examine and evaluate the area of concerns and address practical question(s) to align with the GST transitional rules.

This unique workshop format offers you the option to attend either the AM, PM or ONE-DAY session.
