Through the Professional View!

(Our speaker was previously engaged with The Inland Revenue of Singapore)

On 7 April 2014, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill 2014 was passed in the Dewan Rakyat. The Bill will pave the way for GST of 6% to be imposed from 1 April 2015 onwards. 

With less than 8 months preparation time, many businesses are still unaware and uncertain of how GST will impact their business. Many are confused with the complex GST treatments and are unable to get definite answers on how to adhere and comply GST.

Hence, this 1 day workshop is designed to provide you with clear and accurate answers to your GST challenges. Both our speakers have vast knowledge in the GST bill and application. In order to make this workshop worthwhile we ask you to write in your GST areas of concern a week prior to the workshop and we will answer them throughout the workshop.
