GST has been in place now for around 17 years now and yet surprisingly, taxpayers registered for GST are making mistakes in its GST treatment of transactions and GST reporting.
As GST is a transactional tax, GST errors are usually recurring in nature. Hence, any GST issues and/ or errors which are left undetected often amount to a large payable sum by the taxpayer, not to mention the possible imposition of penalties and/ or fines.
You should carefully consider your current approach to the preparation and submission of your GST returns. Particularly, with regard to how are the GST treatments of transactions determined and how is the information from your systems retrieved and translated to the figures reported on your GST return.
If your staff have been completing GST returns based on a process that was previously set up by multiple predecessors, you may want to assess their actual knowledge in respect of understanding the underlying basis of why certain transactions have been treated a particular manner for GST purposes.
It would be beneficial to send your staff involved in the GST preparation process for this course to act as a “refresher” course and also to provide you with new developments – as you are aware, there are constant changes every year to the GST legislation and hence, it is crucial to ensure that your staff are up to date with all updates where applicable to your business.
This course will provide you with the fundamental knowledge required to effectively administer your businesses GST and at a minimum, provide you with enough knowledge such that you are able to identify and raise queries on potential problematic transactions that you may come across.
Who should attendOur GST workshops are suitable for financial managers, accountants and accounting staff involved in the preparation and/ or review of the GST returns prior to submission to the IRAS. The IRAS has continued to update its programme for GST compliance with several newly launched programmes such as the GST Assisted Self-Help Kit, the Assisted Compliance Assurance Programme as well as e-tax guides and best practices.
