Programme Synopsis

From tax to trials, disputes to appeals, the year of 2019 saw a number of developments in the tax scene. Despite the long-established rules and regulations on income tax, stamp duties and property tax, these remain a source of contention and were played out in 2019.
Join in this upcoming Tax Excellence Decoded session and dive into several of 2019’s notable cases, offering you a closer look at the Court's decisions and an appreciation on the intricacies of various tax laws. Income tax cases such as BZZ v CIT and Allswell Marketing Pte Ltd v Public Prosecutor will be covered.
