Programme Synopsis

To level the GST playing field for all services consumed in Singapore, the Minister for Finance announced in Budget 2018 that a reverse charge regime will be implemented from 1 Jan 2020 to tax imported services.

On 22 August 2019, the IRAS released their latest e-Tax Guide providing some much-needed clarity to the implications and interpretation of the proposed rules.

This workshop aims to provide participants with an understanding of the following: -

  • A recap of the general partial exemption rules in Singapore, which will provide the building blocks for a sound understanding of the Reverse Charge and its implications 
  • Applicability and corresponding implications of the Reverse Charge including the relevant compliance and reporting obligations
