Friday, December 07 2018, 09:00 - 17:00

Programme Objective

Over two decades’ of tax administration, many GST Schemes have developed and it has become one of the unique features of our GST system in Singapore. Do these strings of names such as MES, IGDS, ACMT, AMCS, AMFT, AISS, ARCS, A3PL sound familiar to you?
All such GST schemes are designed with specific purpose to ease compliance and ultimately, GST cash flow of the qualifying businesses. You may have the perception that the entry tests of the scheme are too complex and difficult to be qualified.
The one-day workshop aims to unveil some confusion that some may have on the GST Schemes. Knowing the schemes would be a good start before making an informed decision and taking advantage of the most appropriate scheme.
