    Income tax calculations for individuals and corporations

    Attend to IRAS queries on tax matters for legal entities and individuals

    Tax-related issues may arise from time to time since the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS) regularly releases tax advisory in Singapore and other directives. In line with this, it’s best to have experts who can extensively attend to them, without wasting time in the process.

    Estimated income by the company

    All Singapore-based companies are legally required to provide Estimated Chargeable Income (ECI). However, some entities are exempt from this specific guideline. Given this factor, it is best to hire specialists capable of handling taxable income and eligible tax expenses. This is necessary because, in addition to declaring ECI, companies must also disclose their revenues on the ECI form. The government has requested this clause since January 2017.

It is a multi-stage tax which is collected at every stage of the production and distribution chain. the GST rate is set at 7%, GST registered companies are required to submit periodical GST return.
