GST: What It Means for Singapore and Its People
Goods and Services Tax (GST) was introduced in 1 April 1994 as part of a larger tax restructuring exercise in Singapore. Since then, the lives of many Singaporeans were affected in one way or another. Similarly, businesses in Singapore were not spared from the many implications brought about by the GST.
Join us for an interactive session as we explore the rationale for GST and analyse key GST trends. Listen in on the perspectives of practitioners and hear from fellow participants on what their thoughts are on how to manage GST, which is definitely under the limelight in today’s tax world.
Event Fees: Complimentary
