The half-day seminar on Corporate Tax & GST Compliance of Logistics Industry organized by the association on 06 November 2014 at the Employment and Employability Institute attracted more than 75 participants, mostly from member-companies.

The presentations were marked with real cases from file.  Sharing with an engaging audience   were officials from the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS) namely Ms Ang Siok Peing – Principal Tax Officer, Corporate Tax Division and Ms Rachel Xiao – Senior Tax Auditor, Goods & Services Tax Division.

The topics include corporate tax filing obligations, PIC enhancement, GST compliance of logistics industry as well as common mistakes made by logistics businesses. The cases relate directly to the works of the participants and the Q&A session was most lively.  Several misconceptions and issues on the topics were raised and addressed. Feedbacks received were generally positive and encouraging.

The participants found the half day programme insightful, beneficial and relevant to their work. Many were seen continuing their discussions with the IRAS officials after the event came to a close in the evening.
