Comprehensive Guide on Singapore corporate tax – offered and explained by Rikvin, Singapore’s leading company registration firm and business solutions provider.
Singapore Corporate Tax System Singapore - a global city popular for its traits of trust, knowledge, advanced technology, established economy and competitive tax rates. It is also a world-class city, where entrepreneurs prefer to conduct business or invest. Rikvin, leading corporate solutions provider in Singapore discusses one of the traits of Singapore, its reasonable, competitive and business-friendly tax rates. “There are favorable tax benefits to be considered a tax resident by the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS),” Rikvin said. “A company is considered as resident in Singapore if the control and management of the business is exercised in Singapore. Although the term "control and management" is not defined explicitly by authorities, a generally accepted consensus is that it refers to the policy level decision making at the level of Board of Directors and not the day-to-day decision making and operations,” Rikvin continues. Rikvin also highlighted that the Singapore government has declared a full tax exemption for newly incorporated companies in order to encourage local entrepreneurship provided they qualify for the following conditions: it is incorporated in Singapore, it is a tax resident of Singapore, it has no more than 20 shareholders throughout the basis period relating to that year of assessment, and all its shareholders are individuals. Finally, Rikvin also discussed the common mistakes made by corporate taxpayers including: understatement of income - Businesses should properly account for all the earnings and invoices issued for goods sold or services rendered. Omission of particular receipts or invoices issued amounts to an understatement of income, which is an offence; and claiming deductions for non-deductible expenses - Expenses not incurred for the business such as directors’ private expenses on entertainment, vacation and personal purposes. Businesses should segregate private expenses and exclude them from their claims.
