Ever been in situations where there is no straightforward interpretation? Ever been in doubt on claims on capital

Join the Singapore Institute of Accredited Tax Professionals (SIATP) in kicking off a series of technical group
discussions covering various contemporary tax issues.

Come and hear first-hand how other taxpayers have approached uncertainties in the interpretation and application of tax

Come and join Mr Leung Yew Kwong, Tax Partner, WongPartnership LLP, in a lively discussion as he highlights the finer
points of not one but two of his recent cases with fellow tax professionals.

The first case of ACC v Comptroller of Income Tax (2010) covers the issue of withholding tax on interest rate swap
payments. This landmark case changed the perception that tax has to be withheld on interest rate swap payments in all

In the second case, the classification of an asset and the company’s entitlement to capital allowances are explained and
presented through the case of ZF v Comptroller of Income Tax (2010).
