Ever been in doubt on claims on capital allowances? 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 legislation. 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 situations. 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).
