AscentiaTax Services Pte Ltd is proud to present "2018 Singapore Budget" seminar for its clients and the public.

Describing Budget 2018 as practical, prudent and forward-looking, Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong said he liked its emphasis on giving lower-income families a leg-up, not through a once-off hand-out, but "making real investment in the next generation."  As the eight-day debate on the Government's spending plans for the coming financial year drew to a close, history was made. The 530 questions raised were allocated 52 hours, the longest in the past five years. Let us look into the highlights of this marathon-debated Budget and announcements post-budget and not get distracted by the pending GST hike.

Around Budget time, the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore released the 5th revision of the Singapore Transfer Pricing Guidelines on 23rd February 2018. These guidelines and legislation are effective from Year of Assessment 2019. What do these changes mean for you, and your operations in Singapore? Let’s hear from Dr Sowmya.

Singapore has an extensive network of 21 implemented Free Trade Agreements (FTA) with 32 trading partners. Are you informed about how the FTAs affect your business.  Lastly, we have invited, Ms Angelia Chew to share with us a case study on how a small and medium enterprise could make use of FTAs to gain import duty benefits.
