Withholding tax requirements may be applicable on payments to non-resident companies and individuals on their income sourced in Singapore. As the Singapore taxpayer is held accountable by IRAS to make the correct withholding tax deduction(s), tax penalties for non-compliance can be hefty.
Join us at a half-day seminar where you will learn how to effectively manage your organisation’s withholding tax risks and obligations, as well as avoid potential tax penalties. Gain a better understanding of challenges and pitfalls that may arise when dealing with withholding tax as our tax specialists share the basic local requirements in this area.
