About the workshop

Withholding tax is a tax collection mechanism to withhold income tax from non-residents with the onus of collection imposed on the payer. Amidst rising cross-border transactions, it is important to identify which payments are subject to Singapore withholding taxes, understand the implications of non-compliance and adopt practical steps in managing compliance obligations. Join us in this workshop where we will share practical tips in determining whether a payment is subject to Singapore withholding tax. Gain hands-on experience in completing the Form IR37.

We will also highlight common mistakes made by payers in their fulfilling of the withholding tax obligations. Our case studies will illustrate typical challenges and pitfalls that may arise in dealing with withholding tax, giving you a better understanding of issues and how to overcome them.
