Dormant companies and exempt private companies (“EPC”) with annual revenue below S$10m could enjoy audit exemption under current Singapore Companies Act, Chapter 50 (the “Act”). These companies have a choice as to whether to have their accounts audited except where the law has prescribed that an audit is still required. This will help many companies reduce their business operating cost.
Companies that qualify for the audit exemption and have chosen not to have their accounts audited can file the unaudited accounts in place of the audited accounts. The unaudited accounts (including notes to accounts) must be accompanied by the Directors’ report and the Statement of Directors and they must be prepared in compliance with the Companies Act and Singapore Financial Reporting Standards. To meet these requirements, we assist our client to prepare unaudited financial statements with professional competence and due care.
A tax computation is a statement showing the tax adjustments to the accounting profit to arrive at the income that is chargeable to tax.
As mandated by IRAS, companies should prepare their tax computations annually before completing the Form C-S/ C. Only companies filing Form C need to submit their audited/unaudited* accounts, tax computation and supporting schedules together with Form C. Companies filing Form C-S are still required to prepare their financial accounts, tax computation and supporting schedules and submit them to IRAS upon request.
Unaudited accounts are accepted if the company is exempted from audit under the Companies Act.
In addition to monitoring and ensuring compliance with relevant legal requirements, a company secretary also has the following responsibilities:
We are responsible that the company is in compliance with its constitution. We also have a duty to draft amendments in accordance with correct procedures.
We are responsible for the co-ordination of the company’s formal decision making and reporting operation, certifying copies of minutes and ensuring that correct procedures are followed, drafting meeting agendas with the chairman.

Process of Striking-Off a Company
Upon approval of a strike off, a Striking Off Notice will be sent to the company at its registered office address, to its directors at their residential addresses and to the IRAS, within 14 days of the receipt of the strike off application.
A period of one month is given in the Striking Off Notice to anyone that may wish to raise any objection to the application.
After the one month period has expired, a notification of the intention to strike off this company off the register in 60 days’ time will be made in the Government Gazette. Any interested person can still raise an objection to the application during this 60 days period.
After the 60 days have expired, a final notification will be made stating that the company has been struck-off the register. The date that the company is struck-off will also be stated in the final notification.
The entire Company striking off process therefore takes about four months.
Aggrieved persons can appeal to the Court for restoration of the company within 6 years (formerly is 15 years).
