ESTIMATED CHARGEABLE INCOME


 ECI, also known as Estimated Chargeable Income (ECI), is an estimate of a company’s chargeable income for a Year of Assessment (YA). Every company is required by IRAS to submit an ECI within 3 months from the end of each financial year. However, with effect from YA 2013, a new administrative concession applies to companies with a financial year ending October 2012 or after.

We assist in the preparation and filing of Estimated Chargeable Income (ECI) at only $S 30.    
Why and when should companies file the ECI?

ECI data facilitates policy-making on a macro level, as well as the assessment of industrial performance. Furthermore, the filing of the ECI is one of the annual corporate compliance requirements in Singapore. It must be submitted to IRAS, the national tax authority within 3 months after the end of the financial year.

Administrative concession

Companies with a financial year ending October 2012 will not be required to file ECI for a particular year if:

  • they do not earn more than S$1 million for the financial year and
  • their ECI is NIL .
Failure to comply with filing of ECI

If a company has failed to comply with the ECI requirement, IRAS shall issue a Notice of Assessment (NOA) based on its estimation of its income. The company then has one month from the date of IRAS’ NOA to submit its written objection if it does not agree with IRAS’ estimated assessment. Otherwise, the NOA is recognized as final.

 

 

 

GST REGISTRATION


Goods and Service Tax (GST), similar to the Value Added Tax (VAT) in many countries, is a consumption tax on most domestic goods and services. Singapore’s GST is currently at 7%.

GST is exempted for the sale and lease of residential properties and most financial services. Export of goods and international services are not subject to GST. GST is collected by suppliers of domestic goods and services who are registered with the Comptroller of GST. For the import of goods, GST is collected by Singapore Customs at the point of importation into Singapore.

It is compulsory for businesses to come forward to register for GST when their turnover exceeds $1 million per year. Businesses that do not exceed $1million in turnover may voluntarily register with the Comptroller if it is beneficial to the business. The approval of such registrations is at the discretion of the Comptroller. Companies which are registered for GST will be required to file GST returns on a quarterly basis. Once voluntarily registered, the supplier must comply with the regulatory requirements and stay registered for a minimum of 2 years.

We have the expertise to assist you in the preparation and filing of such returns. Clients do not have to worry on meeting quarterly GST deadlines as we will do the job of tracking the deadlines on behalf of our clients.We will register for GST on your behalf with Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS) and follow up with all queries regarding the registration.
