What is GST?
Singapore’s Goods and Services Tax (GST), in fact, is a consumption tax levied on import of goods in Singapore as well on the supply of all kinds of goods and/or services in Singapore, unless they are exempt or zero-rated. GST is nothing but an indirect tax which is expressed as a percentage. Singapore’s GST is levied at the rate of 7% of the selling price of goods and services. The end-user is usually the ultimate payee of GST.
Being a GST registered company, you will enjoy claiming 7% of input tax from IRAS for business expenses or purchase incurred by you. However, the downside is that you will need to collect output tax from your clients for revenue generated by sales of your goods and/or services.
In Singapore, it is compulsory for businesses with the turnover exceeding million per year to register for Goods and Services Tax.
If you wish to enjoy the benefit of being GST registered even though you do not exceed million in turnover, you may apply for voluntarily GST registration.
Reporting of GST is normally done on a quarterly basis for businesses who are GST registered. GST preparation can be daunting to business owners who may not have the expertise to do it themselves and they may risk facing unnecessary penalties from IRAS for erroneous GST submission.
