Rikvin Provides GST Singapore Filing Services

A tax imposed on imported goods and services in Singapore is the Goods and Services tax collected by Singapore’s taxing authorities, IRAS. In other countries, it is known as Value-Added tax.

The current rate of GST is 7% and it covers all supplies of services and goods available in Singapore. Its only exemptions are the sales and leases made from residential properties and the provision of most financial services in Singapore.

There are two types of GST registration that happen in Singapore: compulsory and voluntary.

Rikvin proffers assistance to companies in a few ways. It can assess the company and determine whether there exists a ground for it to have a compulsory registration for GST. If the company is not obliged, Rikvin can still aid in weighing the advantages and drawback of having a voluntary registration.

“If a company’s turnover is more than S$1 million annually, such company is required to register with IRAS for GST,” says Rikvin’s female business consultant, “if the turnover is below that margin, the company may voluntarily register for GST.”

After the registration, the company shall be given an exclusive GST number and it shall be authorized to collect GST from its clients for every good purchased and every service availed.

“The collected GST tax from clients by the companies is called the output tax, which is remitted to IRAS,” she utters, “while the GST incurred by the company upon its own purchases and expenses is known as the input tax.”

Companies can claim input tax if the conditions for claiming such as set by IRAS itself are met. This mechanism shall make certain that the only value-added is taxed at corresponding stage of a supply chain.

She adds: “A GST-registered company is required to submit its GST return to IRAS after the prescribed accounting period, which is set on a quarterly basis. In the GST return, both the output and input taxes within the accounting period are declared by the company.”

The difference between the output tax and the input tax is termed as the net GST payable to IRAS or refundable by IRAS.

Meanwhile, a company that chooses to register voluntarily shall remain registered for two years after the GST comptroller approves its application.

“Many companies decide to do the voluntary registration so they can claim back the GST input tax they incurred during their official business purchases,” the business consultant chimes, “when the GST rate increases, it is also sensible to voluntarily register to claim back the GST input tax.”

Rikvin can also register a company for GST and help in its preparation of documents for filing and remittance. As a business solutions creator, it offers compliance requirements such as the annual returns and income tax return.
