Singapore accounting, auditing & tax filing

All Singapore private limited companies have to comply with annual filing and reporting requirements of the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) and the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS).

Within 3 months from the financial year end, a company has to file its Estimated Chargeable Income (ECI) for the Year of Assessment to IRAS. A private company must also submit its Income Tax Return (Form C/C-S) together with supporting documents (i.e. financial statements, tax computation) before 15 Dec for e-filing.

We not only have your company stay fully compliant with filing obligations, but also provide you with a clear picture of your company's financial position on an accurate and timely basis.
