    • Each January, our Staff ask our Client for an accurate and complete trial balance and general ledger. To help with this task, some of our Clients’ ask Healy Consultants Group PLC to complete book-keeping on their behalf;
    • Following receipt of a trial balance, our in-house Accounting and Tax Department will prepare draft financial statements for our Client review and approval;
    • Our Client and Staff work together to ensure the financial statements comprise transparent notes that explain the business activity of the Singaporean LLC, especially relating to annual corporation tax. IRAS and ACRA appreciate the receipt of quality financial statements, thus minimizing the probability of a tax audit;
    • Each February and for tax resident companies only, our in-house Accounting and Tax Department must submit to IRAS the Estimated Chargeable Income (ECI) report;
    • By 1 march of each year, our Client signs the financial statements and corporation tax return;
    • Within a month thereafter, our in-house Accounting and Tax Department submit the legal annual return (click link) to ACRA;

  • Other relevant information

    1. Your company does not need to file ECI in any Year of Assessment (YA) when both the following criteria are met:
    2. Your company is taxed on the income earned in the preceding financial year. This means that income earned in the financial year 2020 will be taxed in 2021. In tax terms, 2021 is the Year of Assessment (YA), as it is the year in which your company’s income is assessed to tax.
    3. To assess the amount of tax, IRAS looks at the income, expenses, etc. during the financial year. This financial year is known as the ‘basis period’. The basis period is generally a 12-month period preceding the YA.
    4. Dormant and small companies are exempt from an independent statutory annual audit if they fulfil the following conditions:
      • They are private company (owned by 50 members or less) for the financial year.
      • They meet at least two of the following three quantitative criteria for the immediate past two financial years:
        • Total revenue not more than SG$10 million;
        • Total assets not more than SG$10 million;
        • Total number of employees not more than 50.
    5. Late filing penalty for a Singapore company is SG$300. For the subsequent 3 months, the late penalty doubles to SG$600;
