They say that the only certainties in life are death and taxes. No matter how grim or humorous that might seem, it goes without saying that taxes form a large part of the headache that one needs to go through if one is earning sufficient income or if one owns a corporation. It is definitely something that you cannot run away from and in fact, need to be extremely careful to ensure that your assessments are filed accurately. Most people would find it a daunting and complicated process simply because there are many exceptions and exclusions – the layman would not be able to bend his mind around all the rules involved!
Of course, it would be a more tedious procedure if you own a corporation or if you have your business affairs to handle. Something that crops up once in a while would be tax disputes. This would come to head if something wrong was to be found in your yearly assessment. One thing that you can always utilise in order to avoid tax disputes in Singapore would be by ensuring all your documents are always in order. In this way, even if you are called upon to resolve the dispute, you would have everything already in hand. Another thing would be to ensure that you have a healthy relationship with your tax officer. This does not mean that you have to be over-friendly with them. This simply means that the better your relationship is with him, the easier the resolution would be.
While not everyone is certain of the benefit of spending a bit more money on consultancy firms, others would have found that in the long run, such a move would definitely benefit the business owner and the corporation itself. Not only do you avoid tax disputes, you are also able to get the full benefit of having someone who is knowledgeable about tax rules and regulations to assist you while you are filing your tax assessments. Such a relationship is definitely worth nurturing.
