Our strategic compliance framework guides us in our management of tax compliance. Through this framework, we recognise the need to enhance voluntary compliance while reducing compliance costs of taxpayers. This ensures that Singapore has a fair and sustainable tax system where every taxpayer contributes his fair share of tax. This compliance approach also aligns with our vision to partner taxpayers in nation building and economic development.
We recognise that improving the level of voluntary compliance is the sustainable long term outcome for overall effectiveness and efficiency of our tax administration. More information on IRAS' Voluntary Disclosure Programme.
As we believe that taxpayers are generally compliant, we seek to enhance the environment that encourages voluntary compliance and builds community confidence in the tax system.
We adopt a risk-based management approach to compliance and tailor programs for different taxpayer segments so as to ensure that taxpayers fulfil their tax obligations with ease and accuracy.
