IRAS Accounting Software Register

IRAS recognises the importance of accounting software in helping businesses comply with their tax obligations. 

To help you meet your tax obligations, the IRAS’ Accounting Software Register lists the accounting software that are able to meet IRAS’ technical requirements. The owners of the software listed below have provided written declaration to IRAS that their software is compliant with the technical requirements set out in the e-Tax Guide: Guide on Accounting Software for Software Developers (ZIP, 692KB).

List of Software on the Register

You can find the list of software owners and their products here (PDF, 330KB), in alphabetical order.

Usage of Software on the Register

Please note that IRAS has not carried out any form of security testing of the accounting software. You are encouraged to ask the developers for information about the security aspects of the accounting software.

IRAS will not be liable for any losses or damages, loss of income, profit or savings, or indirect, incidental, special, consequential or punitive damages arising from or in connection with the use of any of the above accounting software.

New! Introduction of recommended features for IRAS ASR software 

To further assist businesses in managing their GST compliance, we are working with software developers to introduce some new, non-mandatory features into their accounting software. Such features include GST registration and filing reminders, as well as the automation of GST blocked input tax claims. 

With effect from 1 Jan 2020, GST would be applied on imported services in the context of business-to-business (“B2B”) transactions by way of a Reverse Charge (RC) mechanism, and on imported digital services in the context of business-to-consumer transactions (“B2C”) by way of an Overseas Vendor Registration (OVR) regime, provided that certain conditions are met. We are working with software developers to update their accounting software, in order to cater to RC and OVR transactions. However, as the RC and OVR are expected to affect some businesses only, we will not be making this feature mandatory. 

We have updated our guidelines for accounting software developers so that they can incorporate the above-mentioned features as appropriate. For more details on these features, you may refer to our e-Tax guide: Guide on Accounting Software for Software Developers (ZIP, 692KB).

While the above-mentioned features are not mandatory, accounting software that possess them will be clearly distinguished in our ASR. Other software that do not possess these features will continue to be listed as long as they meet the mandatory requirements. IRAS is currently working with ASR developers on the new features and will update the list of software in the ASR accordingly.  Meanwhile, you may wish to clarify with the software developers directly on whether their software is able to cater for these recommended features.

SMEs Go Digital (SGD) Programme

The SGD programme aims to help SMEs use digital technologies and build stronger digital capabilities to seize growth opportunities in the digital economy. Under this programme, Infocomm Media (ICM) vendors can submit their digital solutions for pre-approval. SMEs that adopt these pre-approved solutions can receive funding support under the Productivity Solutions Grant (PSG). The SGD programme is administered by the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA).

Being listed on the IRAS ASR is one of the criteria for Generic (Accounting Management) solutions to be pre-approved under the PSG. To find out if an ASR listed software is pre-approved under the PSG or to learn more about the grant, please refer to IMDA’s website.

  • If my business purchases a new accounting software, do we need to migrate all the accounting transactions recorded in the existing accounting software to the new accounting software?

    There is no specific requirement for businesses to migrate the accounting transactions recorded in the existing accounting software to the new accounting software. However, after purchasing the new accounting software, businesses must continue to retain and be able to retrieve the accounting transactions that had been recorded in the existing software for at least five years from the Year of Assessment or end of the GST accounting period to which it relates. Other business documents associated with these transactional records, such as source documents, accounting records and schedules and bank statements, should be retained accordingly as well.
