    1. Is it compulsory for newly incorporated companies to use the New Company Start-Up Kit?

      No, it is not compulsory to use the New Company Start-Up Kit. However, we strongly encourage newly incorporated companies to use this kit to learn about their filing obligations with IRAS and ACRA.
    2. Can more than 1 director or staff of my company use the New Company Start-Up Kit?

      Yes, more than 1 director or staff of the company may use the New Company Start-Up Kit. However, if the responses (e.g. financial year end) provided differ, you may receive differing responses (e.g. different filing timelines). 
    3. Will information provided in the New Company Start-Up Kit be updated in IRAS' or ACRA's records?

      As this is a self-help kit, information provided will not be updated in IRAS’ or ACRA's records. For Corporate Income Tax matters, companies need to go to mytax.iras.gov.sg to update their particulars and to file their Corporate Income Tax Returns.
    4. Will I be able to retrieve information I have earlier provided in the New Company Start-Up Kit? Can I update information previously provided in the New Company Start-Up Kit?

      No. Information provided in the New Company Start-Up Kit cannot be accessed again after you have ended your session. If you wish to change your responses after exiting, you will need to re-access the New Company Start-Up Kit.

      If you wish to change your responses within the same session, click the 'Edit' button in the summary page. The filing timeline and 'Next Steps' section will be updated based on your modified responses.

    5. What can I expect after accessing the New Company Start-Up Kit?

      If you have provided your email address to receive filing reminders, an email will be sent to you 1 month prior to your first Estimated Chargeable Income (ECI) and first Form C-S/ Form C-S (Lite)/ Form C filing due dates.

      If your first ECI and/ or Form C-S/ Form C-S (Lite)/ Form C due date has passed or it is less than 1 month away from the respective filing due date, no email reminder will be sent. You will be given useful tips on the filing of ECI and/ or Form C-S/ Form C-S (Lite)/ Form C when using the kit instead.
