Paying GST/ Claiming GST refunds

  • To revise estimated assessment, e-File your GST F5/F8 return immediately by logging into myTax Portal. Your estimated assessment will only be revised after IRAS has received your GST F5/F8 return. Please note that you are required to file a 'Nil' return even if there are no business activities during the period.

  • You have the right to apply for review and revision of any decision made by the Comptroller of GST under the Goods and Services Tax Act (GST Act).
  • GIRO is the preferred method of payment.
  • Most GST-registered businesses pay GST on time. There are penalties if GST is not paid on time.

  • Generally tax credits of at least $15 are automatically refunded within 30 days from the date they arise, without the need for taxpayers to submit a claim for refund. Refunds via GIRO can be as early as within 7 days while those by cheques may take up to 30 days. IRAS will pay interest on any late refund beyond 30 days. However there may be circumstances where IRAS is unable to automatically refund the tax credits. No interest will be payable for such cases.
  • A person who has been authorised at e-Service Authorisation System (EASY) can log in to myTax Portal  to view GST account details (e.g. whether payment is received) or request for a statement of account via “View Account Summary” e-Service.”
