Bulk Extension for Filing of Individual Income Tax Returns for YA 2021

IRAS will allow one common bulk extension date of 30 Jun 2021 for all tax agents to file your clients' individual income tax returns for Year of Assessment (YA) 2021. Tax agents are advised to plan your resource requirements accordingly to meet this extended due date as no further extension will be granted.

How to Request for Bulk Extension?

Tax agents looking to request for bulk extension are to email the list of their clients using the bulk extension template (XLS, 700KB) to bulkreq@iras.gov.sg between 8 Feb and 31 Mar 2021. Requests sent to other mailboxes or by post will not be accepted. Late requests will also not be accepted.

Failure to File Returns by the Extended Due Date

Where returns are not received by 30 Jun 2021, estimated assessments will be issued. Penalties will also be imposed for late filing.

View DIN of Individual Tax Forms

If you are filing the Form B1 (paper form) using the IRAS softcopy of the Form B1 template for your clients, you must quote the Document Identification Number (DIN) and the Internal Code on the Form B1. You can conduct single or multiple searches for the DIN via myTax Portal.

You may login to myTax Portal using your Corppass.

Photocopied / Scanned Copies of Tax Returns

IRAS will not accept photocopied or scanned copies of tax returns. A tax return is a statutory declaration which must bear the original signature of the taxpayer.

Not Ordinarily Resident (NOR) Scheme Applications

All NOR applications must be submitted together with the tax returns by 30 Jun 2021. For clearance cases where the client ceased employment in 2020, the application form for NOR concession for YA 2021 must also reach IRAS by 30 Jun 2021. Late applications will not be accepted.
