IRAS is conducting Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) to better understand how we can help businesses to easily fulfil tax obligations (e.g. for Corporate Income Tax/ GST/ Auto-Inclusion Scheme/ Tax Clearance) by using IRAS’ seamless filing products such as ASR+ accounting software and payroll software.

Who are the participants for the FGDs?

Participants for the FGDs will be randomly selected for the respective tax types (e.g. Individual Income Tax, Corporate Income Tax, Property Tax, GST, International Tax) to ensure representation across business sectors and industries in Singapore.

If you are interested to participate in the FGDs, please complete this FormSG by 16 May 2022. We seek your understanding that there will be a selection process, and successful participants for the FGDs will be contacted via email by 30 May 2022.

How will the FGDs be conducted?

The FGDs will be held in early June 2022. An FGD invitation email will be sent (from [email protected]) to selected businesses from May 2022, with details of the date, time and venue of the discussion session.

How will my responses at the FGDs be used?

All responses discussed during the closed-door FGDs will be anonymised.

We hope that the findings from the FGDs will give us greater insights to assess the needs, preferences, and priority issues for our many stakeholders. This helps us understand how to allocate resources, partner industry experts for maximum impact, and design tools to create a simplified tax reporting experience for all.

Who should I contact with regard to the FGDs?
