Accordingly, the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS) has collected millions in taxes and penalties as a result of GST audits and investigations (Source: IRAS Annual Report 2013/14).  Any GST errors left undetected and therefore not addressed often continue to accumulate and translate into significant financial exposure and disastrous consequences to the reputation of you or your client’s organization.
