The 2018 Singapore Budget & Tax Outlook Conference

Expert Speakers Chung-Sim Siew Moon , Gan Hwee Leng , Bernard Aw , Shanker Iyer , Stephen Phua

$300.00 (including GST)



The 2018 Singapore Tax Budget is drawing much attention after Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said last November that taxes are set to go up as government spending increases. This has sparked speculation among economists and tax professionals about the format and timing of the tax increase.

How will this year's Budget proposals impact your organisation in the short to long term? What are the important tax developments, and the opportunities and risks that these would present to your organisation?

Featuring half-a-day of practical learning, this is the “must-attend” networking event that Finance and Tax Professionals will not want to miss. Join us for this interactive session, where our distinguished speakers and panelists will offer you valuable insights and analyses to help your organisation move forward with confidence.
