With effect from 27 Dec 2019, all companies can file their annual returns (AR) with greater ease as most of the information will be pre-filled in the online AR form on ACRA’s online filing portal, BizFile+ by taking reference from the previous AR filing. The filer will need to review the pre-filled information to ensure that it is still relevant for the current AR.
The user interface for the annual return has also been streamlined with a more intuitive layout, and the filer will now need to update or review the information for fewer pages.
In Aug 2018, ACRA had simplified the online AR form that solvent exempt private companies (EPC) and private dormant relevant companies use to file the AR. This latest initiative enables all companies to use one common online AR form that has been further simplified.

REMINDER: All companies, including those that had not carried out any business activities in the financial year or are in a loss position, must e-File their Corporate Income Tax Returns for YA 2017 by 15 Dec 2017, or 30 Nov 2017 if they paper file.
Did you know that more companies can now use the Simplified Tax Return (Form C-S)? From YA2017, Singapore incorporated companies with annual revenue of not more than S$5 million can qualify to file Form C-S if they also meet these qualifying conditions.
FYI, companies that file Form C-S do not need to submit their financial statements and tax computation. These documents should be retained and only submitted to IRAS upon request.
