Singapore Budget 2019 and Your Business

This event has finished.

5 March 2019, 1:30pm (Registration starts at 1:00pm)

How will the proposed Singapore Budget 2019 measures transform the economy into a forward-looking one to help businesses build new capabilities and stay ahead of the curve? How will the implementation of Reverse Charge (GST) and changes to BEPS (transfer pricing) impact businesses?

Join us at Budget 2019 briefing where our tax professionals will dissect Budget 2019 and its impact on businesses for you.  They will also provide an update on the latest developments in GST and transfer pricing.

At the same time, recent data breach incidents at SingHealth and MOH once again highlight data privacy risks and system vulnerabilities in the face of increasingly sophisticated cyber threats.  Part 2 of Budget 2019 will address the lessons learnt and what businesses should do with respect to data privacy compliance, especially with heightened consumer awareness of personal data privacy brought about by the saga, and the impending enforcement of stricter PDPA rules from September 2019
