The wishlist during the GST Conference:
- Voluntarily Disclosure Provision: This provision is to encourage registrants to disclose their GST errors before GST Audit.
- Amendment in Penalty Clause: This is to amend the penalty clause so that the penalty is based on outstanding balance instead of the tax due and payable
- Alert on the revision of Guidelines: This is a request to alert the public any revision in the Guidelines in proper manner. Currently RMCD announced the amendment silently without informing the public.
- Risk Management - Learn from other countries with GST mechanism to achieve self compliance. Typical approach is ASK - Assisted Self-help Kit and ACAP - Assisted Compliance and Assurance Program by IRAS in Singapore
- Intensive review and analytics with GST Audit File (GAF) - It can determine the trend and pattern in GST pitfalls so that it alerts the registrant before GST Audit is triggered.
