How to Effectively Manage Employer’s Obligations
Workshop Objective
Our tax law requires employers to discharge certain obligations relating to employees. Thus, it
is pertinent that their HR personnel or personnel tasked with payroll matters be kept updated or
refreshed with sufficient tax knowledge to discharge such obligations. For instance, as announced
in the recent budget, effective from 2014, Monthly Tax Deduction (“MTD”) remitted by an
employer could be deemed as the final tax of employees and the employees could elect not to
file returns. Consequently, there is a need for the employer to review their current procedures on
MTD compliance.
This workshop is designed to share the knowledge in completing statutory documents to be
compliance with the Income Tax Act, 1967 (“the Act”), Income Tax (Deduction from Remuneration)
Rules 1994 and the relevant Public Rulings issued by the Inland Revenue Board (“IRB”).
As the emphasis on penalty for non-tax compliance increases, so does the burden on employers
to understand and manage the myriad tasks involved in complying with their tax obligations.
Hence, it is crucial for their HR personnel or personnel tasked with payroll matters to gain a good
understanding of the tax obligations as non-compliance can lead to severe penalties being imposed
by the IRB.
