Public Rulings and Tax Guidelines are vibrant developments undertaken by the Inland Revenue Board to educate the public on amendments to Tax Laws and Procedure, especially those of substantial impact. In line with this objective, Revenue would occasionally also issue tax guidelines to assist the taxpayer in proper compliance. The Rulings selected for this seminar are those that relate to current issues that might pose difficulty in understanding or matters that are more commonly encountered within the responsibilities of tax consultants, professionals, and company officials. To achieve this and to offer further insights into the respective topic, the Public Rulings will be supported by examples and computations.
