Singapore Accounting Services

Outsource your bookkeeping and taxes to our Singapore Accounting Services

According to the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA), nearly 500,000 companies are currently registered in Singapore. It is a mandate for all registered companies to file taxes with the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS). In order to file accurate tax returns, companies need to maintain accurate books of accounts and keep relevant documentation organized.

Large companies usually comply easily with IRAS mandates, general tax laws and other obligations, by hiring expense accounting firms. However, bookkeeping and tax compliance can be a challenge for small to medium businesses with more limited budgets. These businesses may not be familiar with the current tax laws and may not be equipped with the right tools or processes to comply.

Our Singapore Accounting Services are designed to keep things simple and take the bookkeeping, accounting and tax filing burden off your shoulders.  We give you peace of mind for accounting and taxes compliance. Our services are best fit for some to medium companies aiming to outsource their accounting and bookkeeping services.

How do we perform outsourced Singapore Accounting Services?

Efficient Singapore Accounting Services require appropriate tools to access up-to-date and accurate financial information. It is important, as much as possible, to follow an online process for us to be informed about your business activities and record them properly in your accounting records.

  • An Online Accounting Software is a must for us to record all your transaction and supporting documentation electronically. Such software enables us to share reports and other financial information with you, in near time. In case of audit, the records are also readily available for an auditor to take a look. We typically work with either Xero, QuickBooks Online and Odoo Accounting to perform bookkeeping.
  • A Document Sharing System is important to exchange supporting documentation for your transactions. Typically, an auditor will require to view supporting evidence, in order to consider whether a particular accounting record is acceptable. Outsourced bookkeeping usually requires a way to exchange digital documents such as PDF, scanned copies, etc. If you do not have any of this, we will work with you to setup something basic so that we can digitalize your accounting process.
  • Access to Electronic Bank Statements is a key component to perform a quick and accurate reconciliation of bank accounts. On a monthly basis, transactions recorded into the company bank account(s) need to be reconciled against the transactions recorded in the accounting system. Electronic bank statements guarantee a quick processing of the reconciliation process, and allow us to check whether the end of month bank balance tallies with the bank balance in the accounting system.
