For many SME business owners, the task of successfully running their businesses requires their full attention to the core profit-generating responsibilities, leaving them less time to attend to the critically important accounting and book-keeping duties. Even those that purchased accounting software to make it easier soon find that they lack the skills or the time to fully utilise the high-tech software. Others consider hiring full-time, in-house accounting assistance, but they soon find that they lack the funds to hire and train such a person. CSK Corporate Consultants Pte. Ltd. recognised this problem and addressed it by offering ongoing accounting support to minimise your headaches and maximise your financial and administrative efficiency. The quality of our accounting and financial statement services stems, in part, from our highly personalised approach to every single client. We take the time to understand distinct aspects of your company and then tailor our activities to take into account those special factors. Annual Accounts Annual business accounts are, of course, still very important as they may be required by the Inland Revenue Authority and often requested by banks and other lenders. It goes without saying that we are well capable of producing annual accounts for virtually any type of business – sole trader, partnership, private limited company and so on. Value from Accounts We believe that businesses of all sizes should receive maximum value from the production of accounts. Accounts can be used to identify the profitability (or otherwise) of different product lines, keep track of costs and generally provide good indications of where a business can make changes for the better. At CSK Corporate Consultants Pte. Ltd, we will deliver the highest quality reports you need to further your success.
Many people are attracted to the idea of working for themselves. They may have a wealth of experience in a particular industry or service area or perhaps they possess a talent that could be turned to profitable use. Such knowledge and talent is of course essential. But on its own, it simply is not enough to guarantee success in business. Such decisions should never be taken lightly. However with the right advice at the outset the potential benefits are enormous. We can help you BUT we need to be in at the beginning. We can help in deciding how the business should be set up (e.g. sole trader, Partnership or perhaps a Private Limited company). Once you are set up it is essential to ensure that your internal accounting systems are reliable; not only to satisfy various government departments but also to ensure that you are able to monitor and measure progress against the original business plan. Only this way can problems be identified at an early stage, allowing appropriate action to be taken before it is too late. If all of this sounds a little frightening, don’t forget that we are able to help and support you through those early years – We will NOT interfere. We simply guide and advise in areas where appropriate. It is your business after all.
We understand that when you’re busy running your company it can make sense to remove as many of the routine administrative matters, freeing you up to concentrate on more pressing matters.

Goods and Services Tax
GST has been with us for over 20 years now and remains an interesting subject, to say the least. If you are in business, it is likely that you will be affected by GST in some way. For example, there are an increasing number of GST schemes that may or may not be beneficial to you. We can help you with this. GST returns themselves can be confusing! We can provide a regular GST service, ensuring that your returns are accurately prepared well before filing deadlines. There is an enormous amount of legislation in place to impose penalties on GST defaulters, so compliance is generally a pretty good idea in our view. Therefore, if you are in any doubt of any aspect of your GST position, we would urge you to seek proper professional help. We would naturally be delighted to provide it for you. GST services include:
- Applying for GST registration
- Applying for GST exemption
- Cancellation of GST registration
- Completion of GST Control Accounts
- Submission of Quarterly Form GST F5 Return
The IRAS has introduced the Assisted Self-Help Kit (ASK), which is a review package for GST registered businesses to identify errors in their GST reporting. Businesses applying for GST schemes such as the Major Exporter Scheme, the Import GST Deferment Scheme, the Approved Contract Manufacturer and Trader Scheme are required to undertake a review using the ASK, which must be certified by an Accredited Tax Advisor (GST) or Accredited Tax Practitioner (GST) with the Singapore Institute of Accredited Tax Professionals. The IRAS is currently using the ASK as part of a compliance check on the overall GST compliance of the GST-registered business. What this means is that YOU will be the one performing the review while the IRAS collects the taxes and penalties for errors arising from the self-review. We are able to assist you in undertaking the review and provide a certification. If you are considering the appointment of ASK reviewers, please contact us.

An audit includes examination, on a test basis, of evidence relevant to the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. It also includes an assessment of the significant estimates and judgements made by the directors in the preparation of the financial statements and of whether the accounting policies are appropriate to the company’s circumstances, consistently applied and adequately disclosed. Our independent Chartered Accountants plan and perform an audit so as to obtain all the information and explanations necessary in order to provide us with sufficient evidence to give reasonable assurance that the financial statements are free from material misstatement, whether caused by fraud or other irregularity or error. In forming our opinion we also evaluate the overall adequacy of the presentation of information in the financial statements. We pride ourselves on our efficient and professional approach. Knowing the way the business operates will also help us to carry out our tasks with the minimum of disruption to you, your staff and of course your customers. If you are considering the appointment of auditors, please contact us.
