Changes to the treatment of Employment Income and Monthly Tax Deductions obligations have placed greater responsibilities on Employers. Employees may now choose to treat the Monthly Tax Deductions (MTD) from their salaries as Final Tax with no further need to submit their Income Tax Returns.

More recently, with drastic changes regarding Basis Periods and Gratuity, compliance has become more complex. With these important amendments, accompanied by much higher penalties, company directors and managers have to ensure that the MTD System is complied with correctly.

Understanding all the relevant aspects is hence more crucial than ever for corporate management and payroll personnel as it affects the tax liability that employees would be exposed to.

Through this INTENSIVE seminar, which is on a more advanced level, all aspects of Employment Income and Monthly Tax Deductions will be covered with emphasis not only on employee-liability and the duties of the Employers but also on the exposure of the directors themselves to tax obligations and penalties where there is failure.
