SILA - A GST Registered Entity
Circulation Date: Feb 02, 2018
Dear SILA Members,
We are happy to share with you that SILA will be GST registered with effect from 1 Feb 2018. The GST number is M90004562G
To facilitate the transition to minimize inconveniences to members, SILA will absorb the additional GST charges for membership dues till 31 March 2018.
This means all fees collected before 1 April 2018 will be GST inclusive and fees collected on or after 1 April 2018 will be GST exclusive. All chargeable events and services (such as membership dues, courses, awards, etc) will be subjected to the prevailing GST of 7%.
SILA’s Financial Processes
As a GST registered entity, there is an urgent need to refine our financial processes. As deliberated during the Internal Audit and Council meeting in January 2018, SILA will be implementing the following:
Payment by cash shall not be accepted with immediate effect. Payment methods such as cheque and Paypal are preferred.
Future membership and accreditation renewal process shall start from 1 October and end on 31 Jan, the following year.
An administrative fee of S$100 shall be charged for late payment, after 31 January, as per SILA’s Constitution, Clause 9.10.2 (page 11)
Issuance of advance invoice for membership dues shall cease with immediate effect to avoid uncollectible receivables. Moving forward, email reminders shall be sent to members instead.
Please email SILA Secretariat at (email@example.com) if you have further inquiries. Thank you for your continued support for SILA.
