However these companies will still need to prepare these documents and are ready to submit in the event that IRAS requested for them.
The requirements for the simplified filing are:
- Company has an annual revenue of $200,000 or below
- Excluding separate source income like interest
- Company only derives income taxable at prevailing corporate tax rate ot 17% and
- Company not claiming the following in the YA:
- Carry-back of current year capital allowances or losses

- Investment allowance
- Foreign tax credit and tax deducted at source
Also from this year there will be no more physical filing and e-filing is compulsory. The extended tax filing due date of 15 Dec will not be available from YA 2021 and companies will require to e-file their YA2021 by 30 November 2021.
