More about GST

All your historical returns are retained securely in Xero for five or more years in compliance with IRAS regulations. You can include notes on historical returns that only you can see, and once the final return is saved, no further changes can be made.

Xero includes default Singapore GST rates for income, expenses, imports, and zero-rated and no GST items. Each account in the chart of accounts has an editable GST rate. You can set up GST rates for specific contacts and add additional rates if needed.

You can view and verify individual transactions in your GST return by selecting 'Transactions by box number'. If you use multi-currency, transactions show in both base and transaction currency.

You can export your GST F5 report to PDF and Excel so you can review and collaborate on draft reports with your team and advisor. Excel exports now include transaction details that hyperlink to Xero and are grouped by F5 box totals.

Boxes 10 and 11 now auto-populate based on a newly introduced tax code. Optional boxes 14 to 19 are also now available in the F5 form.
