Programme Synopsis

Singapore’s Goods and Services Tax (GST) started on 1 April 1994. I am sure you will agree it has come a long way. 2020 will see the dawn of a new era in GST as it goes into cyberspace to tackle the digital economy and cryptocurrencies.

Globally, the indirect tax landscape has also been through what must seem like light years of change as it grows in significance as a source of tax revenue (even in Singapore where the rate will be raised any time from 2021).

Want to get into the heart of GST and learn what it means to be a top adviser on GST? Then, what better than to understand the journey so far to gain a better pulse of what might lie ahead.

Hear from the established. Hear from the seasoned. Just what does it take to stay relevant and ahead in this world of disruption?

The Singapore Institute of Accredited Tax Professionals is pleased to organise Tax Peek – a sharing session aimed at giving members a peek into the professional journeys of established members in different areas of tax.

Mr Koh Soo How

Koh SH & Associates
Accredited Tax Advisor (GST) 


Soo How, Executive Director, Koh SH & Associates, brings with him over 25 years of knowledge and experience in indirect tax gained through working with the tax authority and in a Big 4 firm where he nurtured the growth of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) practice.

Known for his pragmatic approach and sound advice and solutions, Soo How has been named as one of the world's leading indirect tax advisers by International Tax Review since 2011. He was appointed by the Minister of Finance to be a member of the GST Board of Review which is an administrative tribunal established to hear appeals on GST matters. Soo How is also the Chief Editor of LexisNexis’s “Goods and Services Tax – Law & Practice (2nd Edition)”.

Soo How spent a number of years working overseas on corporate income tax and GST matters. In Singapore, he has more than 20 years of relevant experience in GST, having started out as a member of the GST team at the IRAS that was responsible for the implementation of the GST system in 1994. He was an Assistant Comptroller of GST with the primary responsibility to set up the GST audit function and develop policy as well as operational rules for the GST treatment of specialised issues and transactions such as the export of goods, tourist refunds, and record-keeping requirements. His policy and implementation experience has led him to be involved in discussions with overseas policy makers (including China and Malaysia) on their indirect tax reforms.
