Hear what experts have to say about the much-awaited Budget 2016

Will there be more concessions to SMEs?

After the incredibly generous Jubilee Budget, what does Budget 2016 hold for Singapore? Singapore Business Review is proud to bring back the SBR Singapore Budget Breakfast Briefing, the definitive event to understand the implications of this year’s budget statement.

Experts and analysts from some of Singapore’s leading firms will discuss the budget’s key points in a panel session, exploring the wide-ranging impacts of Budget 2016.

This session will be a 2-hour event to be moderated by Tim Charlton, publisher of Singapore Business Review. It will be held on Monday, March 28 at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore. Registration starts at 7:30 AM.

Panelists include Anuj Kagalwala, Asset & Wealth Management Tax Leader, PwC Singapore; Chia Seng Chye, Partner - Tax Services, Ernst & Young Solutions LLP; Lee Tiong Heng, Tax Partner, Deloitte Singapore; Ajay Kumar Sanganeria, Tax Partner, KPMG; and Shanker Iyer, FCCA, Chairman & CEO, Shanker Iyer & Co.

This year's discussion covers how the budget can help SMEs deal with intensifying economic volatility and slowing global growth, and will also discuss the most effective measures in helping Singaporean companies transition to a value-creation economy.

The discussion will tackle how local firms can stay ahead of competition and gain a foothold in international markets. It will also discuss how the budget strengthen Singapore’s position as a business hub, particularly in terms of attracting multinationals through business-friendly tax policies, and will explore whether the country can achieve increased tax transparency without sacrificing its tax incentives.

Apart from effects on corporates and the broader economy, the discussion will also cover how the budget affects ordinary Singaporeans, particularly in terms of coping with high living costs and higher interest rates.
