Unaudited Financial Statements

 

Under the Companies Act, Exempt Private Companies* (EPCs) with annual revenue below $2.5 million are not required to have their accounts audited for financial year beginning on or after 15 May 2003. The revenue threshold was raised to $5 million for EPCs with financial year beginning on or after 1 June 2004.

 

Most private limited companies in Singapore are no longer required to have their accounts audited if they satisfy certain conditions.

 

* Exempt private companies:

  •  which have no corporate shareholders and no more than 20 individual shareholders

  •  with turnover of less than S$5 million for the accounting year can file unaudited reports. Dormant companies are also exempt from submitting audited reports.

 

An EPC will still need to prepare unaudited financial statement in accordance to the Companies Act and Singapore Financial Reporting Standards for the purpose of IRAS' filing requirements to file your tax returns. The format is similar to an audited financial statement except that do not need an auditor to sign off the report.
