Singapore: Leverage InvoiceNow with LinkFor

Singapore InvoiceNow

On June 19th, LinkFor, in collaboration with IMDA, hosted an exclusive webinar on how unlocking the potential of E-invoicing and InvoiceNow could propel enterprises towards greater efficiency and success.

Singapore’s digital acceleration over the past few years has increased with an estimated 83% of SMEs having digital transformation strategies in place. Whether due to government regulations or the natural evolution of technology in everyday business operations.

e-Invoicing adoption is part of this digital acceleration, with the process significantly streamlining tax and payment processes, and comply with regulatory mandates. Since COVID-19, the rapid rise of e-Invoicing has been notable, with government mandates worldwide requiring businesses to register their e-Invoices with the government.

While it may not be mandatory in a few countries, opting out places businesses at a disadvantage.  Using a secure, government-backed method with Peppol accredited private e-Invoicing solution providers, such as LinkFor, businesses can save considerable time, efficiency, and increase productivity in managing taxes and payments.

InvoiceNow

In Singapore, IMDA introduced ‘InvoiceNow’, which is a nationwide e-invoicing network that enables companies of all sizes to process invoices in a more efficient manner, reducing business costs,  shortening payment cycles, and seamless integration of your ERP systems. LinkFor, as one of the leading Access Point providers in Singapore, offers e-invoicing solutions to all levels of government bodies and businesses that will be a part of InvoiceNow.

The Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS) also announced plans for a phased adoption of InvoiceNow for GST-registered businesses (“GST InvoiceNow Requirement”). The transmission of invoice data to IRAS will be used for GST administration purposes. This marks a collaborative endeavour involving IMDA and IRAS to enhance productivity, improve compliance and reduce costs for businesses through the adoption of InvoiceNow.
