Is Your Company Qualified For Audit Exemption?

  • whatsap


Recently I received a few enquiries from some prospect clients whose revenue exceeds S$10mil per annum if they can be exempted from statutory audit.

Let me share here for the benefit of business owners on this platform…

Currently, a company is exempted from having its accounts audited if it is an exempt private company (EPC) with annual revenue of $5 million or less. This approach is being replaced by a new small company concept which will determine exemption from statutory audit. Notably, a company no longer needs to be an EPC to be exempted from audit.

A company qualifies as a small company if: 

(a) it is a private company in the financial year in question; and

(b) it meets at least 2 of 3 following criteria for immediate past two consecutive financial years: 

(i) total annual revenue ≤ $10m;
(ii) total assets ≤ $10m; 
(iii) no. of employees ≤ 50

Hope this helps.
