IRAS VES Training Session

I was not very keen to attend the session as they are covering the things that I know, by virtue that I am working in this line for the past 11 years and  I have been seething with anger about one of the fellow volunteers stealing away the other volunteer’s credit for the VES exercise the past two years mentioned in 2 blog posts ago.

This year, I roped in 2 new friends of mine, Patricia & Baoshan  to join us as they are  interested to learn more about personal income tax. It is good to see more young people coming forward to help in our common cause.

The training was alright, but I was surprised that the IRAS trainers made several mistakes in the training session which I thought it was not acceptable as such mistakes have a huge impact on a taxpayer’s compliance records.

I hope that the coming VES will not be plagued by problems like last year.

Hi Paul, it is commendable that you have been a volunteer for such a long time...keep it up :)

For the mistakes presented during the training session, perhaps you can speak with them so that they don't make the same mistake again.

All the best Paul.
