It has been a long while since I last blogged. I had been busy with work, no thanks to the corporate tax deadline. It was fortunate that I have asked my boss to participate in the Form C e-filing trial. I was quite glad that she actually agreed to this, given that she was a little apprehensive about e-filing when I joined in 2008, and put me in charge of all the liaison works with the IRAS officers.
The year has been tough as companies tend to be aware about the PIC Scheme. Some companies felt that they have grasped the concept of PIC Cash Payout and tried to save cost by getting the so called consultants to do the claims for them. Some even did it themselves. These people ended up making mistakes in the PIC Cash Payout claims, thus making us spend more time in working on the tax computations as we needed to amend their mistakes.
It did not help that my department was embroiled into some office politics, which meant that some time, meant for more productive work was wasted on this.
Despite all these, I am glad to say that I am still enjoying my job, despite the seven year itch approaching. This year will mark my 11th year in the industry.
Despite having to work on my birthday, I decided to keep my spirits up by buying a cake for my colleagues to share my joy for reaching 35 years old. I am glad that most of my colleagues enjoyed the cake. =)
I would like to thank my friends, colleagues & relatives for the well wishes and gifts. =)
