To date, we have performed more than 200 ASK (Assisted Self Help Kit) certification reviews for client applying or renewing for the Major Exporter Scheme (“MES”) in our capacity as Accredited Tax Advisor (GST).

The common mistakes uncovered during the review are omission of exempt supplies and wrong classification of out-of-scope supplies as zero-rated supplies while in some cases, there are expenses claim which are disallowed under Regulation 26 of the GST (General) Regulations.

You can visit IRAS at for more information on the qualifying criteria for MES.

We, at Max Lewis Consultants, are Accredited Tax Advisor (Income Tax and GST) that can help and advise entities to get ready the necessary documents for performing ASK review for the purposes of applying or renewing MES scheme.
