Ms Ong Bee Lian, the Bookkeeper

Ms Ong Bee Lian, the precedent partner of Ongserve Management, a firm providing bookkeeping and secretarial service, had wilfully with intent to evade tax, consistently understated the profits of the Firm for the Years of Assessment 1998 to 2000 and 2002. The total amount understated was $156,000.

Her Modus Operandi, not much but here it is.
Evidence dug up by IRAS shows that Ms Ong has wilfully and intentionally falsified and claimed fictitious management fee expenses in the accounts of the Firm for the Years of Assessment 1998 to 2000 and 2002. Aiya…

So what has happened to her?
She will be accorded government’s food and lodging for 2 weeks ie. imprisonment plus order to pay a penalty of 3 times the amount of tax undercharged.
