What is GST F7?
GST F7 is a declaration made to IRAS when a business has made an error in its previous GST F5 filings (quarterly reporting). You may choose to correct a GST filing error through an administrative concession, which applies if the net GST amount error is less than SGD 1,500 or if the sum of the error of the non-GST amount for each affected accounting period is less than 5%. This concession allows the business to correct the error in the next GST filing.
However, if the business has overpaid GST, it can file an F7 form within 5 years of the affected accounting period to claim a refund.
