He said real estate development sees an uptrend in 2014 and the problem now is not the excessive demand but undersupply of residential units.

Meanwhile, Grant Thornton senior executive director Seah Siew Yun shared about the influences of taxation to a company. She said many businesses owners concentrate only on expanding their businesses, and often pass the taxation problem to their subordinates without trying to get to understand the actual taxation situation.

"Some bosses never oversee the procedures in tax handling and this results in some unnecessary penalties for them."

She said if the bosses would handle the taxation matters according to procedures in addition to focusing on their businesses and profits, they will be able to avoid some unnecessary fines.

"She urges business owners to strictly monitor their company policies and every procedure and step, interact more often with taxation agencies in order to get a better understanding of taxation issues.
