    Cess has been reduced to 0% since 1 Jul 07

    Got this info from the IRAS website

    Changes to CESS with effect from 1 July 2007

    When do I stop collecting CESS?
    With effect from 1 Jul 2007, CESS will be at 0%. If in the future, any outlet or hotel falls under the requirement to collect CESS, they will be kept informed of the details in due course.

    Who will be affected by this change?
    All CESS establishments holding First Class Public House Liquor Licence as well as gazetted hotels (including room and food & beverage).

    How do I prepare for the changes that are effective from 1 Jul 2007?
    a) Adjustment to cash register
    You are required to adjust the cash register or point-of-sales system on CESS immediately past midnight such that wef 1 Jul 2007 the receipt will not reflect CESS. Under Section 7 of the Singapore Tourism (CESS Collection) Act, unauthorized collection of CESS is an offence, liable upon conviction to a fine not exceeding $5,000.00.
    And this statement from IRAS

    With effect from 1 Jul 2007, CESS rate has been reduced to 0%. If you come across any establishment that collects CESS, please call IRAS/STB on 6351 3648 or 6831 3244 respectively. Alternatively, you can email IRAS.

    I didn't know either until ernest_ted mention it. A quick check at the IRAS website confirms it.

    Yup now theres no more +++, CESS has stopped, for awhile now...
    a quick way to get the after ++ amount is to multiply the figure by 1.177

    Any shop can help you do the calculations. It just depend on whether you trust their maths or not
