Understanding Legal, Tax & Accounting Requirements for SPAC Listings on the SGX

Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (“SPACs”), which have already gained popularity in the global landscape, made their debut on the SGX earlier this year. As per other listed companies, SPACs are expected to comply with local legal, tax and accounting frameworks and guidelines.


In view of this, BoardRoom is collaborating with CPA Australia to organise a webinar where legal, tax and accounting experts will shed some light on the pertinent technical requirements to take note of in a SPAC listing journey on the SGX. Topics that they will be covering include:


  • Legal and Regulatory Considerations
  • Key Tax Highlights
  • Common Accounting Challenges


Register now for your complimentary seat to this webinar or reach out to us should you have any questions regarding SPACs.
