However, if the accounting transactions are small, bookkeeping can be done on a quarterly or annual basis. Financial statements should include Statement of Comprehensive Income, Cash Flow Statement, Statement of Financial Position and Statement of Changes in Equity. This guide will let you have more information on the annual filings needed for Singapore Companies.
