Is It Mandatory to Prepare a Capital Statement?

Currently, the preparation of a capital statement is not obligatory. However, it is considered a prudent practice to compile a capital statement on an annual basis.


The preparation of a capital statement serves to identify potential financial risks and mitigates them.


Through this practice, individuals are more likely to maintain and record their documents and essential information correctly, simplifying the process in case of a tax investigation.


Additionally, this practice allows for effective tracking of personal financial affairs and provides a reliable estimate of one’s net worth.

Challenges Encountered in Preparing a Capital Statement

One of the primary hurdles often faced by individuals is the difficulty in producing supporting documents or information for transactions conducted in previous years.


Unlike businesses, individuals tend to maintain fewer records related to their personal financial dealings.


Upon receiving CP102 and CP103 forms from the Inland Revenue Board (IRB), taxpayers are typically granted a 30-day window to prepare the capital statement.


Extensions may be sought, subject to the IRB’s discretion.


Due to the time constraints, many taxpayers find it challenging to retrieve historical documents and recollect transactions from years ago.


This can place the taxpayer at a disadvantage, as the absence of proper documentation renders them unable to provide justifications or a basis for disagreement with any adjustments made by the IRB.
