IRAS Hackathon 2016


As part of the Smart Nation strategy, the Singapore Government has outlined a clear intention to adopt a more citizen-centric approach when providing public services. This approach entails a more innovative use of technology and data to provide citizens with customised solutions that improve their lives.

In alignment with this nation-wide strategy, IRAS aims to provide intuitive and convenient digital services and interactions with taxpayers. This requires delivering information and services that meet the unique needs of different groups of taxpayers.


Compliance with tax obligations in Singapore is recognised as being straightforward compared to other jurisdictions. Having achieved a high level of taxpayer satisfaction, IRAS is now moving to the next level in delivering best-in-class tax administration services.

At the first-ever IRAS Hackathon, we invited you to co-create new solutions with the community and other professional experts to deliver taxpayer-centered experiences for SMEs, the self-employed and individual taxpayers.
