Can an API be created to list Qualifying Debt Securities by ISIN?
Hi michael_t, sorry for the delayed response. To answer your question, definitely an API can be created to list the QDS by ISIN if the information comes from us. I am checking with the relevant department to see if we are the source of this data. Would you mind sharing your use case for this API? Without this API, what are the existing processes that you need to go through to get the information you need?
Current process is manual one and requires tax payers to submit a list of potentially QDS qualifying securities to IRAS to check whether securities are, or continue to be QDS. On IRAS side this is also tedious, because tax payer lists will not necessarily use ISIN as a keyfield - may instead be depending on matching security description.
