Re: Rejected the transfer of REP?

@sundaymorningstaple Thank you for your advice. 1) You must have a good reason to believe that I will not be getting another renewal. Can you share your reasons? 2) I really do not think that I posting from Thailand is a good reason. Anyway, kindly comment. 3) My company prefer me to work in Thailan...

Re: What to bring over...? List of 'must have' items

An interesting thread that I'd like to reinvigorate so that I end up with a comprehensive list of 'must haves' for living in Singapore. With this I can determine what I should pack & bring over with me for my 3 year stay in a house with garden. My container space is limited to 10m - so I need to...

Re: Living in SG with a foreign contract

If your company is opening a representative office, then it has a legal entity in Singapore, which is necessary for you to get an EP. Personally, I don't know why your company wouldn't just incorporate a private limited... the hassle factor is about the same. You will pay personal income taxes in Si...

Re: Applying PR for my Wife Who is an Investor But not Elligible for GIP

Thanks for the reply. Isn't that going to be double/tripple taxation? My wife is taxed on some of her investments except for fixed securities wherein these are non-taxable. She is earning around USD$200k++ income per month just from interest, coupons and capital appreciations "after tax". ...

Re: Living part-time in Singapore

The hardest part will be working out and successfully obtaining a work or residency pass. What are your plans there? Yes, this one may be difficult. Entrepass seems to be too big of an undertaking - I'd happily move my business to a Singapore entity if that was enough but the requirements for Entre...

Re: Living part-time in Singapore

A lot of long termers wont bother with you because the cycle of making friends and losing them happens far too often, so the expats will treat you like a tourist. Will be friendly enough, but no plans to make long term bonds. I have seen this elsewhere, but wasn't sure of what Singapore's expat com...
