If a company rents apartments that it owns and is GST registered then I do believe they have to charge this tax. http://www.iras.gov.sg/irasHome/uploadedFiles/Quick_Links/e-Tax_Guides/GST/gstguidetopptyownerandpptyholdingcompany_final_010707.pdf See para 5.8.6.

Is the tile sticking on a wall that is seperating private from communual space? If it's a boundary wall, and the tile is from the external side, it is the responsibility of the MCST to get it fixed. This is normal regulation unless there is some odd bylaw which is contrary to that. Anyway, even if i...

Do not worry about the money though. You will be eligible for make up pay, ie. they will pay your last salary during your two years of NS and your employment is on hold.

Most condos have provision for 1 carpark lot per unit, and usually not all occupiers have cars. Occupiers with additional cars have to pay a monthly fee to occupy more than 1 lot.

Carpark lots are shared, on a first come first serve basis.
