Re: Working Remotely from Singapore as a Tax Resident - which pass/structure?

Tax lawyer / CPA meeting update: On the US LLC side, his position was that as a non-resident alien with a drop shipping e-commerce store, no US federal income tax will apply provided it's structured in a certain way. If I make sure my website T&Cs state that the title passes to the customer at p...

Re: Working Remotely from Singapore as a Tax Resident - which pass/structure?

Please update us. I once had an offshore entity via OCRA. They have an office in Singapore and may be able to advise on entities and I am sure they will know about banks and payment gatways. Thanks for the OCRA tip. It's tax season so I couldn't get an appointment with the tax/biz consultant until ...

Re: Working Remotely from Singapore as a Tax Resident - which pass/structure?

Many thanks for taking the time to reach out to your accountant and get back to me with information (wow I nearly typed 'revert' just then). Her advice pretty much lines up with what I've managed to glean from other sources, which is reassuring. Have booked a meeting with a JP in Australia next mont...

Re: Working Remotely from Singapore as a Tax Resident - which pass/structure?

Monday update: Called Australian High Commission and learned the reason they can't witness/notarise statutory declarations relating to de facto status is that Singapore does not legally recognise de facto marriage. And since they're in Singapore they don't want to say anything that contradicts local...

Re: Working Remotely from Singapore as a Tax Resident - which pass/structure?

So... I'm an IRS agent, sitting in my 20 year old office chair, ensconced in my baby shit colored office, reviewing the folder in front of me that's sitting on my bashed in green army surplus desk with the drawer that won't open.

Re: Working Remotely from Singapore as a Tax Resident - which pass/structure?

Hi SC, Just rereading through one of the links you posted earlier and caught this, didn't see it the first time: A positive point to make is that foreign owners may act as consultants to the LLC under a written Consultant’s agreement completing all consulting work within their home country and billi...

Re: Working Remotely from Singapore as a Tax Resident - which pass/structure?

Hi SC, You've given me a lot to think about. I'll chew over the minutiae and update with a draft Plan B next week. Will also have news after calling MOM and ACH re. the LTVP requirements; I know this is a headache for lots of Australians here in similar situations, so hopefully can make a positive c...
