Re: Advice sought for salary package to move to Singapore

Scandinivia has much higher taxes and the cost of living is arguably more expensive. Even considering that your wife won't be working, I'd wager you'd end up with more money net. Especially, since most of your highest expenses is covered for. So, all-in-all it seems like a very reasonable package. T...

Re: Tax residency and working remotely, away from Singapore

Thanks all for the very helpful responses! The consensus seems to be that having an EP makes you eligible for tax in Singapore by definition. MOM/IRAS doesn't really care how long you are in Singapore, provided you have an address and pay your taxes. When travelling to another country, I don't inten...

Re: Tax residency and working remotely, away from Singapore

Bottom line: If you're not living in Singapore, you don't pay Singapore taxes and you don't get an EP. This back and forth of less than 183 days or more than 183 days is mostly meaningless, because whichever country you are actually living in is going to want you to pay taxes. In the case of the US...

In your case, you just need to look at both sets of tax residency regulations carefully and make sure you qualify for Singapore and don’t qualify for the other.

Re: Tax residency and working remotely, away from Singapore

Myasis would be the best guy for this. An important point though is not to accidentally end up being tax resident for TWO countries (for example Singapore and Australia) esp. if there is no dual tax treaty in place. Unlikely that would happen. My idea is to spend a few months in my home country and...

Tax residency and working remotely, away from Singapore

Sorry, if this question has been asked, but I searched for quite a bit and couldn't find anything relating to my question. The pandemic has changed my company's view on having an office, and we have set-out to be a WFH/remote-work company. My company is supportive of anyone working from anywhere, so...
