Re: British expats

I'm alone/single but happy to meet up in a bar/cafe, as a "UK group", for chatting about UK/Sg issues.

Re: Pte. set-up. Have to engage a registered filing agent?

ACRA just called me (04 July 2019): "as a foreigner, you do not have a SingPass, therefore you MUST use a registered filing agent 'cos they will use their own SingPass." He said, if I heard ACRA correctly, it's due to "authorisation" ....... "otherwise the resident director can list a foreigner as a...

I have a draft contract, in hand, to provide short term, over a 6 month period, 70 man-days of work, in Sg, as a consultant. The client requires a company name and a copy of my IC before the contract is executed. I called...

Pte. set-up. Have to engage a registered filing agent?

I am a foreigner, UK, worked in Sg past 10 years (EP), now unemployed. Presently in Sg on 3 month tourist visa.

CAN A DOMESTIC HELPER HAVE A LEASE?

Q1
A Filipina maid wants to take out a long term lease on a condo here in Singapore. She will not be living in the unit, it is empty. Is this allowed?

Q2
ditto except the maid buys the condo.

//
On basis that she has existing legal residency then I assume no law(s) infringement?

Re: Having a hard time finding job on DP status

If you have a skill that an Asian expat can do then it's tough to compete here. A western expat also has higher expectations with regard to housing so the minimum salary circa 7k. I am a quantity surveyor and it's tough (local salaries 4-6k). But, I am also an experienced Contracts Mgr.; a tougher j...

Re: House rental issues

OP
You have a strong position: The term "reasonable" (definition by you) is your backstop.

Re: Staying in SG after EP expires

I do not foresee any problems except perhaps if your "visa runs" are in/out same day which may raise a red flag.
