Re: How to deal with Diplomatic Clause with multiple tenants

If you have not specifically addressed this in the agreement, and you have "equal liability", then you have joint tenants in common which means that either and/or both have responsibility to the landlord. If the other person has properly executed the terms of the diplomatic clause, then it...

Re: Limitation of Liability - Wording

"Or otherwise"... I wouldn't accept it. In contracts we signed, we acknowledged that there could be additional governing documents by including language in the master agreement which states: The Agreement entered into between the parties will consist of the following documents collectively...

Re: Company setup before leaving Singapore, advise from company secretary correct?

Preface: I setup a company in Thailand because it was the only way I could contract with the Thai firms for which I was doing business. I set it up under the Thai American Amity Treaty so while I still needed seven shareholders, I could retain a majority foreign ownership. You are correct... it is n...

Re: IT PROBLEMS - BEST ON LINE HELP SITE?

Please ask. IT support is my profession, currently. If it turns out to be popular, I'll ask the board admins to create a sub-forum here. Another alternative, if you are having specific IT issues, is to permit someone to remote into your PC and have a look around. There are two good free options to d...

Use the SME tax exempt in the first three years and only payout dividends, no salary required. The country I will be living in doesn't tax foreign income and my home count...

Re: Payroll for small businesses: options

Got a quote, and questioned it. The accounting company claims that every company is now obliged to pay so-called Skill Development Levy. I googled it and apparently it's very easy to calculate: https://www.cpf.gov.sg/employers/employerguides/employer-guides/hiring-employees/skills-development-levy-...

Re: Payroll for small businesses: options

I've set up a business a couple of months ago, three guys in total, currently two are on the payroll. First money came in, and so we can pay ourselves finally.

If you messed the place up, it's fair. If she's trying to whack you for normal wear and tear, it's not fair. You decide. If it's not fair, threaten her with the SCT.
