Re: Visa for UK citizen

Yes, you can get a 90 visa and yes, you can search for work while in you in Singapore. And yes, it is possible for you to leave Singapore and then return and get another 90 days, especially if you've done something like take a holiday to Bangkok, or Tioman, or some such... then it doesn't look so mu...

Re: Tax on Executive Director's income (less than 60 days)

You need to contact IRAS and get a proper determination of your status. You can fill everything out yourself but you can't both be resident and non-resident. Contact IRAS.

Re: Selling Advice

Considering you are posting from Kyiv, Ukraine, I would indeed say that you "live a little far from you".

Re: Guarantee letter from ICA

Here's your problem. Being a guarantor means that you guarantee and will be responsible for the behavior and actions of the person requesting the entry visa.

Re: Expat commuting to work from Johor Bahru

Indeed, it is ending, and it looks like a mess for the more than 500,000 Singaporeans will be affected. No plans to replace it with anything. https://sg.new...

You cannot work as a free lancer, for money, without having a legal entity, ie, a company or business. You need a legal entity to issue invoices.
