Re: Moving out of UK but currently own a house here - what to do?

My general advice is to sell your home. Sounds crazy but not really. It's one less thing to worry about in your absence and it means absolutely no issues establishing tax residency in Singapore and cutting it in the UK.

Conversely, active income, ie, earned income such as salary and commissions, is taxed in the country in wh...

Re: Weekend break

You have so many options for a get-away that it is mind boggling. Short and sweet (cheap, too) catch a ferry for a weekend at an island resort at Bintan (fancier) or Batam (closer, cheaper). Drive or catch a flight to Tioman island... many nice spots to stay, some very secluded. Penang is another sp...

I have also contacted a consulting company and here is what they told me: Recently the MoM has stopped granting LoCs to SP owners, including those who are already in business and had previously got their LoC for exactly...

Re: Swede + Singaporean PR gf

Thank you. I recently paid a visit to one such company in Singapore, and was far from impressed. Virtually no legal advice whatsoever, just a long list of services I may or may not need and their associated costs. Basically only information already available on their website. It also seems that som...

Re: Which legal status for what professional activity?

Thank you for your time. I have already contacted ACRA and MoM and will go forward according to what they answer is. What you said matches what I could read on the ACRA site, I don't know why so many of the expats told me it wasn't possible to start a SP without partnering, some of them event told ...

Re: Which legal status for what professional activity?

Thank you, you are confirming what I thought, that a SP with a local partner is the only viable solution. Do you know wher/how I can get answers to my questions about the partner? I can't find anything about that on the ACRA or MoM web sites. I already have someone I'm considering sas a partner but...
