Re: Options to remain in Singapore

Try the REP renewal route first. I wouldn't worry about employment. Be prepared to appeal and explain circumstances of non-employment of wife, and your ability to support her. You'll know quite quickly. Do note that as long as she remains in the country her PR is valid, so there are no residency iss...

Re: Payroll for employees abroad

Still don't have enough information. You say "I have a SG registered Ltd". Does this mean you are the shareholder? If you are not resident in Singapore, you must have a locally resident director, correct? Are you a non-resident director? Are you making the management decisions from the com...

Re: Payroll for employees abroad

Where is "abroad"? It makes a difference. Employees living in another country must have residency permission (citizenship, work pass, or some other setup), and personal income tax must be paid in the country in which they reside. There are some exceptions. Therefore: a) what countries? b) ...

Re: Renting from overseas

Ultimately, the only contract that matters is the tenancy agreement... the only document really enforceable in court. All the other documents are "understandings" only. Legal documents are regularly executed remotely. You sign with a notary or commissioner of oaths present who attests that...

Re: Working remotely on a visitor pass

Op might get away with it for a few months on a SVP except taxes are an issue. And bank accounts. Yes, although I think his big issue is residency, ie, he can't legally be renting a flat. If he can afford a legit AirBnb then maybe he'd be OK on that front. Here's the deal, OP. People do come in on ...

Re: Is it easier to get job after getting married and having Dependant Pass?

Spouses of Singaporean citizens do not get a DP, they get a LTVP or LTVP+ (less likely in the first three years). You can work with a letter of consent (LOC) with both passes. Is it easier? What do you mean? It is easier because you won't get kicked out of the country because you don't have a valid ...
