Re: Freelancing from sg with foreign entities only

The rules: If you are not working for a company or individual that provides goods and services in Singapore or has any legal presence in Singapore, then you do not require a work permit of any sort to perform work for compensation while in Singapore.

Re: Employability of PEP vs PR

First of all, assuming that a PR can drop into your lap as easily as a PEP is truly a case of wearing rose colored glasses, and thus, consider my answers to be academic and theoretical, as the real hurdle is getting the PR in the first place. There's nothing "attractive" about a PEP to an ...

Re: Building guarantees into a contract?

You can put anything into a contract that the other side agrees to. It's all going to boil down to how valuable you are perceived to be. I have seen top sales producers, CEO's, and other "power managers" negotiate very attractive terms into their packages. You are being offered a "far...

Re: tax reporting issue for US resident in Singapore

I'm going to second SMS'es comment that you're going to want a qualified CPA for the complexities (I'm in Houston and have an excellent CPA, well qualified in foreign tax matters... she handled mine for many years). In general, active earned income is taxed in the country in which you were living wh...

Re: tax reporting issue for US resident in Singapore

By "US resident" I assume you mean that you hold a green card. Where are you physically residing, in the USA, or in Singapore?

Re: British Club Singapore - Membership

My experience is with the Am Club and the setup is going to be the same. The transferable membership that you would be purchasing costs $21,400 if bought from the club. Then you pay $180 (single) to $235 (family) per month for the privilege of walking in the door. If you've got kids who like to swim...

Re: Applying PR for my Wife Who is an Investor But not Elligible for GIP

It's disappointing that some people easily jumps into conclusions and makes the wrong judgement to say that any investor who doesn't want to setup a business/company in Singapore does not contribute to the society. Not even a single person considered/suggested social engagement and responsibility a...
