Re: Why did this forum die?

It's mainly because of Facebook groups.

I disagree that this forum is dead, but certainly the newer generation of expats are more
familiar with Facebook as a platform and join the relevant facebook group of interest there.

Re: Singapore/Australia Double Tax agreement

Why would you remain tax resident of both? Honestly for that sort of peanuts I would not have reported it as the ATO doesn't have auto access to bank details in Singapore but I assume you've been caught out or somehow think you might be. Not exactly "caught". It's more of a case where Australia had...

Re: Singapore/Australia Double Tax agreement

I believe you can only be a tax resident of one country at any point in time, and that's the one you pay tax to. USA excepted. Usually it's where you spend the majority of the year. Sorry I don't have specific Aus knowledge though. Australia is a bit different. They want a piece of everyone's tax p...

Singapore/Australia Double Tax agreement

Dear Brains Trust, Wanting to find out if there are any Aussies here that can shed light on what happens if you remain tax resident in both Singapore and Australia. I'm understanding that from the tax treaty between Singapore and Australia, that Singapore gets first "dibs" in taxing us if we are emp...

Re: Where to buy second-hand smartphones?

Just buy new. Some of the xiaomi phones are quite powerful, comparable with specs of iphone or samsung, and very affordable.

Also if you get a model with replaceable battery, stock up on 2 or 3 batteries as spare. Consumables like batteries are very cheap.

Re: Where can I find good free vpn?

Hola is the best, but like all free services, you run the risk of getting hacked or people piggybacking your internet connection to boost their download speed.

I still use it though.

Re: Looking for EZ Link Card Reader

Why bother? Its easier just registering a DBS credit card for autotopup. No fees, and you can choose as low as $20 top up increments.

I've never looked back since setting it up, and you also have that last $3that you normally can't spend , suddenly unlocked for use once you make the switch.
