Re: Tax Clearance

In theory, they should have still filed the IR-21 so you income would already be lodged with IRAS. Currently if this was your first job in Singapore, then no, you would not have any tax liability, however, once you work over 60 days, yes you must pay taxes on it.

Re: Will holding contract jobs affect PR ?

In reality, it could be affected because you need to be employed both during the submission of the application and during the formalities if your application gets approved. Right, so even if you are still under the contract, the government might deem that your contract might not be renewed, hence w...

Re: Contract job will affect PR or no?

After obtaining PR, no. Before, possibly, but cannot confirm. Right, so even if you are still under the contract, the government might deem that your contract might not be renewed, hence will not grant you PR? What if your contract is renewed? How would they actually take into account to consider t...

Let's put it this way, if you are applying for another position in Singapore, you better as the employer will find out anyway when they apply for your next work pass. When that happens, guess what.
