I don't know to what extent this is the insurmountable challenge you see it as. For example think of the EU/US subsidiaries in Asia and how they interface vs their head offices. For example when I worked in Tokyo we'd interface vs NYC in the early morning, deal with local matters during the day, then 'hand-off' to London on the close/their open. There wasn't 24hr staffing at any location and via the above there didn't need to be. It was more a case of having say a one hour window in the morning to set the direction, and another to close things out (end of day), and around and around the world and the clock it went.maybenewexpat wrote:Working in the USA while living in time zone shifted by about 12 hours wouldn't make it easy to contact other people in real time (other than working at night). Similar for working for e.g. British company (about 6 hours of time zone difference).
I wonder how much of the 24/7 is used because it's necessary, vs it's simply there.maybenewexpat wrote:I know some companies prefer working around the clock but I think that everyday real time interactions with other team members are important at work to make sure that final product is good. Even those companies that work around the clock, have teams in the given places, not single people that have nobody to talk with in real time.
IME you can answer such a question pretty simply by Googling it. I.e it's simple 'headline' info to find, either on the relevant Revenue website, and/or as press releases - not something buried deeeep in some obscure tax manual.maybenewexpat wrote:One other thing it has to do with is whether there exists any double taxation treaty agreement between the countries.
Generally, a Singapore registered company that hires an offshore person or company to perform a specific task, simply pays the person/company and takes the amount as an expense. This is true so long as no work is performed in Singapore. So, let's say you got a year long contract at $5000 per month. You stay in Cambodia for 11 months but come to Singapore for 1 month to meet with your employers, etc. Your employer would be required to withhold 15 percent of that 1 month's salary since you are a non-resident performing work in Singapore.maybenewexpat wrote:Hello,
I would like to ask you about remote jobs in Singapore. I want to live in Cambodia and work remotely in Singapore, as software engineer. Are companies likely to make remote work possible (provided I have university degree, various certificates and several years of professional experience, including the UK)? What are the laws governing double taxation avoidance (in order not to pay taxes in two countries)?
