Working remotely for a UK business while on 6 month Work Holiday Pass

Post by wlock95 » Tue, 09 Oct 2018 8:28 pm

I am in need of a little advice!

So...in January I am moving to Singapore from the UK for 6 months and will be interning and working for a Singaporean company under the Work Holiday Pass (https://www.mom.gov.sg/passes-and-permi ... -programme). At the same time the UK company (no links at all to Singapore) I currently work for would like me to work for them remotely via VPN and I am keen to do so.

Do I need to pay income tax in the UK and declare personal income tax in Singapore for the work I am doing for my UK based employer?

Do I need to set myself up as a contractor in Singapore in order to work for my UK based employer?

Are there any other things I need to take into account?

Any advice would be hugely appreciated! :)
