Revenue stamp?

Post by Kimi » Tue, 06 Dec 2005 11:05 pm

I know it only in Japanese... 収入印紙 (shuunyuu inshi) which is basically a stamp with higher value than postal stamp to replace payment by cash and to be attached on the receipt or back home to sort of make a paper legal...
I think the direct translations are:
fiscal stamp // revenue stamp // stamp duty // stamp revenue
Any idea where I can find this kind of stamp?
Cheers ears.

This is very common in Europe and is used to pay fines or to validate some licenses... It seems that it doesn't exist (anymore) in Singapore.

I am getting a bit confused, do you need to buy some to pay something, or you want to collect them??

Need to write a letter of authority to assign a family member to do something on my behalf and back home I would have to sign on top of this stamp.

Do you mean a power of attorney?

It's quite common in South East Asia as well I think.
I will need one as well, to put the stamp on the agreement paper for the two parties to sign on top of the stamp on the paper.
So it doesn't exist anymore here? :(

Singapore is more inline with British or Western practice insomuch as they use the "Power of Attorney" as opposed to the stamp. It basically does the same thing and can be executed by most Lawyers here. As an example, Allen & Gledhill, a noted legal firm here in Singapore, years ago, executed a power of attornery for an Australian who owned a business here, to allow me to act on her behalf in the winding up of her Pte Ltd Company here in Singapore while indemnifying me personally of any liablity. I was the General Manager at the time, but I was not an officer of the company (director or co secretary). The power of attorney can be as wide ranging or limited in scope as you direct.

Would one need the power of attorney if it's only subletting a room for a short period of time, I wonder? Or the signs of both parties on the agreement would be enough?

And if I sublet a room of your house to a hooligan who subsequently trashes not only the room but the whole house. "Who ya gonna call!" Ghostbusters?

Think I would like to have the piece of paper thank you very much. :mrgreen:

Errr... I did say there is going to be a paper signed by both parties, but the question is whether the sign of both parties alone would be enough without the power of attorney. So is it?

Being an American, do you really think if you rented a place, even though it doesn't belong to you, to a hooligan who trashes the place, you're not going to be sued by the owner? :P
Or that's probably cause you've been here for too long aye? ;)
