Fresh Graduate from U.S with 9 months working exp. HELP!

Post by scaven » Sat, 07 Jun 2008 11:37 am

Hi everyone! As you can see from my subject, I'm a fresh graduate with a supply chain management and international business degree. Recently, I got an offer from my company to be transferred over to Singapore. The offer is for $S51,100 p.a. What do you guys think of this pay? This offer is that I will be working from China most of the time. Will I get double taxation from China and Singapore?

What would the tax bracket for my pay in singapore be like?

Thank you.

In China, income tax is based on income received in China (unless you are a China citizen or "permanent" resident ).
Income tax is computed and paid monthly by the payer (and withheld from salary).

In Singapore, generally overseas income is not taxable.
However, check the IRAS website for more complete info:

Tax rates:

If you will be spending most of your time in China, you could live comfortably on that income.
It all depends on your lifestyle and expectations.

$51K includes bonuses? Is your package variable at all?
