Deciding point of when you can pay taxes in Singapore

Post by Scandinavia » Mon, 16 Jun 2008 11:57 am

Hi,

I´m a little curious of what would decide if I could pay tax as a Singapore recident.

Is it the number of days my contract is for?

Is it the number of days I´m physically in Singapore?

Is it the number of days my employment pass states? Then does it matter if i cancel it a few days earlier than the 185 days it is valid?

Or what?

From my own country i know that the number of days in Singapore should be more than 183 days and that if taxes has been paid in Singapore, then I will not have to pay taxes at home.

Don´t know to much about Singaporian tax systems.

Found it...

If i stay or work more than 183 days in Singapore I can apperently pay taxes here as tax recident of Singapore.

That´s good then I can actually cancel my employee pass before the 183 days has passed as I will actually work more than 183 days evenso.
