Changed job before 180 days - tax question

Postby Bakulii » Fri, 02 Jan 2009 6:06 pm

Hi All,

Happy New Year everyone!

i started working in Singapore 1st July 2008 (on EP) but quit and joined another company in Nov.

As I was not working in Spore for more than 183 days, I had to pay the flat rate tax of 15% before I left the previous company.

My question: Since my total working days in 2008 is >183 days (ie previous + present company), will the Tax Dept re-calculate my tax based on the normal tier and make me top up only the difference for Tax Year 2008?

Thanks for your time in answering this quick question!
