Moving to Singapore? Ask our regular expats in Singapore questions on relocation and their experience here. Ask about banking, employment pass, insurance, visa, work permit, citizenship or immigration issues.

Thanks. I have seen that item from the IRAS web page. The problem I have is that it doesn't exactly tell you where to enter the amount you are claiming.

I remember from the E-Tax page there is only a single box for Work related expenses, but nowhere to indicate what it is for.

I am trying to get onto the IRAS department for clarification, but they are very busy.

If I find out I will re-post.[/quote]

I just got through to the "Tax Help Line".

If you are filing on E-Tax (Internet), then the "Expense Claim" against your relocation allowance is input into the "Work Related Expenses" box. No description is required, but as stated in an earlier post, you must have a record and receipts of the claims in case you get audited.

Have to make sure that they are reasonable expenses. If they are for "Settling IN" you are allowed to claim purchases of one-off items (bedding, some electrical items for the kitchen). There is no list available that I can see, so make sure they are reasonable.

Yeh... and Debbie posted in January. You are on the watch list as a potential spammer.
