Taxes in Singapore

Postby Debbie007 » Sat, 10 Jan 2009 5:26 pm

I have looked on the Singapore Government website and would like to confirm what is taxed. If the company is paying $20,000 for school fees, is that taxed at 100% or what is the percentage?

The company is going to pay 36,000 for housing per year, can I confirm that we will pay 10% of income or whichever is the lower figure?

Trips back home once a year. Will that be taxed 100% if it's a lump sum? If the company gives us the airline tickets, will that be taxed?

Are relocation expenses taxed 100% as well?

Are there any reliefs for expats?

We are planning on staying for 3 years.

Any or all help would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

The only tax concession you will receive is the same as a resident receives. Once your have been here for more than 183 days. Or, your country has a tax treaty with Singapore
