Starting Image Consultant Business in Singapore

Postby SharonConnolly » Sat, 27 Jun 2009 10:22 pm

Having recently relocated here I want to start working as an Image Consultant here (I had a very good business in the UK, personal shopping, wardrobe weeding, TV appearances etc in the UK) Does anyone know...in the first instance to I actually need to start up a company? Can I just work freelance and declare earnings in a tax return?

Also what about networking opportunities. I grew my business and my friend base in the UK by networking. What is available over here - I have found the British Chamber of Commerce - anything else?

Thanks

The foreign based clubs, groups like ANZA, Many of the social networking sites like LinkIn, Facebook, etc. Basically, the same methods you would use in the UK.

Thanks
