Tax Exemption Under DTA Treaty

Postby chirag87 » Mon, 06 Jul 2009 12:28 pm

Hi,

I am an Indian, working here since last 3 months. I plan to leave the Singapore soon. I understand that in such situation I am supposed to pay 15% tax. However, I came to know that there is something called Double Tax Exemption and it is possible to avoid paying full tax in Singapore. Does anyone has any information regarding this?

Depends on where your tax home is and whether or not Singapore has a Tax Treaty with that country. As an example, the US does not have a tax treaty so you pay taxes in both places on the same income. (with certain breaks given by the US - no breaks given by Singapore).
