I have a question regarding income tax in Singapore. The IRAS website says:
I came to singapore on 1st of July 09 and am employed since then. Now if I go to India for vacation for a week will I be considered a tax resident?Under our tax residency rules, you will be regarded as a tax resident if you stay or work in Singapore for at least 183 days in a calendar year. The number of days in Singapore include weekends and public holidays
As the website mentions stay or work; even though I am on vacation, i am still on the payroll of Singapore company and will be paid for those days which means I am working in singapore isnt it, So shouldnt I be considered as a tax resident?
Please advice if my interpretation is correct.
