Canadians in Singapore: Paying taxes?

Postby antoniele » Wed, 07 Apr 2010 2:40 pm

Hello, are there any Canadians in Singapore that can recommend an accountant or a process on how to file my 2009 taxes for Ontario, Canada? I am currently living in Singapore, it's my first year of paying taxes as I was in Singapore for less than 60 days for the 2008 tax year.

My experience tells me that you should look for an accountant in Canada who is familiar with treatment of foreign earned income. With nearly 10 times the population of Canada, it is hard to find a US accountant in Singapore.

Singapore taxes are a breeze.

IT's actually not that complicated. Go to the CCRA web site - there are instructions there for non residents. You can still use the usual tax prep software programs. But you have to mail in your taxes to the International tax services office. Address is on CCRA web site. Unless you have a very complicated return with businesses at home, it's pretty simple to do yourself.

The best way is to use tax software. You can simply fill things in the software and you can electrically file it. However, since you are outside of Canada, your tax balance would be ZERO.
