As for MS : from what I know, I don't remember anybody being stopped at the point of departure for not paying taxes, though the system can finally find you out, depending upon how much is the tax assesment ..
@Ecureilx ; this is the linked you SHOULD read
Below is some of the notes taken out from IRAS
Yes, your employer is required to seek clearance before you leave Singapore. Your employer should complete the Form IR21 (Notification of a Non-Citizen Employee's Cessation of Employment or Departure From Singapore) by providing details of your income (including benefits-in-kind such as accommodation) from your employment in Singapore.
I am not here to quarrel nor having a debate on who is right or wrong or for whatever reasons. I used to work for the ministries in the 70s, even back then the system are already linked. Not as stream line and complicated as before.
Just take a look at PCC at Cantonment or Mindef at Bukit Timah, billions are spent on information technology alone. From Biometric, Iris, Bar Code you name it is all here.
Just think for a second why did Ryan Goh or Francis Seow or Joshua and the likes got hammered big time by the Gahmen.? How did they managed to collect so much informations on them that can warrants them as "undesirable immigrant or political dissidents"
To my knowledge now there are about 12 agencies linked in Singapore, whether you will be flag or not at border control , this I cannot guarrantee but the informations are there to follow and why take the risk and play Russian Roullette.
Anyway Nath21 is not new to this forum nor a troll, he does contributes informations for other forumers including myself which helps me too. On top of that he is an accredited CPA which speaks something about his intergrity. I think a little a bit of space should be given to him.
It is possible for a bill of $52K on pregnancy if complications arises both for mother and child which requires specialist care and top of that not getting subsidies can really put someone out of pocket just by giving birth here..
I had knee recontruction before and I knew exactly how it feels like going under the knife and not getting the proper treatment required.
While I can understand where you are coming from but not in Nath21 case as I believe he has a legit case here where we should take note for future references. Nath 21 is under tremendoues pressure to settle all his things before leaving Singapore and top of that with the wifey pregnant, you cannot get worse than that.
We are here in this forum to help each other for the betterment of our lives. I do at times take pot shot at trolls or those one line poster and I am guilty of that but you can smell a troll a mile away. So let's help him if we can so that he leaves with fond memories rather than a bad taste in his mouth.
Peace to all.
