Working in Singapore for 2 months.

Post by alan20 » Mon, 22 Aug 2011 10:15 pm

Hi,

I'm in serious need of some accurate advice. I've been offered a job in Singapore for 2 months from the middle/end of september, I'll be working within a very busy hair salon as a free lance stylist. I do not have a set salary. I could estimate it at $2000 a month.

I've been searching and reading up on different work permits/passes for singapore and I don't seem to fall into the category for any of them! I've emailed MOM numerous times and called them this morning and still no help.

If anyone has advice on what I need to apply for and how I go about applying for it I would be very grateful.

Thank you.

The employer will have to apply for your employment pass. If approved, you will be able to work up to 60 days tax free, if your stay here exceeds 60 days (including days not working, you will be subject to a flat rate tax without deduction of a straight 15% of your gross income. Once you exceed 183 days you will be subject to the same graduated tax rates that residents are subject to.

All Employment Passes have to be applied for by the employer.

Thanks.

Would the manager need to complete the work permit even if I'm working there self employed but given the job through the company?
