Understanding Singapore's taxes and regulations

Know the right answers straight from our legal partners. Thanks to its clearly defined rules, everything runs like clockwork in Singapore. Global citizens will find that order and efficiency rule the day. However, it is always good to be aware of how Singapore law applies to foreigners and expats especially when it comes to Singapore income taxes as well as the rules and regulations applying to business and home ownership.

Some useful websites to visit would be the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS) for more information on Singapore taxes, and Account and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) to know more about starting a business in Singapore.

Whilst every tax situation is different and requires a personal approach in providing realistic and effective solutions.
