This session discusses the concept of withholding tax and the withholding tax requirements of Singapore-based companies on payments made to foreign-based companies. In this respect, this session focuses both the taxpayer's residency status and procedural aspects of determining income streams subject to withholding tax under the Singapore Income Tax Act. "Tax planning is all about long-term thinking." Understanding your fundamental tax rights (entitlements) will allow you to manage your tax risk (and saving tax legally) with confidence.
IRAS has recently published a ruling related to tax residency status, and sections 12. It is an exciting time to be exploring this topic. This session is a mix of practical experience and academic knowledge.
