Tax-for-Non-Residents

The Singapore tax for non-residents is applied when a foreigner stays and works in Singapore for less than 183 days. A non-resident has to pay 15% flat rate or according to the existing income tax rate as personal tax. Turn to TaxationServices.com.sg for getting more information on how a non-resident can save tax.

Singapore has a well-regulated tax system and the country follows a territorial basis of taxation. Tax policies for residents and non-residents are different. A foreigner in Singapore is termed as non-resident when he/she stayed and worked here for less than 183 days in a year. Non-residents are taxed only on income derived from or accrued in Singapore. Unlike Singapore tax residents, benefits or incentives of tax for Singapore non-residents are very limited.

Singapore taxation policies for non-residents are stated below:

  • Employee income of a foreigner is exempt from tax if he/she worked here only for 60 days or less in a year.
  • Tax exemption does not apply to the director of a company, a public entertainer or professionals such as foreign speakers, queen’s counsels, foreign experts, consultants, trainers, coaches etc.
  • The foreign employee who is in Singapore for 61 to 182 days in a year, will be taxed on all income earned in Singapore
  • For tax saving, a non-resident can claim expenses and donation. However, a non-resident employee is not eligible to claim personal relief.
  • Employment income of a non-resident is taxed at 15% or the progressive resident rate, whichever gives rise to a higher tax amount.
  • Income such as director fees, consultant fees and all other incomes are taxed at 20%.
