Tax for Non-Residents

Tax-for-Non-Residents

The Singapore personal income tax for non-residents does not offer the benefits enjoyed by a tax resident in the country. Also, the nonresident taxes of Singapore range between 15% and 20% depending on the number of days a person resides in the country.

Unlike a Singapore resident, tax benefits and incentives for Singapore non-residents are very limited. You may find confusion to distinguish a non-resident Singapore from tax resident. A person is considered a non-resident for Singapore tax purpose if he/she is a foreigner who stayed or worked in Singapore for less than 183 days in a tax year. Tax policies and rates for a non-resident are different from that of a Singapore tax resident.

Singapore taxation policies apply to a non- resident are stated below:

  • If a person is in Singapore on short-term employment for 60 days or less in a year, he/she is entitled to tax exemption. This exemption does not apply to a director of a company, a public entertainer or exercising a certain type of profession in Singapore. Such professionals include queen’s counsels, consultants, foreign experts, speakers, trainers, coaches, etc.
  • A person will be taxed at 15% or the progressive resident rate (whichever is higher), when he/she stay and work in Singapore for 61 to 182 days in a tax year. He/she may claim expenses and donations to save tax. However, they are not eligible for claiming personal reliefs.
  • Fees such as director fees, consultant fees and all other incomes are taxed at 20%
