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. Our Tax 101 series is aimed at tax and non-tax trained junior executives or anyone who has an interest in understanding the Singapore Tax system. This session is a mix of practical experience and academic knowledge.
By the end of this session, attendees should obtain a systematic understanding of knowledge of (to evaluate the effects thereon) the concept of withholding tax in the wide interdisciplinary concept, and procedural aspects of when dealing with payments made to non-residents.
