Personal Tax

Personal Tax

Resident individuals are taxed on a progressive tax rate basis from 0% to 20%.  Non-resident individuals are taxed at 15% or the progressive tax rates, whichever results in a higher tax amount.

Personal Income Tax

Income tax rates depend on an individual’s tax residency status.  You will be treated as a tax resident for a particular year of Assessment (YA) if you are a:

  • Singapore Citizen or Singapore Permanent Resident who resides in Singapore except for temporary absences; or
  • Foreigner who has stayed /worked in Singapore (excludes director of a company) for 183 days or more in the previous year. i.e. the year before YA.

Otherwise, you will be treated as a non-resident of Singapore for tax purposes.
