Cross-border business transactions are increasing day-by-day. Certain payments to non-Singapore tax residents attract withholding tax. As withholding tax deduction and accountability lie with the Singapore payers, they may be liable for tax penalties if they do not have an understanding of Singapore's withholding tax requirements. Join us for this half-day seminar where we share the basic principles of Singapore withholding tax and give you a better understanding of how to minimise your company's tax risks and avoid potential tax penalties.


Outline:

  • What is withholding tax?
  • Types of payments subject to withholding tax
  • Concept of permanent establishment
  • Deemed source of income – section 12
  • Administrative procedures – sections 45 and 45A
  • Deadline for payment of withholding tax
  • Penalties
