First, you have to note that the amount of income tax you have to pay depends on your tax residency status in Singapore.
You are considered a tax resident for the year if you:
- have stayed or worked for at least 183 days in a calendar year or for a continuous period of over 2 years; or
- have stayed or worked for 3 consecutive years continuously; or
- have been issued a work pass that is valid for a year (treated as tax resident upfront).
For further information on income tax and tax residency status, visit IRAS website at
Next, you have to file an Income Tax Return if you have received a letter, form or an SMS from IRAS informing you to do so.
If you are resident in Singapore, you can e-File your completed tax form from 1 Mar to 18 Apr every year. If you intend
to paper file, please submit your completed tax form by 15 Apr of each year.
We can assist you in the preparation of your income tax returns and checking for applicable tax reliefs, including checking
for special tax schemes such as the Not Ordinary Resident (NOR) scheme and Area Representative Scheme (ARS).
