Programme Objective

Withholding tax is an area, which tends to be overlooked by many companies. The responsibility of withholding tax deduction and accountability lies with the Singapore companies that are making the payments to non-residents. Hence, this programme aims to provide participants with the knowledge of the types of payments that are subject to withholding tax, the administrative procedures that need to be complied with.

Also, it is important to know how to avoid or reduce being ‘taxed’ in more than one country for the same source of income. Also it is for participants to have a better understanding on tax treaties and reliefs and exemptions available for Foreign Sourced Income received in Singapore.
