Standard deductions exist for residents which help to lower the amount of taxable income. One of the most common personal reliefs is the earned income relief. The amount for this varies according to your age. Note that personal reliefs on a whole have a maximum cap of $80,000 per year.

Non-residents are not eligible for any deductions and are taxed at either a flat rate of 15% or the progressive rates according to the tax brackets for residents, which ever is higher. In other words, tax rates range from 15% to 22% for non-residents. Additionally, it is important to note that non-residents who work as a director are simply taxed at a flat rate of 22% (the highest tax bracket).

Social Security in Singapore

The central provident fund (CPF) is the national pension scheme of Singapore. Participation is mandatory for citizens and permanent residents only. Contributions are made by both employees and employers. For employees, contribution rates range from 5% to 20% depending on income and age. Low income earners under a certain threshold do not have to contribute and high income earners have a maximum cap on their required contributions. All contributions are tax deductible.

Resident status and income tax in Singapore

Singapore taxes both residents and non-residents generally only on income that accrues in or is derived from Singapore. For income derived overseas, that is only taxable if it is received by a resident individual through a partnership in Singapore.

For the most part, individuals are considered to be resident taxpayers if they reside in Singapore or they are physically present or work in Singapore for 183 days or more during a calendar year preceding the year of assessment. Several exceptions exist with one being that individuals who stay or work in Singapore for at least 183 days spanning two calendar years will still be considered a resident taxpayer for both of those years despite not having 183 days separately in each of those years.
