Singapore continuously reviews its international tax policy to ensure its economy remains a sustainable and attractive destination for businesses. Given its small domestic market, Singapore needs to support its home-grown businesses with relevant tools to venture into the larger international market. This enables Singapore-based businesses to expand overseas and reach out to a wider pool of international customers.

As a responsible international tax jurisdiction, Singapore also has in place an active policy of international tax co-operation to prevent and tackle cross border tax evasion.

Singapore’s international tax policy is conducted primarily through aspects of domestic law governing international taxation, avoidance of double taxation agreements and other agreements providing for international tax cooperation.
