International Tax

Singapore continually reviews its international tax policy to ensure its economy remains competitive. The policy aims to strengthen bilateral investment flows, thereby supporting 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.
