TAXES FOR SMES
Tuesday, February 25 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pmComplimentary
Singapore’s business friendly ecosystem and strong relationship with the U.S. has led to over 4,000 American companies operating in this city-state. While opportunities in Singapore and the region are abound, an international presence also means an even stronger responsibility for Americans to maintain their taxes.
Taxes can be intimidating and confusing. Fortunately, there are experts to help demystify the constantly evolving tax landscape. Join us at AmCham for a discussion of the key tax rules and how business owners and investors can minimize their tax burden. This panel will discuss how the new rules are impacting:
– U.S. exposed owners of Singapore SME companies,
– Singapore SME companies controlled by U.S. exposed owners,
– Singapore SME companies doing business with the U.S., and
– Singapore investors in U.S. assets.
