Yes, you can be a tax resident of Singapore and enjoy Singapore tax rates if you;
a. stay or work in Singapore
i. for at least 183 days in a calendar year; or
ii. continuously for three consecutive years; or
b. work in Singapore for a continuous period straddling two calendar years and your total period of stay is at least 183 days.
This applies to foreign employees who entered Singapore from 1 Jan 2007 but excludes directors of a company, public entertainers or professionals.
If you are issued with a work pass that is valid for at least one year, you will also be treated as a tax resident upfront. However, your tax residency status will be reviewed at the point of tax clearance when you cease your employment based on the tax residency rules. If your stay in Singapore is less than 183 days, you will be regarded as a non-resident.
