UPDATE: Singapore writes to e-commerce companies regarding their GST obligations

6 January 2022

The Singaporean tax authorities are writing to global e-commerce businesses to provide further information on how to register for the upcoming Goods and Service Tax (GST) on supplies of low value goods and non-digital (remote) services in the country.

The Singaporean government previously confirmed that from 1 January 2023, it will introduce a GST on imported sales of low value goods and non-digital services at a rate of 7%. However, it has now confirmed that this will be subject to a S$100,000 registration threshold (approx. £54,000) and has stated that impacted businesses should make an application to register by 1 October 2022 in order to be ready for the January 2023 deadline.
