Singapore has concluded the following international tax agreements:

A DTA between Singapore and another jurisdiction serves to prevent double taxation of income earned in one jurisdiction by a resident of the other jurisdiction. A DTA also makes clear the taxing rights between Singapore and her treaty partner on different types of income arising from cross-border economic activities between the two jurisdictions. The agreements also provide for reduction or exemption of tax on certain types of income. View a brief explanation on the application of a DTA.

Generally, Singapore’s DTAs include provisions for the exchange of information for tax purposes. Singapore also concludes EOI Arrangements for the exchange of information for tax purposes. Treaty partners may make a request for information for tax purposes to the Comptroller of Income Tax. View Administration of the Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes.
