Tax Refunds for Resident Entertainers

 

Public entertainers who are foreigners and physically present in Singapore for at least 183 days in the calendar year are eligible for tax refunds.

To claim for tax refund, the resident public entertainer must:

  1. Be physically present in Singapore for at least 183 days in the calendar year concerned; and
  2. Complete  Application for Resident Status for Public Entertainers  form.
  • Am I entitled to a tax refund of the withholding tax if my engagements in Singapore add up to 183 days or more in a calendar year?

    Yes. When your stay adds up to 183 days, you will be treated as a tax resident and the payer can stop withholding the tax for that calendar year.

    You can apply for tax refund for any tax paid over and above that of a tax resident. Please complete the form Application For Resident Status For Public Entertainers form.
