  1. A Goods and Services Tax (Amendment) Bill was passed in Parliament on Nov.19. With this being passed, Singaporeans can expect to pay GST for overseas services in 2020, including that of digital services such as Netflix and Spotify. This means that business-to-consumer services will have to register via an overseas vendor registration regime imposed on them. Criteria for businesses to be taxed Other companies providing video and music streaming services, mobile applications and software may also be affected. According to the second reading speech on the Goods and Services Tax (Amendment) Bill by Second Minister for Finance Lawrence Wong, such companies will have to register if they meet the two-tier criteria of: Having a global annual turnover of S$1 million or more Making sales of digital services of at least S$100,000 to Singapore consumers. The tax is expected to bring in an additional S$90 million of tax revenue every year. This comes as part of new rules to protect local retailers, by ensuring “both imported and local services are treated on a level playing field and accorded the same GST treatment.” Reverse Charge mechanism Between businesses, a “Reverse Charge mechanism” would be implemented instead. Instead of having the business or company based overseas accounting for the GST, the GST for goods and services would be accounted for by the local importing company. This would not affect a large number of businesses, however, as businesses which can claim a full refund of the GST they incur on their purchases, including imported services would not have this mechanism applied to them. It is slated to “affect mainly financial institutions and residential property developers” – those who were unable to have a full GST refund in the first place. How much more would I have to pay for my Netflix? As per the Goods and Services Tax Act, the rate of GST would be 7%. It was previously announced during Budget that GST would be raised to 9% some time 2021 and 2025.

  4. After its introduction of its current form in 1998, all new Jimny coming next year, after 20 years. Next-gen Suzuki Jimny 4×4 undisguised images leakedhttps://paultan.org/2017/08/25/next-gen-suzuki-jimny-4x4-undisguised-images-leaked/ The Suzuki Jimny has been around in its current third-generation form for almost a decade now, but the tiny off-roader is set to get a reboot at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show that happens in October. Images of the next-generation Suzuki Jimny have now been leaked ahead of its Tokyo debut, and it shows the new car undisguised. The images you see here are likely to be from official presentation slides. They show a very square cut 4×4 that recalls the second-generation Jimny’s more basic design. Tall sides, big glass areas and vertical slats on the grille provide the link to Jimnys past, but the toy-like face is also modern and fits in well with Suzuki’s cool range of small cars – the Alto, Hustler and Ignis are all cute little things. The Jimny is no modern crossover, and will likely retain all of its famous off-road capabilities. A tailgate-mounted spare wheel keeps it real and chunky overfenders and black bumpers hint at its purpose. There’s also a look at the new Jimny’s interior. The dashboard is typically shallow and upright, and while there are similarities with the Ignis, it’s clear that Suzuki went for a ‘tough’ look with overtly rugged cues – see the instrument binnacle and exposed “bolts”. There’s a big infotainment screen in the middle. No specs leaked along with the pics, but possible engines could include Suzuki’s 1.0 litre three-cylinder “Boosterjet” turbo and a naturally-aspirated 1.2 litre four-cylinder unit from the Ignis. As a kei-car in Japan, a 660cc turbo triple is regulation. Suzuki Jimny Replacement Spotted On Public Roads For The First Timehttp://www.carscoops.com/2017/08/suzuki-jimny-replacement-spotted-on.html

The device is expected to hit the market sometime this fall. Will the news convince any of our readers to jump ship from Samsung? Let us know below.

  18. More people are expected to be retrenched this year compared with the figure last year, as signs of an economic slowdown become more evident, Lim Swee Say said yesterday, in a report by the Straits Times. As demand slows, some companies are already putting their workers on a shorter work week, such as having them work only four days a week, the labour chief noted. But he stressed that the situation is nowhere close to the economic downturn of 2008. The newspaper reported that Mr Lim said the NTUC is keeping track on a weekly basis the number of workers who may be affected by potential retrenchments ahead of any slowdown in the economy. Speaking to reporters at the opening of the upgraded Bedok Community Centre, Mr Lim explained, "The NTUC, together with the WDA (Workforce Development Agency), is already working with some of the companies that are beginning to see the early signs of slowing down. We're working with them to send their workers - those on shorter work-weeks and some of their potential excess workers - to go on training before they take any action on retrenchment." His remarks came a day after Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam warned of rough times ahead for Singapore, given the 'very real possibility' of a severe slowdown of the global economy. He said any slowdown in the economy is not related to the size of the companies, but by the sector. He cited electronics, even though signs of a slowdown are not across the board in the sector. Mr Lim said: "Those in the electronics, like personal computers, are more affected, whereas those supplying parts and components to the automobile sector are less affected at the moment." However, Mr Lim said the retrenchment situation today is unlikely to be anywhere close to the numbers seen in 2008.And while the outlook remains uncertain, he said the labour movement is making necessary preparations so that when the time comes, it can launch them into action. At the same event, Mr Lim also said the review on CPF contributions will continue. This is because more Singaporeans are living and working longer. "When we call for this review of the CPF contributions, we're looking at it as a medium- to long-term structural issue. I think that will continue. Of course in terms of short-term, there'll be ups and downs," said Mr Lim. But he stressed that short-term fluctuations and longer-term structural issues should be kept separate.

  23. There’s nothing in the world quite so cynical as advertising. Most of us just accept it as a fact of life, which it is. For some of us there’s always a little growl of annoyance at the back of our minds whenever we’re forced to put up with someone trying to sell us something. On one hand, a reasonable decision has to be that anyone selling anything needs to make consumers aware of what’s available. You can’t always rely on buyers to actively seek you out. Advertising is fair enough, on that basis. On the other hand there have always been limits to how pervasive this commercial intrusion into our lives can get. Roadside billboards, radio ads, TV ads and printed ads are a passive attempt to engage with people with money to spend. They’re fine. You don’t have to pay attention if you don’t want to, even though lots of people do nonetheless. No one can argue that you don’t sometimes gain useful information from advertising. It’s good to know, for example, that there’s a car parts shop half an hour’s drive from your house that you didn’t know about, and never would have known about if not for advertising. On the other hand, the age of connected devices has brought with it a very different type of advertising. We’re talking about pop-ups, banner ads that are impossible to close down, and pre/mid-roll on videos. These are the commercial realities of the digital age. Advertising helps keep publications like this running, so it would be mighty hypocritical of us to call it all bad. But it’s about to get worse. This week we learned of a system built by an American company called Telenav. It will allow advertisers to pipe their commercials directly to your car’s media screen when the car is stationary. Adverts you never asked for and never agreed to accept. This, we have a problem with. Adverts will be delivered either under threat of financial penalties if you don’t ‘choose’ to watch them, or with a bribe-shaped discount on the cost of your connected car services if you do watch them. It depends on which way you want to look at it. A Telenav spokesperson said: With technology already able to check which way your face is turned and which way your eyes are looking, the car could know whether you’re watching these commercials or not. It may even pause them if you look away, or refuse to let you access the net until you’ve watched the whole advert(s). Forgive me if I’m being over-dramatic, but that sounds like being held to ransom in your own car. Your car is your personal space. It’s a private cocoon that you keep exactly the way you want it. You make it look the way you want, you make it sound the way you want and you make it feel the way you want. Your choice of model alone is a reflection of who you are, even if the car itself is unmodified. It’s yours, and only you should get to decide what goes on inside it.
