i think should be 9% increase. Looking at the trend of how GST have increased over the years. It may also go up to 10% depending on how hungry they are. We are at the loosing end. There is nothing that we can do.

Singapore to continue restructuring economy, investing in infrastructure in 2018: PM Lee
Read more at https://www.channeln...ge-2018-9823236

SINGAPORE: Amid an uncertain external environment, Singapore must press on with plans to restructure its economy and invest in its infrastructure in 2018, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said in his New Year message on Sunday (Dec 31).

This includes continuing to implement Industry Transformation Maps, and using SkillsFuture to inculcate lifelong learning and help workers to adapt and grow in new jobs, Mr Lee said.

Healthcare facilities are also being expanded to prepare for an ageing population, and more pre-schools being built to give children a strong start in life, he added.

As for infrastructure, the Government is working on improving rail reliability and growing the MRT network, Mr Lee said. Major infrastructure projects in the pipeline include Changi Airport’s Terminal 5, the Tuas Megaport and the high-speed rail link to Kuala Lumpur.

“All these are essential investments in our future. They require time and resources, and will stretch way beyond this term of Government. We have to plan well ahead for them,” he said.

“This is how we have built today’s Singapore – each generation working and saving for the future, building on what it inherited and passing on something better to the next generation. This was the creed that drove the Pioneer Generation of Singaporeans, and it must animate our generation too.”




Looks like 2018 is a reset year.

Need a very robust budget to support.

Get the wallet ready.

My gut feeling is also the removal of $400 allowance before you are taxed on GST, more so for all online goods bought from overseas.

All e-commerce transaction can be levied with GST by bank/credit card/ e-payment facilitators or courier for all overseas purchases that need to be shipped to SG.

My gut feeling is also the removal of $400 allowance before you are taxed on GST, more so for all online goods bought from overseas.

I think so too.
It's these smaller amount transactions that make the bulk of ecommerce transactions

i dont think ecommerce will be affected by this budget to the extend of imposing GST. This move has to be in line with international e commerce taxation.

Actually for the salaries person, I think the budget makes little difference. Except perhaps for kopitam discussion and one or two unexpected policy like immediately lifting of surcharge for buying 2nd property.

The government knows the tolerance of the population so they may push to the limit with taxes and service fees.

Lets hope the new year celebration elation hangs until after the budget announcement

If GST is going up ... I think  it is unlikely it will be graduated. Graduated increase will create chaos for the accounting systems, cash registers, etc for the next 2-3 years.

 

I think it is likely to be a jump from 7% ->10% but when they will effect this will be the key question.

 

Any one with a inside look into their crystal ball?
