Property Taxation Guide

If you have a real estate property in Singapore then you will have to pay tax for it in the form of property tax. As long as you have a property in the country, you need to pay tax and the real estate assets that this tax is levied on include offices, factories, HDB flats, etc. In case you are a foreign individual living in the country, then you may not know much about how the taxation on properties is carried out and so on.

Generally the amount that you will need to pay to the government will depend on the value of the property because a certain percentage of the value is treated as tax. This value is not the same annually because the value this year may not be the same as the value of the property the previous year. Most of the time, the tax rate for most properties is at 10%; except a residential property that you own because this kind of property has a tax percentage of 4% only.

Every year property owners are expected to pay the tax by the end of January. This means that it is important you pay for the tax your property by the 31st of January every year. The tax that you will need to pay will be assessed by the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore and you are going to receive the bill in the month of December.
