My spouse is being posted from her job in the UK to Singapore. It will be under a local contract. I’m accompanying as the spouse on a Dependant’s Pass (DP)

I currently work as a remote working contractor for a UK company. I’m not paid directly by them but through an agency. Both have no issues with me working abroad since the location of my desk doesn’t matter to them. So basically I’d be based in Singapore working for a UK company whilst being paid and taxed in the UK without any connection to a Singaporean company.

My research hasn’t found any issues so far under Singaporean regulations that would either prevent this or incur Singaporean taxes. Does anyone have experience of this?

Well, my spouse contacted the MOM and been advised there’s no issue in Singapore about this.

I’ll be paying my employment taxes in the UK whilst working for a UK company.
