Key Takeaways
Thank you for joining our session on 18th Dec to discuss how foreign sourced income tax exemption may impact your investment from 2022 onwards.


While we managed to address many doubts amidst intermittent internet connection, many more questions await confirmation from authorities.


We are working on compiling a list of FAQs and will set another date in the coming months on Foreign Sourced Income tax exemption, here are some of the takeaways from last weekend:


1. Tax on foreign sourced income remitted into the country will be implemented from 1st Jan 2022 with Gross Foreign Sourced Income to be taxed at 3% during the transition period till 30th June 2022, after which it will be taxed at prevailing income tax rate.

2. Bilateral or unilateral tax credit is allowed if the same income has been taxed abroad, subjected to availability of documentation to substantiate the foreign tax credit.

3. Capital gains on shares and unit trusts are not taxable.


We hope you have enjoyed our weekend webinar series covering topics from China to connectivity and sustainability to solar power.


We look forward to welcoming you to our next webinar on 10th January on Global Market Outlook – The Year Ahead and Reflections on China on 10th January 2022 between 4pm to 6pm.  Register now
