Assoc Prof Jamus Jerome Lim asked the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance whether the GST offset packages apply to Singaporeans employed overseas with no reportable tax returns.
Mr Lawrence Wong: The Assurance Package (AP) for GST and the permanent GST Voucher (GSTV) scheme are meant to offset Singaporeans’ GST expenses incurred in Singapore. To qualify for benefits, such as the cash and MediSave top-ups under AP and GSTV, the citizen must be residing in Singapore in the relevant year.
