Singapore to set effective corporate tax rate at 15% from 2025
By Low De Wei
(Bloomberg) — Singapore intends to set its effective tax rate for multinational enterprises at 15 per cent starting 2025, in line with a global agreement to increase the floor rate.
Singapore will join the broader international move, and implement a Domestic Top-up Tax to bring the city-state’s effective corporate tax rate to that level, Finance Minister Lawrence Wong said Tuesday in his annual budget speech, referring to the so-called BEPS 2.0 agreement.
Still, he said Singapore will monitor international developments and will “adjust” its implementation timeline if there are additional delays in implementing the global agreement.
