Income tax in Sweden

Sweden’s got one of the highest personal income tax rates in the world, clocking in at 56.9% Foreigners living in Sweden are taxed based on how long they’ve lived in the country. To be considered a Swedish resident for tax purposes, an expat must either have a permanent home in Sweden or have stayed in the country for more than six months in a year.

Non-residents who are working in Sweden on a temporary basis are usually taxed only on that income earned while in the country, while residents are taxed on their income, including capital gains and pensions, regardless of the country of origin.

Residents are subject to Swedish taxes on their worldwide income. Foreign key personnel, who are experts and scientists with knowledge and skills that are scarce in Sweden, may benefit from an expatriate tax regime. Expatriates may take advantage of the tax regime only if their applications are approved.

The regime applies to individuals whose periods of assignment will not exceed five years, and tax relief may be granted for only the first three years. An individual who has resided in Sweden at any time during the five years preceding the calendar year when the assignment starts is not entitled to tax relief under this regime. Non-residents who perform work in Sweden are taxed at a flat rate of 25%, and no deductions are allowed. This tax is imposed as a final withholding tax.

Income tax in Singapore

Singapore has a single level of government so taxation is less than in some countries. Personal income tax starts at 2% on the first $5,000 and then gradually increases to 28% on income over $400,000. As an expat, your income tax will depend on how much you earn, whether you’re a tax resident, and if your home country has a double tax avoidance treaty with Singapore.

Singapore currently has tax treaties with more than 50 different countries. If you’re non-resident, you’re generally subject to tax at flat rates. For employment income, this is 15% or the resident rates, whichever is higher. You’ll be regarded as resident if, in the year preceding, you reside in Singapore for 183 days or more.

Income tax in Ireland

If you’re resident in Ireland, you must pay tax on your worldwide income there, that is if you’re in Ireland for 183 days or more in the tax year or for 280 days or more in the tax year and the previous year. But if you’re living in Ireland for less days, you’re not considered tax resident and pay tax only on income earned in Ireland.

Tax is charged as a percentage of your income. The percentage that you pay depends on the amount of your income. The first part of your income, up to €33 800, is taxed at 20%. This is known as the standard rate of tax and the amount that it applies to is known as the standard rate tax band. The remainder of your income is taxed at the higher rate of tax, 40% in 2017.

Most countries have double tax agreements with Ireland. These agreements usually spare you from double taxation. Under many bilateral tax agreements, the amount of tax you paid in the country where you work will be offset against the tax you owe in your country of residence. In other cases, the income earned in the country where you work might be taxable only in that country and exempt from tax in your country of residence.

Income tax in Holland

Residents are subject to income tax in Holland on their worldwide income. Non-residents are subject to tax on specific Netherlands-source income only. Residence is determined based on circumstances. For Dutch residency, it is essential to determine whether the individual has permanent personal ties with Holland. If you live abroad but receive income that is taxable in Holland, you’re generally a ‘non-resident taxpayer’.

Non-residents can also apply to be treated as residents for tax purposes (in order to gain access to Dutch deductible items) and an additional category of partial non-resident taxpayers covers those eligible for the so-called 30 % ruling. This provides the option for residents of Holland to be taxed as a “partial” non-resident taxpayer. Dutch income tax is levied on three categories (boxes) of income. Each box has its own rules to calculate taxable income, its own tax rates and exemptions.
