Is the taxes that have been added to me is legal?

When you are working on a company, there will be taxes that will be deducted to your salary every cut off of your pay. You should know that everyone in the world is paying taxes to contribute to the community. But I have realized that my salary is low that the usual pay. But I work my ass off to get the salary I deserve.

    Singapore follows a progressive resident tax rate starting at 0% and ending at 22% above S$320,000. There is no capital gain or inheritance tax. Individuals are taxed only on the income earned in Singapore. The income earned by individuals while working overseas is not subject to taxation barring a few exceptions. If the company is not doing the right tax deduction you can report them to the IRAS.

Offers better trading conditions for retail clients

iOCBCfx is a properly regulated Singaporean forex broker. Despite having a somewhat limited forex portfolio, when compared to other local forex brokers, it still offers better trading conditions for retail clients; lower deposit, higher leverage, even though much lower than that of larger international brokers, and tighter spreads. In some respect they are comparable to those of the global players present in Singapore and can turn out to be very helpful for those who wish to do business with a local broker.

The commission is a minimum $1

I signed up for a pre-funded account last year, commission rate were very low. But if I can share a little hack as it were, indicate an amount higher than $100 for MIP because if you do so your commission rate would be more than 1%.For example, if you indicate $100 for a stock priced at $25, they would purchase 3 units for you as they take into consideration their fees in that $100. The commission is a minimum $1, thus your commission rate is approx. 1.33% instead of 1%
