Do people who are handicapped excempted to tax?

A friend of mine is handicapped since birth. He just came here to Singapore to be a resident. He is planning to stay here for a long time. In his country being handicapped gives him discounts, exemptions, and other privileges. Can he also get those privileges here? He does not know where to get those.

    No Name

    Singapore is a small country that is also progressive when it comes to the economy. There are many people who are handicapped at the same time working. Even they are handicapped, they are also given taxes. Remember that even when you but food and other things, tax is applied. Those who are PWD's can get discounts, still depending on the stores' policy

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%
