SINGAPORE: All Singaporeans aged 21 and above this year will get a one-off SG Bonus of up to S$300 each as the Budget for 2017 came in with a surplus of almost S$10 billion.

SINGAPORE: The much-rumoured goods and services tax (GST) increase was confirmed by Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat during his Budget 2018 speech on Monday (Feb 19), and it will go up from 7 per cent currently to 9 per cent sometime in the period between 2021 and 2025.
