SINGAPORE - Reiterating that it is a matter of when and not if taxes will be raised, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said that "well before the time comes", the Government will explain to Singaporeans what the money is needed for and show how it will benefit the young and old.

He was speaking at the People's Action Party (PAP) convention on Sunday (Nov 19), where he touched on the PAP government's priorities when Parliament reconvenes after it is prorogued following the Budget next year.

GST tax hike in S’pore ‘likely’ but not in near term, experts say

By Kenneth Cheng
Published20 November, 2017
Updated 21 November, 2017

SINGAPORE — Raising the Goods and Services Tax (GST) is the likeliest means through which Singapore could bump up tax revenues, though there is no pressing need to undertake such a "politically challenging" move anytime soon, economists and tax experts said on Monday (Nov 20).

They were responding to a speech by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Sunday, where he reiterated that it was a matter of when, and not if, taxes would be raised. While the Government has enough revenue for the current term, future expenditure is expected to go up significantly in areas such as social safety nets and services — including healthcare — and investments in infrastructure, he pointed out.

what do you think?
2012 announced GST to be increased. In 2015GE, 69.9% OVERWHELMINGLY supported GST increase, so now let us move on and suffer together in silence.

Singapore set for tax hike: What could it be and when?

By Tang See Kit @SeeKitCNA
21 Nov 2017 07:38PM (Updated: 21 Nov 2017 07:45PM)


SINGAPORE: A rise in the goods and services tax (GST) is one way the Government could raise revenue to finance the country’s spending needs, though economists are divided on when that could happen if this option was pursued.


The taxman could also be mulling a further rise in “sin” taxes or having duties on digital goods and services.
