The provisions of the Brazil – Singapore DTA
The double tax treaty between Singapore and Brazil was signed by the two foreign ministers, following Brazil’s Foreign Minister three-day visit to the city-state. During the meeting, the two officials also announced that Singapore was removed from Brazil’s list of low-tax jurisdictions.
The agreement for the avoidance of double taxation and the prevention of fiscal evasion applies to all taxes on income levied by the two signatory parties. More specifically, in case of Singapore the treaty concerns the income tax and in the case of Brazil, it concerns the corporate income tax.
The DTA will enter an early ratification process. Our experts who provide accounting services in Singapore are able to give you complete information on how this deal applies the taxation of profits derived from Singapore if you are a foreign investor from Brazil.
Singapore – Brazil economic cooperation
Bilateral cooperation and trade between Brazil and Singapore have increased in recent years, and so have reciprocal investments. The two parties have also talked about entering a free trade agreement between Singapore and the Mercosur member states consisting of Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay. The aim of the free trade agreement would be the promotion of investment between these states but also an increased trade volume.
