Remote sellers must register for GST if the Singaporean taxable turnover exceeded 1 million SGD in the past 12 months (retrospective basis) or is likely to exceed 1 million SGD in the next 12 months (prospective basis).
A special registration rule applies to remote sellers of digital services. As of Jan 1, 2020, non-resident suppliers must register under the Overseas Vendor Registration regime if in a calendar year:
- They have a global turnover exceeding 1 million SGD.
