Re: Open a Sole Proprietorship on a DP and getting the LoC

As of now, here are the directions for applying for a Sole-Proprietorship given you're on a Dependent Pass:
1) Register your business name with ACRA and pay the $65 fee
2) Download and complete the LOC Form from MOM
3) Add the 6 other additional documents I mentioned in one of my earlier posts (the 6th was the signed written paragraph saying I was employing myself). I put my business logo on all forms
4) Make your way to MOM with your paperwork (or you can mail it) on Havelock, get a number and wait in the Blue Room to talk with a Work Pass Manager
5) Wait for a Response from MOM

I hope this helps!

Re: Expenses Breakdown and Salary Suggestion - Company transfer but no expat package

Yes, few %.
In my country, if you register yourself as a Citizen living in a foreign country, and you do not have any belongings/properties/etc.., you do not pay anything.
(You lose the pension apart from the minimum one as well as the health coverage unless you catch anything that must be treated with some emergency)
