    Default Need help and advice from Friends here, regarding to freelancer

    Hi, dear friends, as a graduated student from local uni this year, I want to be a photography freelancer. But it is not easy for me to start as i am not PR or local yet.

    So far I have known that I need to register with ARCA as self-employed. Anyone knows that whether i have a high chance to be PR as a photography freelancer? Only need to pay attention to income tax and medisave as freelancer?

    Plus, currently I got PR invitation letter from ICA

    Readlly need your advice, thank you very vey much!

    pardon me, but as a non-local/PR, you're entitled to medisave?

    Hey, you can apply for a Singpass, and after that you can apply to be a sole-proprietor with ACRA via their website. It is easy to register and you will need to contribute your medisave, which you can put it via giro. All you need is to think of a company name, and make sure that it is still available Good luck

    Since you already have an PR invitation letter from ICA, why not just ask them?
    I am sure they will guide you in the right direction

    best is to get your PR first and then become a freelancer
