Provide Singapore tax information

Developers based in Singapore are required to either provide a Singapore GST Registration number in App Store Connect, or indicate a non-registered status for Singapore GST.

If you do not provide a Singapore GST Registration Number or indicate non-registered status, Apple’s commissions earned in relation to your sales on apps and in-app purchases on the App Store in Singapore will be considered taxable under the Singapore GST Act. Completing Singapore tax forms in App Store Connect are required to ensure your proceeds are calculated correctly.

Note: Singapore GST registration number is different from a Singapore Tax ID. For more information about Singapore GST registration, consult your tax advisor or visit the IRAS website.

Required role: Account Holder, Admin, or Finance. View role permissions.
