Stamp duty goes up for foreign purchasers


Published

Finance Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam has announced that stamp duty on the purchase of residential properties will rise by 10% from today. The move is designed to calm down an overheating rise in real estate prices in the tiny island nation.

Permanent residents who buy a second property or more will pay an additional 3% stamp duty.
