📑 Hong Kong | Entertainment Licensing

The primary objective is to establish a business-friendly and effective regulatory framework for various entertainment venues, including places of public entertainment (PPEs), amusement game centers (AGCs), and amusement rides. PPEs, encompassing concerts, cinemas, circuses, exhibitions, and sporting events, require licensing from the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) to ensure compliance with safety regulations covering fire, building, electrical, ventilation, and crowd management aspects. AGCs, catering to both adults and children, are licensed by designated public officers under the Secretary for Home and Youth Affairs. Amusement rides must be approved by the Director of Electrical and Mechanical Services (DEMS) to ensure their safe design, installation, and operation.

💸 Singapore | Singapore Budget 2024: Overview of Tax Changes for Individuals

In the Singapore Budget 2024, the Minister for Finance announced two key tax changes for individuals. Firstly, for the Year of Assessment 2024, all tax-resident individuals will receive a 50% Personal Income Tax (PIT) Rebate, capped at $200, to address concerns about the cost of living. Secondly, the income threshold for various dependent-related reliefs, including Spouse Relief and Parent Relief, will be raised from $4,000 to $8,000 for the Year of Assessment 2025, aiming to extend benefits to more taxpayers supporting dependent family members and allowing family members the flexibility to engage in employment.

📌 Singapore | Singapore Budget 2024: Uplifting Lower-Wage Workers

The government will implement key adjustments to bolster support for lower-wage workers through Workfare, Progressive Wages, and the Local Qualifying Salary (LQS).

Workfare, designed to supplement incomes and CPF savings, will undergo enhancements effective January 2025. The qualifying monthly wage cap will increase to $3,000, with maximum annual payments rising to $4,900 across all age brackets and wage levels. Self-employed individuals will also see corresponding increases.

The LQS, part of the Progressive Wages initiative, will rise from $1,400 to $1,600 per month starting in July 2024. This ensures that local workers are fairly compensated, influencing foreign worker quotas accordingly.

Enhancements to the Progressive Wage Credit Scheme (PWCS) will strengthen support for employers in raising wages. Co-funding for eligible wage increases in 2024 will increase, and the wage ceiling for co-funding will rise to $3,000 in 2025 and 2026.

These adjustments aim to uplift lower-wage workers while maintaining control over the foreign workforce, fostering a fairer and more sustainable employment landscape in Singapore.

🔏 Singapore | Singapore Budget 2024: Fortifying Cybersecurity through a New National Cybersecurity Command Centre

Singapore’s commitment to national security is evident in the continued investment in defense, with approximately 3% to 4% of GDP allocated to MINDEF annually. Over the past decade, domestic security expenditure has doubled to over $8 billion, reflecting a steadfast dedication to safeguarding citizens. Moving forward, investments in the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) and Home Team will persist, ensuring their capabilities are enhanced to tackle evolving threats. To honor national servicemen, a $200 LifeSG credit initiative is introduced, benefiting 1.2 million servicemen and costing $240 million. Additionally, Singapore is adapting to the digital defense landscape by establishing the Digital and Intelligence Service within the SAF and launching the National Cybersecurity Command Centre in Punggol Digital District to bolster cyber defense capabilities and foster collaboration with industry and academia.

🛡️ Taiwan | Old vs. New: Pension Contribution Comparison

The old scheme pension, established in 2005, mandates contributions ranging from 2% to 15% of a worker’s monthly wage, with benefits contingent upon meeting specific work seniority and age criteria. In contrast, the new pension system under the Labor Pension Act requires employers to contribute a minimum of 6% of a worker’s monthly wage, with workers able to voluntarily contribute up to 6%. Eligibility for pension payments in the old scheme is determined by work seniority or age, while the new system sets the age threshold at 60, with provisions for survivors or designated beneficiaries in case of death before reaching that age. The old scheme’s benefits are calculated based on a formula, while the new system’s benefits are determined by the accumulated principal and accrued dividends of the pension account, with ownership resting with the worker rather than the employer.
