Uber, Grab subject to same tax rules

We thank Mr Cho Hon Loon for his letter (Ensure Uber, Grab also comply with tax laws; Sept 24).

Sharing platform service providers are subject to the same tax rules as any other company operating in Singapore.

They are liable to corporate tax on income derived from their business operations and will have to file tax returns, together with relevant supporting documents, by Nov 30 every year.
