COVID19: Sheng Siong Supermarket "Spoils Market" for NTUC FairPrice

Sheng Siong supermarket is truly impressive. After announcing an additional one month salary for its employees, it went around neighbourhoods silently giving donations at wakes out of kindness. This is setting the bar way too high for competitor NTUC FairPrice supermarket which is already being accused of raising its prices during COVID-19.

OXLEY ROAD CHARITABLE DONATION ENOUGH FOR 6 YEARS TAXES?

Did the seller take a charitable donation tax deduction? If so, the estimated tax credit is about $13.2 million (2.5 times tax deduction assuming the highest marginal tax rate of 22 per cent). The seller’s annual salary is reported to be $2.2 million – which would compute to an estimated annual income tax of about $450,000.

So, does it mean that the estimated charitable tax credit of about $13.2 million may be enough to pay for about six years (maximum carry forward of five years) of the seller’ income tax?

WHY DO DONORS POST THEIR DONATION PICTURES ONLINE?

I always get so disturbed when I see people on social media posting photos that show them doing kind deeds. Doing kindness does not need to be announced to the world. If you are giving up your seat to an elderly or giving directions to someone who is lost, would you post the photos? No, right?

S'PORE TOTE BOARD HAS BILLIONS BUT HOW MUCH USED TO HELP NEEDY S'POREANS?

What are the odds that more needy Singaporeans may get more help, as more people contribute to gaming revenue? Since the cash Budget surplus was $25 billion in FY2012 as well as FY2013 under IMF fiscal reporting guidelines, may I suggest that the law be reviewed to pay less “annual contributon to the government”, and donate more to charity. Is Singapore the country with the highest cash Budget surplus (per capita) in the world?
