u wont get caught, fined or watever if behind the combo is sitting with workers.

 

Same for non-workers too...can be legal if ur insurance cover the 5Pax behind...

For ur info,the number of pax sticker can only be pasted according to the size of the vehicle eg: per person on a certain number of square feet.And it is necessary to buy insurance for the number of pax stated,plus it only applies to the registered company's workers.It is illegal to ferry non-workers irregardless insurance or no insurance.

Just my 5 cents worth. :sweat:

By the way,Renault Kangoo is really quite a problematic ride.Get a japanese commercial veh,u'll not regret.

Confirm not enuff.Vans might be cheaper than cars,but i tink there isn't 10 yrs loan.Only 6-7yrs,therefore monthly can hit as hit as $500+.My Liteace is $33,500 n i'm paying $532 per month.Road tax is $263 for 6months,season ticket is $88.20 MSCP,diesel is around $200.So u calculate.

And yes,sole-proprietors can apply for a van but if u 1 2 go according to wat u planned on the tax thingy,bound to get tangled in the law someday.I've a fren working as a "tax police".They're now focusing on Sole proprietors.

Anyway,do whatever u deem fit,juz dun get caught.

the problem i forsee if you use a sole proprietorship to buy a van is the loan part. you will have problems applying for the loan...unless you pay full like me..

 

or..you already have a business registered which in business already...and making money...

 

yup...even if you have no profits..you will still have to pay the medisave part...

 

if you have a full time job which is contributing to your medisave then no issue..

 

most of the things you mentioned are all variables...the more you drive..the more you have to pay...

 

FYI, my road tax is $500 per year, ie $42 a month, insurance at $900 per year, ie $75 a month, season parking $65 a month, Cashcard roughly $60 a month, parking coupons roughly $20 a month.

 

thats $262 per month...

 

depending on your ride...maintenance will vary...i set aside $100 every month for vehicle repairs...every 3 months i will change my engine oil & all other normal items at $120, ie $40 a month...

 

timing belt and coolant pump roughly every 2 years, ie $650 per 24 months or $28 per month..

 

tyres roughly $240 per 18 months, or $14 per month...

 

and of course...your accessories lah...you will be tempted to put reverse camera...sound system...LCD screen...blah blah...this i shall not mention..cos its very much to individual...

 

all the above mentioned prices are based on my staff price....so it may not reflect the true market rate...

Don't mess with old farts. Age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill.

i just got back from malaysia...i entered legally via a special permit with another forum...really pushed my combo to its limits...160kmh!

 

basically there are a lot of red tape in getting a permit..not to mention the cost....

 

good luck..

Care to share your views on getting the permit thing?

 

So far this issue I read a bit here and there really no idea where it borders.

im sorry dudes...this is a safely guarded issue among people in the know...this is a open forums..you dont know who is seeing this...

 

if u seriously want to know....go to eurovanclub website...come down to their weekly meetups to register...and ask the seniors...i also dont know the exact procedure...but i know its quite troublesome..

will be hard cos your company is new...a loan might not be approved...

 

medisave if im not wrong is $500 for self employed...should not be a problem if you have a full time job...cos your employers are contributing it for you too...

 

yes....IRAS will send you a form to ask you to declare your profit & loss statement..yearly renewal of business registration is $20 if i didnt remember wrongly..

if u do not know..who will?

 

2 options...go to the different distributors/traders & test drive...

 

the other? join eurovanclub & go to their meetups...ask the different drivers of different models & decide...

Check out this CPF site

http://mycpf.cpf.gov.sg/Self-Employed/Gen-Info/FAQ/se_Medisave.htm

 

"All self-employed persons who earn a yearly net trade income of more than $6,000 need to contribute to Medisave."

 

So, if your company is "inactive" ($0 profit), u don't need to contribute to Medisave.
