4. Conclusion

This chapter touches on the key distinctions between an employee and an independent contractor in Singapore. As there is no single test or factor which decisively determines whether an individual is engaged as an employee or an independent contractor, much will depend on how the working relationship is defined in the contractual document and the implementation of that relationship. A carefully drafted contract and well-consid-
ered corporate structure or work process will go a long way in helping to avoid the risk of creating a permanent establishment and of exposure to statutory and compliance requirements in Singapore.
