In an initative to help Singapore businesses combat rising costs, develop new technology and boost their efficiency, the government launched the Productivity and Innovation Credit (PIC) scheme.
The PIC scheme provides tax benefits for businesses that invest in productivity and innovation activities and successful applicants enjoy tax credits and reimbursement of their approved expenditure.That means buying items like computers and other equipment to improve their company’s operations can result in full reimbursement of their business expenses.
For the current year ending December 2014, businesses (refering to self-employed persons, including insurance agents, financial advisors, real estate agents, tradesmen), sole-proprietorships, limited liability partnerships, private limited companies can receive up to 160% reimbursement of approved activities.
What this means is spending $5,000 on a laptop means the government will reimburse you up to $8,000 (ie: 160%) if your business and your expense meets their qualifying criteria.
In particular, Internet marketers and those who use technology in their business operations (just about everyone) can benefit from this scheme.
If you look at the government website to sign up for the informational briefings, you can expect a 2-month or longer wait.
That’s one of the reasons why I’m helping to organize a series of informational briefings conducted by Daniel Goh, who has assisted in the submission of more than 100 successful PIC applications over the past 2 years.
The 160% reimbursement scheme ends this year, after which it drops to a 60% reimbursement scheme, so if it’s something you are considering, you should do it now.
Fill in your details in this form and you’ll receive information about the free briefings to be conducted in the coming weeks: PIC Informational briefing.

He already has built up a following and was asking the opinion of the group whether he should take up the offer or consider self-publishing.
My advice to him:
It depends on where you see your st (more…)
I hear this often and get into these conversations, sometimes multiple times each day.
“If everything is available free on the Internet, why would anyone pay for stuff they can find for free?”. I often hear this from business owners and Internet marketers who’re looking at doing a paid prod (more…)
This may come as a surprise to some of you.
Wait for it.
There’s more to the online business than just making money.
So, I often receive questions on my blog, in the forums on social media about how to get more stuff done with a limited amount of time and money.
I probably get many more questions centered around coming up with strat (more…)

As I’m coming back to rebuild my online business after about 2 years of neglect, I’m looking at what I have now.
Since shifting webhosting a couple of times to my current SSD cloud VPS hosting, I’ve lost a number of my product sites along the way.
Part of the rebuilding over the next couple of weeks is to have them up again.
If your sites are down, then you won’t be able to get sa (more…)
