Does Elliot need to declare the income earned from his gaming channel? #TaxSeason2022
Elliot earns subscription fees from his followers by regularly posting exclusive content such as gaming tips and tricks on a third-party platform (e.g. Patreon, Twitch, etc). Elliotís regular income from the content postings is taxable as trade income.
If Elliotís total annual net trade income exceeded $6,000 or total annual taxable income exceeded $22,000 last year, he will need to e-file a tax return by 18 April. The income earned from his gaming channel should be reported under "Trade, Business, Profession or Vocation" in his individual income tax form.

If you have to ask means u wont get in as you are not in inner circle.
The money is actually in full pte practice.
But u gotta fork out own malpractice insurance of 30k per year., While in public, they help u pay.

I've heard how toxic KK is for the permanent staff there across the entire hierachy. But just genuinely curious why some people remain there after so long. The only reason I can think of it is that the pay (after factoring in malpractice with no tail coverage) is worth the toxicity. Or perhaps the availability of research support an opportunities

Thumbs down

I wanna talk about the end of partnership of the medical school between LKCMed and Imperial College, I somehow see the shadow of Yale-NUS. Is the next one following this trend be Duke-NUS?

Feel betrayed btw as I graduated from Imperial. It's like using Imperial to pull LKCMed's ranking then ditches Imperial once LKCMed gets what it wants. Very much like the foreign talent policy that SG has - use liao then ditch. Just look at the HCW in the hospital. Ditchable, disposable, recyclable and reusable. Sustainability much.

huh?
what talking u
are u really so naivie and ....stupid?

1. pls la, u think imperial want to pair up with LCK out of the goodness of their heart to spread education? NTU paid them lots of money for the partnership and in return get their expertise. Cant pay them forever right? now that LCK is up and running , its time to end the partnership. Imperial entered it with the knowledge.

2. LCK is a local medical school built to train doctor for local work. Who cares about rank. you either 1, 2, or 3.

3. Duke NUS should end long ago.

Thought I'd share my perspective.

I'm US trained in internal medicine and practice in the US working as a hospitalist. The rest of the world doesn't have hospitalists but they are basically wards-only inpatient hospital physicians who manage the patient from start to finish and place consults to specialists only if needed (for example we call GI and ask them to do an endoscopy in a patient with bleeding, or call cards to help manage a difficult rhythm but we still take full ownership of the patient for their other co-morbid conditions while they are hospitalized).

I make about 310K USD per year which after taxes and healthcare expenses puts me at about 215k USD per year take home pay. I work about 195 shifts per year (shifts are 9 hours long).

I traveled to Singapore a few years ago and absolutely loved it and would love to live there and practice (if they had a similar hospitalist position). Does anyone know if anything like this exists in Singapore?

I see a lot of numbers thrown around on this thread where consulting physicians can expect around 15-20k per month in SGD. Are these numbers pre-tax or after tax? What would the annual take home amount look like?

Pre tax but our taxes are Low. Very low
Hospitalists are called internal or general medicine in Singapore.

Duke NUS didnít ask for large sums of money.
Duke NUS has enough foreign students to pay full fees.
So duke collaboration going v strong for 20 plus years
Anyway lkc medicine without imperial or not . No diff lah.
You still get full Reg.

By the way u only pay 30k per year for lkc education, not the full 100k per year as international student in imperial .
Cheap things no good, good things no cheap.

The Luigi one is Yale NUS but too bad then. Suddenly cancel arrangement,
